Question about Sanyo DP46848 LCD TV
I have the same problem, my television is faded black on the left side with lines on the left top side. I have had the 46 inch unit for 1 year and 7 months. I am planning to write a demand letter to Sanyo and then taking them to small claims court woth evidence that this is a common problem with their units that they know about and is not trying to remedy. Also the Attorney general in Texas should have an interest in them (Walmart and Sanyo) selling these defective proucts in the state.

I have this same problem. It used to fix itself after the TV warmed up and I would just leave the tv on all day. Now, the lines and darkness cover the top fourth of my screen (worse on the left side) all the time. This problem occurred a month after my warranty expired. Did you ever get any answers?

I have this tv and fixed it's problem. The problem was that the top right and right side of the picture would go bad (lines in screen, black spot, right side of screen going back). Usually it would be ok after "touching" the top right corner of the tv but it go to the point I was doing this constantly. I watched a youtube video about placing rubber strips over and under the ribbon cables to the lcd screen at the top of the tv. I proceeded to follow the you tube video but discovered that my problem was the lcd coming de-laminated at the top right of the LCD. Using 1/8" self-adhesive foam tape I placed 2, 8 inch strips of this foam tape in each corner of the metal frame over the lcd glass. This fixed my problem completely.

I have the same problem with the Sanyo TV DP46848, the screen going to black shadows. Mine lasted just over 3 years. Sanyo refused to accept the fact that it is a manufacturing defect. They just kept stating that I am sorry but I can't help you. On July 28, 2012 I filed a complaint with the NYS Attorney Generals Office. I paid $998 at Walmart for this TV. I say them yesterday in Walmart for $448. How can they continue to flood the market with this junk. Do Not Buy Sanyo.

We have the same issues, its also the 46" Sanyo/Walmart sold, Our far right side and sometimes the entire right half black out or the picture becomes distorted on the far right, Unfortunalty for most of us posting here, the flex cable from the LCD display control board to the LCD display itself, (the screen you look at) is bad, its un-fixable without replacing the entire LCD screen, which sells for more then we paid for the TV. Our household is fortunate to have a professional circuit specialist living here, we tried a lot of different things and although we used very expensive tools and loops to get a closer look at the cables, we were unable to come up with any repair.

There is no solution this has happened to me 3 times in 13 months each time they replaced the screen panel (basicly the whole TV) I have a 2 year service contract, the next time it does it they will not bring it back but will write me a check for the price I payed for this peice of ****.!!! Do not bother fixing it.
