I think it's more like this: <br><img src="https://i.imgur.com/4yB5uaX.jpg" border="0" /> <br> <br>Sony is dodging the "exact" problem, they only say, "...bad ribbons, ...bad panel...." There was defect but they don't pin it down to the exact defect. I think they are staying lawsuit safe with political lingo. I have my TV apart and oriented the panel behind the back and plugged everything in and placed an aquarium light behind the panel and turned it on. I still see the lines, I pressed on the tabs, absolutely no change. I think what's called something like the "Y control board" is located on the bottom of this TV. I think they did that to widen the edge of the TV display, don't really know. There are two or three solid lines with no flickering, and on either side of the line there are dimmer lines, maybe 20 or 30 on each side of the center darker line. I saw a vid of a guy apparently cutting the bottom left tab to get rid of the lines on a different model Sony, but I can't understand the speech in the vid, it's this one here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xoL9npE6USU Does anybody here understand what the guy with the knife is doing? I'm desperate so I may try whatever it is the guy did in the vid. I don't "have" to do this, it's just bothering me, that's all haha, It would be a nice feeling just to fix it, I have a curious nature. Here is my project TV in an awkward pose, I oriented the panel in back of the rest as if it's in front and put an aquarium light in back to see the lines. <br><img src="https://i.imgur.com/1A8SXJc.jpg" border="0" /> <br> <br><img src="https://i.imgur.com/bPa9gbJ.jpg" border="0" /> <br> <br>

My picture links work when I click on "preview post", then when I post, odd characters are added to the link and so they don't work.
