Okay, I have this 2 year old Westinghouse LVM-42W2 and for the past year and half or so there's been this line down the center. It started off as just a single pixel line which was barely noticeable and now it's grown (but only one side???) into the monster you see today.
- It's not visible on a white screen. It gets more visible as the screen gets darker, until you get to black in which case it's not visible again.
- It's in the exact center of the screen. If you look at it, you'll see that the right side is straight line from top to bottom whereas the left side is wavy and whatnot.
It looks almost like it's 2 panels stuck together and the glue on one side is coming off or something. Somehow it's effecting the backlighting though since if it's bright, even on colors, it's not visible.
Look at the bright blue and dark blue pics for an example.
The upside is that it works perfectly fine as a PC monitor since that's mostly white but it's getting pretty obnoxious during movies, so I'm going to change it out as soon as I decide on a new TV.
(BTW don't let the colors fool you, the camera was adjusting the ISO on the fly, so there really is a major difference between the two blues despite appearances.)
Anyone know if this is fixable by a technician?
