Sorry to say that the cable that you tore is not replaceable it connects directly into the panel. The fix is to order a new panel and move all the boards from the old one over to the new after installing it.

Why does my samsung plasma tv have vertical lines on the screen

In most of the case is the data buffer located on the lower bottom of the Plasma panel is damaged duo to defective buffer IC, or it was damaged by leaky liquid dripped to it. Some older panels you may change the buffer board, but newer panel, the buffer board is directly soldered to the panel by a few flat flex cable, you can not change it.

How to fix Black Horizontal Line on Samsung Plasma TV (PN60F8500)

It is possible that the buffer board will fix your problem, but try removing, cleaning and reseating the flex cables between the buffers and the panel first. All it takes is a little bit of dirt or oxidation to open a connection and cause a line-out condition. Use a lint free cloth and a little bit of alcohol to clean them. Make sure to fully insert the cables and center them perfectly in the connectors or you will have even more lines. If the original line is still there after cleaning, then try replacing the board. Buy a board from a reputable dealer that will guarantee no problems with the board. If you still have the line even after changing the board, then the plasma panel has failed and the only fix is to replace the panel.
Always let the tv set for an hour unplugged before attempting any repair work. There are dangerously high voltages in plasma tvs that can cause severe shocks or even *****.

I have a Vizio P50HDTV20A. I came back from a comercial break to discover a black screen with sound. Checked all cord connections, unplugged cable until tv was cool to touch. Still same problem, sound but...

My guess from this little information is the buffer boards are bad. The Y Buffers... (3 boards, main, lower, and upper should be checked). The main buffer could just be out, but usually when we replace one, we replace all three. If you are tech savvy and are going to try to fix this yourself, I would start there. Here is a pic of the Y main.. Part # LJ92-01399A . 086lj9201399a.jpgthe Y lower and Y upper are connected to this.. Usually on the left side of the TV (from the back).

There is a fuse on this board, so it could have blown, but more likely, it's time to be replaced.

The Upper and Lower Y Buffers are part #'s LJ41-05121A and LJ41-05122A. I recently replaced mine on my Philips Plasma and it's been working fine since!
Good Luck!

Could be power board. Check for swollen capacitors . If ok next check buffer boards for burnt ic. With set unplugged unplug power board from sustain boards. Plug back in and see if it turns on. Unplug again and disconnect buffer boards from sus board plug power supply back into sus to see if it powers on. If it does then buffer boards bad. Isolate upper and lower to Determine which one is bad. Just always remember to disconnect power board from sus boards when disconnecting panel to buffers. Power supply stores a lot of energy and will burn these connectors while reconnecting them.

Picture problem

You need to replace the Ymain and the buffers. This is a very common problem with this set, and its magnavox and samsung counterparts. Look throught the other solved postings for a detailed description of how to dismantle and replace. Plan on spending at least $200 on this repair. Likely a bit more.

42" Sanyo HD Plasma TV (Model DP42746)

Not at all crazy! The Samsung/Akai lines seem to have numerous problems with their Y and Z sustain boards and upper/lower Y driver boards (aka buffers). That and power supplies are generally the largest percentage of the problems in those units. That said, I'm a bit confused looking at the p/n you referenced. I don't see that as being a Samsung number belonging to a Y-sus board. Usually they start with BPxx-xxxxxx..
Lastly, while you might have every ability to replace the Y-sus board if the buffers are bad and you don't replace them you could simply burn up the sustain board when you power it up... Installing the buffers is a bit more complex than the sustain board so be really careful there...\
Good Luck

We have samsung 50 inch plasma tv, we have only half a screen

I have a Phillips 50 inch Plasma. About two months out of warranty the top half of the screen would go black. Sometimes when we tapped on the back behind the upper right hand corner the picture would return. I did some research online and found that there is a Main Y sustain board (much like a mother board in a computer) and connected to that board is a upper Y Buffer board and a Lower Y buffer board. According to my research these boards seem to be the source of the problem. I am assuming that the upper buffer controls the top half of my screen and the lower controls the bottom. I removed the back of my TV (about 50 small screws) and searched for these parts by part number. Surprisingly all of the parts in my Phillips are made by Samsung. I found the parts on ebay at I decided to try replacing the upper Y buffer first. I ordered it from shopjimmy for about 100.00. When I received the part I started to remove my upper Y buffer and realized that the new part was slightly different. The part number was the same but the REV. number was slightly different. The new part was missing a small white connector that connects the upper buffer to the lower buffer. I sent it back for an exchange for the right part with no problem. Ok so here is the interesting piece of this little adventure. When I started to remove my upper Y buffer I removed the screws and started to pull on it to loosen it. When I noticed that I had the wrong part I pushed it back into place and put the screws back . My TV has worked perfectly since I did that, with my original part. It has only been about two months, but if you are in the same situation it might be worth a try.
