Goodmans 42" plasma tv Model NR GTV42P4

Both speakers work on the tv if you swap them over - but will not work on one side when connected. Also tv screen now shows multi coloured vertical stripes, so there is no picture but still have sound - can you advise if tele is repairable - thanks Geoff

    Exactly the same symptoms on mine. I would add that when the Menu button is pressed, there is a noticable change to the stripey appearance, so there is a degree of 'picture' input being fed to the screen, but something is wrong with the data to the screen drive. The screen is fully driven with data across the entire screen, so it is not a failure of the screen drive, I think.

Not sure i can solve this but you could try tapping the bottom of the set's case or back cover to see if its dry jointed. as you said both speakers are working so the fault lies with one of the outputs of the sets amp.if you have a headphone socket check to see if both channel's work . dry joints are quite common. also have had this problem and it turned out to be a faulty scart lead always check the obvious first good luck ..colin

Sylvinia 42" plasma tv sound does not work

If picture is OK, sound should be there. Check its speakers. Check its sound system settings. Check the audio output card. If found faulty, replace it as card basis.

can you tell me the brand and model of the new remote. You already gave the tv model, so the remote details are all I need.

Isee half the screen the other half is black and colour vertical lines.(42) Can that be fixed? How much? This is asecond time that happens.The tv is lg model du-42px12x. Tell me of is worth to fixed or not

FIrst of all this is a plasma set and thus does not have a "convergence" board. This could be as simple as a bad cable connection inside the set or a failed supply for one half of the plasma panel. If the unit is no longer under warranty. try removing the back and reseating all of the cables and connectors. Since the signal levels are extremely small inside, it doesn't take much to cause a problem.

Update this with your results and we'll continue as dictated by the results.
