Hi everyone - new to the Forum and I've been searching high and low for an answer to my current issue: I have the Sony FWD-42LX1 LCD Monitor for my Cox HD service. As of tonight, the monitor(TV) started floating a faint purple line horizontally from bottom to top (intermittently). Is this the sign of LCD failure or something that can be removed? Or, am I just plain up Sh** Creek and have to replace it? The TV is less than a year old!!! This is my baby (my first 42" LCD TV) and I don't want to say good-bye yet... please advise. Thanks and looking forward to your answers.

Welcome to the forums. Can you post a screen shot?
Is it on all inputs?

Abundant OTA television is what makes this country different from all others. Lets keep it this way. If you like Wi-Fi so much, OTA fits right in. After all, it is wireless.

Sounds like a ground loop problem rather than a bad lcd. Did you change anything else in your home regarding cable, sat or something electrical (replace an appliance or outlet or something)
