Stephen Hamilton: I did this step by step and it worked. Until I but the metal bezel on and
the whole screen went out. Any Ideas?
Tampatec: Liked, how long will that last on average?
J.K. James: Worked
Melody Willock: Followed every step of the video, then as I was reattaching the plate
around the screen the bottom part cracked and splintered throughout the
Enrico Raymundo: What about if the display has a horizontal distorted lines waves, and the
pictures above duplicate on below? (The TV is LCD/LED DeVANT 46)
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.
Cody Bartram: This vid is a LIFESAVER
Thank you so much!
NITIN AGGARWAL: i had Samsung LED TV UA40D5000PR, it has screen problem.
when i switch it on sometimes its shows vertical lines starting from center
of the screen from top to bottom and then goes to whole screen.
but this problem is not always. then i power it off and make its power on
after 15-20 minutes it works fine.
so this problem is not always but comes and goes by power it on or off and
restart after 15-20 minutes.
kindly guide me what to do.
i had already unplugged the ribbon strip of t-con board and cleaned it and
again put it back, but the problem exist as it is.
awaiting your kind advice.
Dorian Alexander: bruhh
Robert Whiteman: Worked for me, thanks!
David Samuels: Thank You So VERY MUCH for this video!!!

More word NEEDS to get out about the TAB problem because MANY repair

April Maldonado: Thanks so much im a do it your self type of women but girly to so

lifting and was very easy for me to fix were very grateful
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?
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.
1Blastarr: Do you have any problems with heat with those IC's being under the rubber?
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???
rittbo06: Thank You for this video. Fixed my TV instantly.
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 :)
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!!!!
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 ?
Bones Malone: I tried this fix and it worked when I put the ribbon back in. I now have a
blue screen? any ideas?
AnimalAnswers807: im gonna try this
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.....................
Aaron Silvestri: Thanks for the info man! Got a 46" working with your ideas :)
Solitario solito: is the same for horizontal lines ?
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?
Ken Pappas: Great. What is the thickness of those shims?
سناء قداب: iam freak you
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.
sairsad: hello! I have the same problem but it is SAMSUNG LED type LE40A336. do you
think it works ?
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
Roe Carter: Ty so much I have a Hisense tv and this solution worked for me only I used
pizza box cardboard lol
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
RobotronZone: Those ribbons are glued on so after time the tv gets hot and the glue
loosens just a bit , which causes the problem
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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
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
laure atkinson: GREAT VIDEO
Miguel Ycaza: great video this fixed my tv Worked perfect.
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!!
