What could cause a thin vertical red line to appear on my LCD television?

Asked by flutherother (31660points) September 6th, 2011

I first noticed this a week ago and I cured it by switching the set off for a few minutes. It happened again this morning and I had to switch the set on and off several times before it cleared. Any idea what causes this?

I don’t know but how long have you had it and is it still under warranty?

Are you getting this when you turn it off and on only with the remote control?

Download and run the program jsceenfix .
That might work for you.

I had that happen on a computer screen when it got a little wet in the rain.

@zensky The TV is out of warranty I’m afraid
@Brian1946 It happens when using the remote and the TV on/off switch
@worriedguy Thanks, I’ll try that
@filmfann No it hasn’t got wet.
Thanks for your replies.
