Solved: Over the course of time, the cheap plastic frame and stand starts to put uneven pressure on the LCD causing it to malfunction. I guessing this could be heat related. Definitely a design flaw. Remove the bottom of the stand and very slightly loosed the small screws around the back of the frame allowing the LCD to have some wiggle room. After I did this, it worked. It will still misbehave if you stress the LCD, but normally, it shouldn't. I am going to try to mount the TV using the rear VESA mounts & see if it will still work.

Hello, I bought an LG 47LH50 HDTV exactly 1 1/2 years ago. Black horizontal lines suddenly appeared one night after getting home from work. Over the past two weeks I've seen it go from 3 lines, to 4 and now I have at least 5 horizontal lines...some more prominent than others. They are darker on the right and fade as they go across the screen to the left....almost like dead rows of pixels that come back to life as you go left. They do not fliker or move. For my first HDTV I have to say I

LNT4665FX/AA recently vertical colored lines have appeared about 3 inches from left side. They seem to be displayed on screen rather than permanent lines, because as you examine them one or two may go on and off. Over recent months they have multiplied... first it was one line and now about 10. Lines are well defined and very narrow in a variety of colors. Otherwise picture is perfect. I've never updated with internet connection. Is this repairable? Might a download help? My feeling is that it

I am having pinstripe lines appearing on the right side of my screen. After about 2 hrs of playing, many of them go away. Overall, they started as 2 or 3 and have steadily increased over time. TV repair guy said it was the T-Con Module. Is this accurate and what is the cost of obtaining one from the open market? Last but not least, how difficult is it to replace the T-Con Module?

Tn61x81 My screen has a horizontal black arcing line across the top and bottom of he screen. The bottom is worse. It almost covers 1/2 the screen. I changed the convergence chips with no luck. I can tap on the side of the set and it works for about an hour, then it comes right back. Also, I have tried to get a service manual for this tv and cannot find one, any suggestions on how to fix this problem would be greatly appreciated.

On my HD1080 Mitsubishi projection flat screen the picture is bowed on top and bottem and it look as if the projectors themselves are offset, but the picture is clearer as you come toward the center. If I smack the side the picture will sometimes come back into focus. But the picture will soon after go back out of focus and sharp swiggly lines streak across horizonally. How can I fix this problem and how much might it cost.


You have poor contacts and or dry joints. Resoldering on the convergeance panel and powersupply/line timebase board will probably fix it.It should take less than an hour in labour terms. ... Mitsubishi WS-65809 65" Rear Projection Television

I have a 42LG20-UM that is having some issues. On the right side onf the TV the color gets distorted and there are shodows of the images from the show we are watching at the time. Now over a period of time it eventually goes back to normal but as soon as it is shut off it starts over.

Picture with no sound on Samsung LNS-4692DX. Samsung was of NO help. I followed the excellent instructions posted by fun2 and Ida2 but I did not prepoerly remove one of two orange ribbons on the T-Conn board and when I installed the new Tconn, the right half side of the screen has a green tint that distorts the picture badly. The left side is fine. My questions is does anyone know if I need a new orange ribbon and if so, how do I replace the old one at both ends? Otherwise, is the ribbon fixable
