Question about Hitachi CMP4121HDU 42 in. Plasma Television

2 Answers

3 Inch block on right side top to bottom.

My plasma was dropped and from then on there has been a 3 inch block top to bottom on the right hand side. The TV still works fine on the rest of the screen, it's just that section where all there is this block of coloured lines which some times go white. It looks like there are lots of thin lines up and down. If worst comes to worst I will just have to watch on reduced size.

I have a LG 42PG20D with a one inch brite white stripe, going from top to bottom about 3/4 along the screen on the right side

That vertical stripe is not fixable in plasma TVs.
Well, easily 99% of them.
The reason is that what goes bad is actually embedded in the display itself and not subject to servicing or replacement.
1% , possibly less, of the plasma TVs out there have that part outside of the display and as such subject to replacement.
Sorry for the new and please do not kill the messenger!

Vertical Black line 3 inch width on Plasma Samsung 42C96HD after 2 months of use

I also have the same problem I phoned Samsung today to explain the tv was only 14 months old, they didn't wanna no because it was out of warrenty by 2 months. I am getting a black solid line down the left hand side of the screen. I ended up phoning Dixons were we bought it from, they have told me to get an independent engineers report done & send the report to them within 14 days. Dixon told me it was a known problem with Samsungs. They said they will fix it free of charge if they can if not they will send vouchers to the same value of the television. So beware stay clear of Samsungs.

1inch line from top to bottom

The black line indicates that either the flex cable that connects the panel to the buffer board has come loose or the panel is bad. Try to reseat the connector located inline with the symptom seen on the screen, if it's loose or inserted crooked, the panel will show this problem. Good luck. Joe Weibel
