Hello , my name is Jack
Perhaps I can help you with this problem but first i would have a few questions ;
Do you mean that you have that bar only on the left side ??
If you open the TV's menu , does it cover that bar or is it still there ?
Is this tv connected to a cable box/converter,satellite receiver,digital converter etc ?
Or directly to antenna/cable from the wall outlet ,no box with its own remote ?

I love this site! $9 instead of a repairman or new/used frig can't be beaten. This older woman will worry less now that she knows about this site. Bless you all.
