Noob here, looking for all the help I can get. I have an LG HDTV that I have never had a problem with since I got it probably about 3 years ago. I just got a mede8er md600x3d media player, and was playing a movie from my WD external hard drive, with an hdmi cable from the media player to the television. About half way through the first movie on the day I hooked up the media player, a horizontal gray line appeared across the top of the television screen. This line appeared on all inputs, even when I unplugged all devices. The line progressively worsened, and became hundreds of gray and black vertical lines, until now when it is basically a totally black screen, except for a small sliver at the top. I've tried a hard reset, but that did not work. Could an external device actually fry a television screen? I am really at a loss, please help.

Try posting this in the DISPLAY area appropriate to your TV. HDTV Technical is for everything BUT the television. See the sticky. Thanks and good luck.

Walking the fine line between jaw-dropping and a plain ol' yawn.
