This is my second identical issue with the same model.

I took the 1st one in and exchanged for the current one.

After 4-6 months, same issue.

Thin vertical blue line about 3-4" right from the center. From top to about 5" from the bottom.

Does not matter the source.

Taking down and putting back a 70" TV is not fun.

Any idea?

Thanks so much

oh boy.... same line. I havent had time to read all the posts on here... did you contact sharp? I called the help line and they gave me a number to call for repair> the repair guy said he's pretty sure its the "panel" ?? And that if it is, it won't be fixable???????


My set is JUST 2 years old. 60 inch . Holy hannah...................

Just found out the BLUE LINE IS A PANEL ISSUE and that sharp DOES NOT SELL replacement panels and even if they did it would not be economical to fix it !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Im about to get on the phone with Sharp. Im wondering if this is a far reaching problem they are having...............

Just found a blue line on my screen also. I have an LC 60LE640U model just purchased in October. Is this fixable?

Hi all, Sorry to here about your problem with the line, I would be very mad if that happened to me. My question is how many of you own the LE735u model? After reading these posts, I see that people are talking about other models and maybe not the LE735u (Some posts did not specify model). Have any of you had this problem with the LE735u? "Sharp Aquos LC-70LE735U vertical blue line " is the title of this page but not sure if anyone with this model actually had this problem. Often a page may have post of the next closest finding, if no cases exist in the searched title. The point being, I want this TV set and want to know if it too has had cases of the lines. This model got great reviews but maybe it is not that great if it has this problem. Any info would help.

Hi, Sorry to here about your line problem, that is unacceptable to happen to more than one set per customer. What model do you have?

Well it looks like I just joined the blue line club. I bought this LC-60LE632U on Black Friday 2011 and now a year and a half later this vertical blue line appears left of center. I tried multiple inputs including the built in Netflix app and it won't go away. I decided to search good old avs and turns out I'm not the first person to have this problem. The warranty is only 1 year so I'm completely screwed. It will be years before I can fit another TV into the budget and I was hoping it would last 10+ years like my old Westinghouse. I'm extremely disappointed because I really liked this TV.


I doubt I'll ever buy a Sharp product again because this stupid blue line will be searing my retinas for the next few years until I can save up enough money to replace the set.

It appears to be more than a few unit, many have had this happen. Looks to me like they don't care. I WAS going to get one, good reviews, but not when this many units are doing that. I would be furious if that happened to me, and more so if I found out that it is a wide spread issue and they don't own up.

I also have a 46" aquos 3D, I hope it doesn't happen to that one. Both the 70" and the 46" were a prize from work for great customer service so now that I know it's wide spread I will be working on this. Our company bought a LARGE amount of them and hopefully that will give me leverage. When I called in the rep didn't even mention she knew

I have the Sharp 70" that I bought from Sams on a BF deal in 2011. I took the TV down to paint the wall. it was set flat against a wall (no stress). When I put it back on the wall, all seemed fine. Two days later, I had a 1 pixel thin blue line about 2" from the left border. It fades away at the very top and bottom. It does this on all inputs. On a whim, I pushed on the panel at the top, center, and bottom - and the blue line disappeared!


I'm probably running on borrowed time. Since there hasn't been any activity on this thread for about a month, I'm hoping others have made some progress. I've not called Sharp - and assume my warranty is out.

I am currently having the same issue with the vertical blue line.


I have a Sharp AQUOS LC-40LE550U and I have only had it for a little over a month and only have been using it for about 4 weeks. To top that all off I have only been using it about 3-4 hours OR LESS a day (average).


What would your guys/girls advice be? Is calling Sharp the best bet at this point since it has a 1-year warranty?

Well, looks like by borrowed time has expired. The blue line returned again this week - and while pushing on the screen at a specific point will make it go away - after a few hours it returns.

Anyone else had luck with Sharp? I haven't bothered calling them since the set is pushing 3 years old.

And now, the barely visible blue line has turned into a bright red one. Invisible on white, but glaring red like a laser beam on dark. Before I could argue it was "ignorable". Not any longer.

Anyone else find an alternative to ditching a $2k TV after less than 3 years of service?

Not what I wanted to hear -

Misery loves company - My Sharp TV - LC-60LE835U - 2.5 years old recently got thin vertical line on right side of screen, I have been told that the LCD panel has gone bad and for the cost to repair it, I would be better off buying a new TV. I am beyond upset and would really like Sharp to take care of this issue, either fix it or replace itl

blue line on a Sharp LED 70' TV

I would like to know if any of you guys that have a vertical blue line going all the way from top to bottom. My Question is did any of your lines happen after you move your T.V. I moved a month ago and when I turned off my T.V. the line was not there. but after I moved and turned it on the blue line appeared. Any help would be great cause my insurance company said I should go after he movers and the movers said same. If it is a software issue then I can get it fix or replaced under warranty, Thanks Wayne :mad::mad::mad::mad: and :confused::confused::confused:
