Question about Televison & Video
I have a HP 50" Plasma Model #CPTOH-0603 PL5060N50 TV Picture has a white line about 5" wide in the middle of the tv and then it goes off then the whole screen comes on fully lite with colored snowy interference then goes off and will not come back on till you mash the on button. Does this repeatedly.
This is known problem with PDP displays. That means: one of X-buffers has bad connection to the PDP(plasma display). Or, in some cases, depend on PDP type, it could be panel itself at fault. You need to open your set carefully and get an access to X-buffers. Usually, at the very bottom of PDP, covered with aluminum heat sinks. By turning set on, while face down, start tapping slightly with isolated handle of medium size screwdriver. Observe, when line(s) vanished. That's where connection(ribbon cable) between PDP and X-buffer is compromised.
In some PDPs, those integrated into panel itself and nothing you can do, except to live with that or replace panel. Hope, you end up just reconnecting ribbons. Anyway, you must have very good technician background to do so.
