Ok, the tvs old. But been used very sparingly (second tv in home in downstairs so not used much at all). Black bars just started appearing. They do not appear when on the blue "no input" screen, or on a "snowy" channel with no signal.


I have tried with the Coaxial jack and a regular RCA jack, both have the black bars. It seems lighter images such as the sky on video games or a white background commercial they show up a lot more. The bars vary in size from 1" thick to 3" thick and sometimes stay in one spot and sometimes move up and down, mainly in the bottom portion of the screen.


I've searched and searched online and can only find things about burn in, which I know this isn't. The lines go all the way across the screen. When playing a game if I looked at the sky the bar would appear across the sky and if I moved the view back down it would go away.


Thats pretty much all the info I have, anybody have an idea?

First off I would say it sounds as they are 'hum bars', but you stated it wasn't on all inputs. You used terms "Coaxial" and "RCA" which are very vague. Are you referring to a composite input and the RF input as in the sets internal tuner?


Can you post a screen shot?
