Tampatec: Liked, how long will that last on average?
J.K. James: Worked
Cody Bartram: This vid is a LIFESAVER
Thank you so much!
Pooh Davis: Mine is a different model of 46" Sanyo, it was bought at Walmart 6 years
ago. It had horiz lines running across the entire top of the screen coming
down about 6-8". It has a few more more IC's across the top than yours, no
channels stamped into the metal frame either, just foam spacers put in at
the factory to press against the IC's (what does that tell you). All I did
was place some thin foam weather stripping on top of the ribbon cable right
on top of the IC's. It's been running perfect for a week. Thanks for the
heads up sir.
Alberto Garcia: I have a 54 inch Lcd sony bravía that has a ghost image on the right half
side of the screen. Will this method fix it?
Dorian Alexander: bruhh
AnimalAnswers807: im gonna try this
April Maldonado: Thanks so much im a do it your self type of women but girly to so
was.wondering if i can pull it out had my hubby and friends do the heavy
lifting and was very easy for me to fix were very grateful
Solitario solito: is the same for horizontal lines ?
RobotronZone: Those ribbons are glued on so after time the tv gets hot and the glue
loosens just a bit , which causes the problem
سناء قداب: iam freak you
Stephen Low: You need to be careful about placing rubber between the metal frame and the
bond chip, It uses the dimple in the frame as a heat sink as well as a
press. Could you have tried heat on the that chip's pins to reflow it a
laure atkinson: GREAT VIDEO
Robert Whiteman: Worked for me, thanks!
Bobby Rutgers: It worked! I had to do it a little differently, putting pressure on the
cable didn't do anything, it seemed that putting pressure on the glass
where the cable goes into glass worked, so I shimmed it with a few layers
of a business card cut into small strips, held in place with a piece of
electrical tape also cut into a thin strip and sandwiched it in between the
glass and metal frame, hopefully it gives me a bit more life out of the tv.
John Tate: Thanks man I have the exact same tv. It was doing this on the right side
only. Worked perfect. TY
Miguel Ycaza: great video this fixed my tv Worked perfect.
Stanley Forkner: I tried this with my 46" sanyo and it worked. Thank you very much. Mine had
a dozen of those strips though and I only put the rubber strips on the top
part but hasn't failed me yet!!!!
Richie L: I have a 2009 46 Sanyo DP46849. Would this be a similar if not identical
fix for it as well? If so thank you alot ahead of time.I saw others say
they use card board will this work also or be a fire hazard?
Roe Carter: Ty so much I have a Hisense tv and this solution worked for me only I used
pizza box cardboard lol
David Samuels: Thank You So VERY MUCH for this video!!!
I'm having this problem with my Samsung 52" across the whole screen after
about 10 minutes of watching it. I will be implementing this fix as yours
is "only" the second video I've seen with a diagnosis of this sort of
More word NEEDS to get out about the TAB problem because MANY repair
shops/services DON'T Know how easy this is to fix!
Ballistic Tuna: Quick question. I have the same problem when I turn the tv on. After about
20 minutes of warmup it goes away. I will be trying your fix either way.
Great job on the video! Haters please go away. He is helping folks :)
Bobby Rutgers: I have the same TV and it's been doing this randomly for a while now. Last
night I got fed up with it and found that if I applied pressure to the top
of the tv it would fix it so I sandwiched a piece of folded paper between
the metal frame and plastic bezel and it fixed it.. until I turned it on
tonight, I'll have to try this.
joe bigtool: You know you are hurting the tv repair business,if you do this for a living
you are just cutting your own throat,yep great job,you will be out of work
soon if you keep this up.
rittbo06: Thank You for this video. Fixed my TV instantly.
Christopher Galis: I have a vizio 3dtv that the right hand side of the screen gives me a half
black screen while cold. after about 30 min it warms up and works fine,
does anybody know if this will work for my tv as well???
CeLoRican: Hello there I try this out and it worked for me but now I have a problem i
have no picture at all any suggestions ?
