You have problems in your vertical area and also sounds like convergence issue. This will need much work on board.

Black screen of death - DP42746

I am a military spouse and our same tv did the same thing on Super Bowl Sunday 2009! We did everything we know to do: call the company, called the repair man, etc. There apparently isn't a solution to this that wouldn't cost more than the tv is worth. So I got an attorney to start a class action:

  1. Lift the scanner unit. The print cartridge carrier moves and stops at the loading position. sscano.jpg
  2. Press down on the cartridge lever to raise the cartridge lid. scrtrpc1.jpg
  3. Remove the old cartridge. Dispose of empty ink cartridges (see Recycling Lexmark products). Use the cartridge storage unit that came with your photo cartridge to store partially used cartridges for future use. See Using the cartridge storage area. scrtrpc2.jpg
Note: If you are removing both cartridges, repeat steps 2 and 3 for the second cartridge.
Installing the print cartridges Note: If you are installing a photo print cartridge, remove it from the print cartridge storage unit. Place the empty print cartridge storage unit in the cartridge storage area. For help, see Using the cartridge storage area.
  1. If you are installing new cartridges, remove the sticker and transparent tape from the back and bottom of the cartridges. staperem.jpg
Warning: Do not touch the copper contact area on the back or the metal nozzles on the bottom of the cartridges.
  1. Unless they are already open, press down on the cartridge levers to raise the cartridge lids. sctnin2.jpg
  2. Insert the black cartridge or the photo cartridge in the left carrier. Insert the color cartridge in the right carrier. sctnin3.jpg
  3. Snap the lids closed. sctnin4.jpg
  4. Close the scanner unit. sscanc.jpg
Note: The control panel display will prompt you to print an alignment page.

Widescreen tv=widescreen movie still have black on top & bottom

Sorry, you didn't provide enougb information for anyone to accurately answer your question. The most important thing you omiited was the nature of your video source. If anyone does answer this, I assure you it will be a wild guess. Here's my wild guess:

Your HDTV has a widescreen aspect ratio of 16:9. For every 16 units of width, there are 9 units of height. That ratio matches the exact ratio used in widescreen television broadcasting. However, most feature films (movies) on DVD have an aspect ratio of 2.35:1 or even wider than that. These films will display with horizontal black bars at the top and the bottom, so that you can see the full image. Unless you choose to use one of your TV or your DVD player's options to zoom or crop the image, the bars are 'correct' and there's nothing wrong.

Another possibility is that you have not configured your video source, such as a DVD player, to 'know' that you have a widescreen TV. Nearly all DVD players ship configured to output using a NON-widescreen aspect ratio, so you must adjust this setting using your player's setup menu. The same is true for most cable boxes and satellite receivers.

Finally, just because your TV is widescreen, the video source itself may not be. Most standard-definition broadcasts are NOT widescreen, for example.

If you re-post your question with adequate information about which video source exhibits this problem, I'm sure you will get much more specific and helpful answers.

Lights come on but nothing shows its black.lens looks good

I have seen a few of this model and the tubes were gone in each case. Best way is to check if HV present at tube - get someone who knows what they are doing to take a look. If it is the tube, it will be expensive to repair. Unscrewing the lens may reveal that the inner surface of the tube has dark marks, also indicating possible tube damage.
