Hitachi 42HDS69 42 in. Plasma with red lines

I own a Hitachi 42HDS69 42 inch Plasma. Twice now in the past week a 1" thick set of red lines has appeared towards the left side of the tv. They came on and went away within 10 seconds each time. Just wondering if their was something i could do to fix this problem or if there is no hope.... thanks

I think you have dry solder joints on the tv. Either on the chroma board, the vertical scan board, the line output board, or on the focus board. If you are going to do this yourself please take all necessary precautions against electric shock and discharge all capacitors that you can as a stray spark from one can cause damage to your tv and yourself. If you are not able to do this find a competant technician. Good luck.

This will be a block defect caused either by one of the flat flexible connectors to the screen giving a poor contact or a fault within the screen itself, which result in a replacement screen required

Thin vertical line on plasma, 4 inches from left hand side


According to what i could find, there is no way to actually SOLVE the problem, this is what i did find; The plasma display panel is lighting the phosphors by the discharge of internal radiation. Depending on the screen contents, in rare cases this may cause vertical stripes to appear because of failure to light. Please note that this is not a malfunction.

Black lines on plasma


The matrix controler or the matrix drive area is failing. The fix is to change the proper circuit boards, and then do the factory setup to match the board is necessary. In the worse case, it may be the display screen itself that has a failure occuring.

You will have to bring the set for factory service to have the work done. If the set is out of warranty, it may be expensive to service.
