Hitachi 42HDS69 Blue Vertical Lines

My 42HDS69 42 in. Hitachi plasma has several thin blue vertical lines running down the middle of the screen. The lines appear after the tv has been on for awhile and disappear and reappear as I continue to view. Any idea how and if I can fix this?


Please advice step by step, will be very helpful..

    I have the same problem.

    I called Hitachi, and they authorized free parts for the repair, but I have to pay for labor. How much can I expect??

I think that you have dry solder joints on either the vertical scan board, the focus board, the line output stage, or the chroma panel. Hope this helps.

If the set is still in warranty, call for warranty service. If not and you feel comfortable working on the set, carefully open up the back and reseat all of hte cables and connectors. This can be caused by marginal connections inside the set.

Keep us posted on your progress and results.

Vertical, pencil-thin blue line appears after 10 minutes of viewing (any source)


I would suspect a connection breaking down as the set heats up. A shop will probably have to put the set in a stand to hold it while they check for loose connections or defective components inside. Not a DIY job by any means. If this line went completely through the picture either vertically or horizontally and stayed there then this would have indicated a failure in the Panel itself. A thin Line any where on the screen consisting of one pixel in width is a Panel Failure according to Hitachi.
