It sounds like you have a small crack on your screen that has gotten worse over time, these black areas are where the lcd crystals aren't active anymore, unfortunately there isn't allot you can do apart from buy a new screen or put up with the black lines.

Powermac screen developed fine black grid and won't operate properly


Isolate the problem to see if it's the screen or video card by connecting another monitor to the computer. Borrow a monitor from a neighbor, friend, relative or co-worker and connect it to the computer. If the Borrowed monitor displays ok without a problem then your original screen is bad and your video card is good. If the Borrowed monitor displays the same problems as your original then your video card inside the computer is bad.

Vertical lines across screen on my panasonic tv PT-61LCX65


Try setting a portable fan aimed toward the cooling vents on the back of the set. If this eliminates or reduces the occurance of the lines, this means a circuit that controls the off/on of individual pixels has developed a thermal problem. This circuit is ordinarily loacted on the main circuit board and is likely to degrade further. You might inquire at the Panasonic service center if they have an exchange program in place and they will probably be able to confirm my suspicions.

Black spot


Hi,

If the black spot is always on the same location then you have to clean your lens, if it changes location, bring it to the service center for firmware reload.

I hope this helps.

Black line running horizontally across TV screen


A line on an LCD, either horizontal or vertical usually means the video driver board is defective or the screen is defective, does it show up as black even on a dark screen? That means a line of LCD "shutter"s is not working and there is a problem that cant be fixed by a reboot or channel change. Bummer.
