This looks like you have a convergence problem, very common.

I have start to finish step by step instructions for this repair in this set, they tell you everything you will need and HOW to do the repair.

If you can use a screwdriver and either you or someone you know can solder, repair will cost under 25 dollars in parts and take a hour or so to do and I will be available to assist you if you need help.

Before you rate this solution let me know if photos I attach look anything like your problem and if you have questions make a comment here.

no two sets will look exactly the same but you should be able to tell if your set has this type of problem.

Why won't my Russand R850MC amplifier play sounds into our multi-room setup?

It's hard to find electrical repair shops today, so it looks like the next best bet would be to contact their support. There's a link on the page. It looks like a pretty sturdy unit, but I couldn't find a schematic anywhere.

Ltv-32w4 has backlight on but no picture am getting vertical lines on screen in rainbo colors

If back light on inverters used are good---most likely a problem with the main board that controls all information and the screen as well.

It fills up with water in the reserve to the top and flows onto the floor

There is a float switch that should stop the water from picking up when the regular reservior fills. I dont know what machine you have, but assume it is a Rainbo or a Black and Decker. You will need to replace the float switch to repair the problem Go on line and google your machine do it yourself repair manual. You can down load it free of charge. If the machine is under warranty, call the store or where ever you purchased it.

What is the red line on my lcd tv

LCD tv's are made up of pixels which give you the Liquid Crystal Display. It looks like a whole line of your red pixels are just staying on. There is no way of fixing this problem other than with a manufacturer warranty replacement or just replace the unit all together.
