Electronics Repair Questions? Ask an Electronics Technician
Hello, I will review your submission hopefully answer your question.
ok so what do u think is the problem
hello are u there
This is a Plasma correct? How old?
yes and it is a little over a 1 old
its a thin green line going down the screen on almost the corner on the screen
do you have sound?
i switch the cable on the hd box to a hdmi and it still shows the thin green line going down the screen
Sorry for delay, it could be the HDMI cable. Is it a good quality and what is the length? Usually over 10' can cause this problem.
am not useing the hdmi cable i try it witha hdmi cable to see if that was the problem and it wasn't it am useing the hd cables that came with hd box from dish network
i never had this problem before untill up about a wk ago this started to happen with the line going down the screen
You didn't change ant connections then?
This line never moves from one part of the screen to another, it's always in the exact same position, correct?
yes that is correct the line never moves stays in the same spot on every ch and input
I'm sorry to say but if it does shows up in exactly the same place every time on all channels, formats, the problem is the actual panel, main screen itself.
You have 1 year as you said and unless this is under warranty, this is going to be a major expense to fix.
and what do u thing something like this might cost to fix at a tv repair center
It would be wise to have someone come look at it and provide an estimate........a repair tech service call (if not emergency shouldn't be more than about $50 to $80 depending on where you live.
Well, based on previous experience it will be expensive and may not be worth the cost for repair.
ok well thanks for u help know i have a idea on what to do.
Hopefully you have an extended warranty. If not it is wise to purchase one for wear items like Plasma, LCD and LED TVs.
