SOURCE: large black line top to bottom

The plasma display screen is made of a matrix of elements connected to cables along the side and top. On your unit, some of these many, tiny connections are making contact intermittantly thus losing the elements in that area. These contacts are held in place with just pressure and if that is disturbed, you lose that line of elements. Try squeezing the cabinet of the TV on the outside at the top in the area of the loss and see if that makes a difference. May have to go inside and see if the contact assembly is disturbed or warped or something.

You have a burn in problem from watching widescreen movies.If you have access to a signal generator or tv setup disc run a perfectly white screen on the plasma for about 30 min.This should help even out the pixels on the display.

SOURCE: Black Line on Samsung TV Model # HPR-4252

This is a screen address failure from part of the matrix addressing. This can be caused by fair number of types of faults to cause a missing part of the addressing. You will not be able to fix this yourself.

Find out who the authorised local Samsung service is for your area. They will be able to give you an estimate.

Hi: We had this problem under warranty, and tech installed the following to solve it: Parts BN96-02033A, BN96-02034A and BN96-02216A. This solved the problem for 2 years. I now have the upper half going black now and then for 2 to 3 seconds. I am ordering these parts from www.partstore.com and will just plug them in. Better than a new tv.

Samsung TSL2793HF - Slight Right Side Pincushion and Horz Line Bottom to Top Until the TV Warms up


Yes, this is rare but I have seen it before--not fixable if it is what I think it is----It is what is called a Dome effect---the shadow mask in the picture tube is actually contracting and or expanding depending on temperature---

Directly behind the phosphor coating (the stripes that you see on the screen) is a metal screen--the holes or perforations in it line up with the stripes on the phosphor screen.

Some masks either have a material or a defect causing the dome effect----Not likely to be anything else---a Pin amp problem will not usually act the way you describe but a shadow mask inside the picture tube will act exactly that way.

There are at least two issues here. First you have bad buffer boards. Second Very possibly a bad X-Main bd and P-Logic bds. Have a trained Samsung tech troubleshoot the set.

3inches black line


Even though we are at a level of technology where most things can be addressed by a button on a remote or through a menu there still comes the time when we need to think back when we used to adjust TVs manually. It sounds like this is an analog TV and it is possible there are pots or potentiometers on the rear of the TV at the bottom. If you have children, they love to turn things and it may just be if they are there they need to be set to default. Typically a bad tube will give different symptoms, however, depending on the age of the TV there are some that have circuit boards that will effect the display on a good tube. Not to many symptoms given on this one other than what you describe as "the problem"

Black vertical line 3inches in from the left on my fujitsu PDS4233W-H plasma screen


If the line is all the way from top to bottom, it could be your upper and lower buffer boards or your plasma display unit is bad. I suggest you contact a servicer for your brand.
