I have a 50" Philips TV Model # XXXXX which is about

I have a 50" Philips TV Model # XXXXX which is about 8 years old. Within the last two weeks, it has started showing a "washed out" "staticy" area in the bottom left-hand corner, and to a much lesser extent, along the left edge of the screen. The distortion seems to be related to the image being displayed on the screen.The bottom area of the screen also now seems prone to after-images for high-contrast or light areas. For example, my kids were watching a DVD of a teacher doing a math problem in front of a green chalkboard. The camera didn't move, which gave the words written in white chalk a few seconds to burn in. When the teacher (wearing a light blue denim shirt) moved in front of the the words, the words "shown through", him. In time, the words fade out (replaced by whatever other white stuff appeared on screen), so it's not a case that they're permanently burned in--it s just a lot of temporary noise.I've eliminated the inputs as a cause of the distortion, because the distortion does not go away when we pop up the in-TV menu. The bottom left edge is still white and washed out. (The menu takes up the whole screen, and does not display the incoming signal.) I haven't opened it up yet (it's 130+lbs, and we have to get it off of the wall.) (I think) I've got the skills to open it up and do board replacement...just need to figure out what needs replacing...

I have a Sony 40 inch HDTV flat screen TV that has distortion

I have a Sony 40 inch HDTV flat screen TV that has distortion running down the right side of the screen. I called Sony (now I can't find the phone number) and they told me it was a cable problem. I called the cable company (Cox) and they sent out a serviceman who determined it was not the cable, but the TV. The distortion only appears on this TV, not the others in the house, and it is there when I play a DVD. I purchased the TV in 2008. Do you have any suggestions on how to get this fixed?Joan

I have a 4 year old 32" JVC HD television that has just started to get a series of horz. lines across the top of the television. They are distorting the picture from the top down about four to five inches. Have tried another set and no problem with the feed. Is this an easy fix or a sign of something terminal to come.
