Philips Plasma Black Stripe

Our Philips Plasma 42" has just developed a 3" black stripe, right of centre. From the FixYa postings it does not sound good and it does appear to be a common problem.
What can be done?

Around the screen there are ribbons with driver chips on them, these ribbons generally have around 300 connections which are bonded to the glass, when the chips fail on the ribbon there's no drive on screen leaving a black bar. Usually the screen would be replaced by the manufacturer within the warranty period, I have the machine that can re-bond another ribbon which can work on around 80% of the screens and could save you money. You can email me on rajkp67@yahoo.com if you need my address to bring your plasma over.

I have a 42' LG plasma that has now has a 1 1/2 inch verticle stripe on the right side. It used to come and go but now rarely goes away. Any ideas?


I believe that this could be a type of "burn in". If you watch anything with a black stripe on the sides or bottom of the screen often, then this could be the problem. My suggestion is to watch things that have no black side bars for a while (>week) and see if this eliminates the problem.
Good Luck!!

42" Panasonic Plasma - Vertical red stripe 6" from left side


We originally had a red stripe roughly 3" wide running vertically on the ride edge area of our Panasonic 52" Viera plasma tv. It has now been joined by a solid black stripe of the same width running from the top to the bottom. Living in Germany and purchased at local PX long enough ago that the warranty is likely expired. Now what?

I think you have a frame fault on the tv. If you are capable check the picture frame board first. If not find a competant technician. Good luck.

Philips plasma tv vertical black stripe


Hi
If there is no picture behind the stripe and the edges are well-defined, then one of the display driver ICs has failed. Philips displays can be made by several manufacturers - usually Samsung. The ICs are bonded to the flexible ribbon in most cases, and replacement is an expensive specialist job - and in many cases is simply not possible.
A shadow on the picture is much better - usually due to interference.

Hitachi 42EDT41 plasma model-1" black stripe on right side


This is an old post but maybe it will help others. You will have to take the back off of the TV. On the bottom you will see ribbon cables coming from the screen and connecting to 3 PC boards. Take the screws out that holds the cable down. Underneath you will see 4 resistors marked 100. All you have to do is re-solder the resistors and your vertical line will be gone. You need to be good at soldering or you could damage the ribbon. The only ones that you have to re-solder is the ones in line with the lines on the screen.

Ok did this happen the first time u turn on the TV. ? If so u might have a ribbon cable disconnect from the logic or u might have a defective Plasma panel. If u have a defect like your describing the IC's on the panel short out and no longer work causing that section of the screen not to function. Only fix then is replace panel
