Having problems with your Flat Panel Televisions ?

Vertical white lines appear on the screen. Samsung provides the following information but doesn't say what circuitry they are referring to. Samsung says: DLP TV: I Have Vertical White Lines Appearing On The Screen When I Watch Video, TV, Cable And DVD. If you see vertical lines on the screen of your DLP TV similar or identical to the pictures below, the circuitry controlling the vertical hold has failed, and you need to get your TV serviced.

Answers :

That answer I agree makes no sense.

Most of these sets have NO vertical hold and if did it will not cause the lines.

A brief educated guess:

Set has a main board that communicates and controls the screen--tests for that are not simple (checking waveforms with a scope and signal generator).

The model indicated here is a DLP that uses a lamp (let me know if model listed is not the one you have).

In DLP sets aside from main/digital board you also have a optical light engine---it processes all signal in and out to the screen.

Optical engines do fail and cause some simple and some complicated picture issues.

Some will even cause the set to "lock up" with a picture or strange looking screen---clue to this is you have to shut the set off by pulling the power cord.

The set may be old enough they do not really want to help you or even talk about it.

I have a 1999 Panasonic TV Model# CT32SF35W Serial# MD83450372. When I turn it on the picture doesn't always fully expand vertically, or it will fully expand and there will be blank white lines through the picture, or it will start the shrink and collapse toward the center line of the screen. I've read that this issue may be caused by the vertical IC, or leaking transistors or capacitors. I was wondering if this sounds correct and how costly of a repair this would be.

I have a RCA L26WD26D Flat Screen TV. When you turn it on it will say "please wait". This lasts for 30 seconds or so. Then that goes off and the screen turns black with some sections turning white.

My LG led has had several problems, it started out with the left half of the screen flipping as if viewed from a mirror with the right part of the screen normal. After that, it displayed vertical colored lines (blue, yellow, black, white, etc) which went away and now it shows a vertical bar about 4 inches across that looks darker than the rest of the picture. I also noticed images burning in everywhere except that bar. I know it's a lot of issues but any help would be appreciated.
