Having problems with your Flat Panel Televisions ?

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



Answers :

Hi, I purchased the same model in November 2009. About 2 weeks ago a single horizontal line appeared. Each day another appeared until today when the video went out. Now it displays bands of vertical colored lines like a pastel colored rainbow. Did you find a solution to the problem?

I have a SANYO DP46848, 46 inch flat screen hdtv purchased about 2 - 3 years ago. The screen goes dark on the left side (top .25% is ok). It sometimes fixes itself after an hour or so.

I have a Sony KF-42WE610. It has developed evenly spaced lateral lines across the picture (double the lines for Hi Def). Looks like a tube television that needs the vertical hold adjusted. The screen jumps when cold, but gets better after warming up. The lines never go away. Looks like electrical interference. I have disconnected everything from it and switched outlets. Still same symptoms. Any idea what could cause this?
