Hi,

Sounds like a vertical problem if the center line is left to right. Chances are that it's the Vertical IC. If giving the TV a light tap at the sides causes a momentary opening, then it is a cold solder condition on the same IC.

Both of course would require opening the TV and performing the necessary repair. You should be familiar with components and electronic circuitry as well as soldering.  Should you be not that comfortable, perhaps your best bet is to seek the services of a qualified TV technician.

Good luck and kind regards.

Dark line down the middle of my flat screen tv


Most LCD and PLASMA sets use two boards (some combine them into one board) that drive the Display Panel (the entire front screen unit) so I would suspect one of yours is bad.

The other unpleasant possible cause is where the left board is connected to the Display Panel (entire front screen unit) you have a problem inside that Display Panel and that is fatal as there is no way to get INSIDE the panel---it can cause both lines and a dark picture on one side of the screen.

GPX PDL705---Picture very dark


Sounds like the back lighting of the LCD screen is faulty. Is it a new unit - take it back. You might try the brightness and contrast controls and turn them up. If that doesn't help it needs to be repaired.

The TV turns on and you can hear the sound but the picture is dark except for a thin line of blue dots in the center of the screen.


You have whats known in the biz as a cold solder connection on the vertical output IC or on the associated components. Not a job for the handi-man unless you know the issues with safty, and precautions to take with Hi voltage inside of tv sets. Shouldnrt cost much for the local shop to find your problem . Now on rare occations the poor connections are inside the IC and the IC has to be replaced. Good Luck