Sam Flores: Dude! I have the same brand and model TV I didn't want to spend my kids
Christmas money on a new TV. Thank you! I read the comments someone left
about hurting the tv repair business but that's what you tube is about I
get tips about motorcycle repair etc. My kids thank you buddy! Screw that
dude that left that comment half of people these days can't even turn a
wrench or a screwdriver!
1975vini: tv `s manufacturer use poor flex cable materials , poor quality ,and yes,
programmed to fail with overheating use . however strategy ??? ,. i `m sure
zoomanmc: Dynex 38" doing the same thing. We could press the left corner and it would
clear up. When it started it was 5 inches wide and effect the left side of
the screen. That was about 8 months ago. In the last week its been half the
screen like in the video.
Took it apart today and and added blue foam shims about 2mm thick. Took
about 1hr with some cleaning.
Seems to be working great.
Thank you Sir.....................
1Blastarr: Do you have any problems with heat with those IC's being under the rubber?
Ken Pappas: Great. What is the thickness of those shims?
Aaron Silvestri: Thanks for the info man! Got a 46" working with your ideas :)
sairsad: hello! I have the same problem but it is SAMSUNG LED type LE40A336. do you
think it works ?
Jeri Mckinney: i have an olvia 42in 242-T11 I HAVE THE SAME LINE PLUS FLASHING BUT THEY
ARE HORIZONTAL INSTEAD OF VERTICAL HELP PLEASE
Meathead: I have this same exact TV and used this method except I just cut some lil
1"x1/4" strips out of a styrofoam plate instead of an old tire tube. I have
no electronics background. But when all put back together there's no more
half dark ghost screen. Guess we'll see how long it last.
Alex Aljo: i have sony bravia klv-32s400a while watching my tv the smoke comes out
from the tv the power goes out power led indecator keeps on blingking. when
i open it the smoke comes from the t-con board and IC nos.U6 was blown.if i
replace and buy new t-con board it will not blown again?thanks pls.
Hen2DaRock: any advice every thing was working good.until i put the meddle frame back
on now i have no image it power on and stay on but its just a blank screen
any help or advice
Andrew Schmidt: I have a 46 sanyo dp46849. Would this be a similar if not identical fix for
it as well? If so thank you alot ahead of time as we just don't have the
money right now to purchase a new tv.
bigdog8882: You should start selling those little rubber tabs as a kit. I would have a
hard time going into a tire shop explaining to them what I needed. Good
Mousa Msh: You sir, AMAZING! Thank you so much for the help and I got my TV fixed and
its working perfectly but I placed the rubbers and they sort of slipped out
on the screen layer Will it effect the performance of the TV? (Such as
Overheating, Playback time)
zaprodk: Thsi may be a problem with "SANYO" TV's but the panel is from AU Optronics,
so it seems that AUO have a manufacturing problem, not Sanyo.
Javier RO: i hafe this problem, in external monitor works grate
Rob77Redskins: norcal715, I have a Sony 50e2000 Grand Wega that has an optical block
failure. I was looking at a 50" Sanyo FVM5082 at Sam's Club to replace it.
After spending $2,000 bucks on the Sony, only to have it fail, makes the
Sanyo look more attractive because of the price. Is this problem still
common with the newer Sanyos? Is it as common as the optical block failure
was with the Sony Grand Wegas? I read on a tech forum that Sanyo LCD TVs
were very reliable. Is that accurate?
rcwood28: Awesome tip! Worked like a charm! Had this same problem with the same TV
and this totally worked! Thanks for posting this!!
David Aponte: Did exactly what you did but used cardboard shims and masking tape....was
too excited to get the stuff u used. You are through and I appreciate your
vids. Thank s for this awesome upload. I bought TV for $30 and came across
this later,. Its perfect now.
becki4bears: Anyone have a more permant solution to this? It lasted a while, but is
moonlitnitz1: You are the man! We just fixed our Sanyo tv doing what you showed us here.
We spent all day looking and planning on buying a new tv. Thank God we
decided to wait.Thank you so much! Hopefully it will last a little while
Andre Franca: Thank you very much. You did and show how great some people are to do and
share goodness to the others. Good Bless You, for your performance and
helping to fix my TV. Works great. Thanks Again. SunnyTA2002.
