Finally installed my Vizio 60" Black Friday walmart special , but after turning it on i noticed a grouping of lines a little more then halfway down the screen running horizontally. I tried almost everything. Unplugging, holding the off button, turning back on trick.....trying different inputs. No matter what the lines remain. Any suggestions. Or ideas? Oh yeah...and no its not smudges or anything on the screen itself , lol.

Wow, coincidence. My sister also got in on that deal and yesterday I helped her get it set up. In our case, the TV worked fine.

Have you tried different cables? What about using the same cable on different sources such as a cable box or blu-ray player? Do the lines appear if you are using any of the TVs apps like Netflix or Amazon?


As far as I'm concerned, it's a damned shame that a field as potentially dynamic and vital as journalism should be overrun with dullards, bums, and hacks, hag-ridden with myopia, apathy, and complacence, and generally stuck in a bog of stagnant mediocrity. - Hunter S.
