Question about Panasonic TH-42PD50U 42 in. Plasma EDTV

1 Answer

Panasonic TC-P42S2 .. Transparent 2 inch wide vertical discoloration on panasonic 42 inch plasma, very left of the screen.

The two inch wide band of discoloration is transparent and hardly noticable on whites and I can't see it when the Picture is black. It becomes very noticable when the screen is red or blue. It's up against the left side of the screen. I unplugged the TV overnight, plugged it back in when morning came around and the discoloration was gone; for about 3 minutes. Then it came back. Sometimes there is a very thin red line on the right of the band. It's becoming annoying.

Fixed mine, myself! Black 3 inch vertical band (stripe) appeared after a cros country move on our PC-T50G10. Occasionally we would see white band with multicolored pixel width stripes. Took the risk of taking off the back to see if I could see anything. Found places on sides and bottoms where plastic like 2" flat cables could be seen. Guesstimated where the band was and found that I could flip down a black cover on one end of the cable. Tried to pull it, gently. Mistake. Realized it wouldn't one out like computer hard drive cables, so I took out the screws holding the plate on the other end (it's only an inch long). That allowed me remove the cable. Took it out, cleared away dust, put t back and closed the black over. It worked! Put the screws back in, back on and... we are happy (although I do have four extra screws!). Just be gentle.

I have a 2" wide vertical dark line in the center of my screen.


Before you go to the dealer, try disconnecting it from the wall for 15 minutes, disconnect all inputs, then plug it back in - do not reconnect any inputs. Turn it on and see if the line is still there. If yes, then off to the store you go knowing its a fault in the guts of the unit. If no, then reconnect the TV input and see. If it reappears then the fault is the signal not the TV.

Wide vertical bands of color through the viewing area. The sound is fine


One of your "X" buffer boards is defective. In Panasonic plasma tv's they are located at the bootom of the set and connect directly to the plasma diplay panel via a thin ribbon cable. The board you want to replace will be directly in line with the discolored vertival line in the picture. The part number is on the circuit board and usualy starts with "tnp..." or "txp..."

42" Panasonic Plasma - Vertical red stripe 6" from left side


We originally had a red stripe roughly 3" wide running vertically on the ride edge area of our Panasonic 52" Viera plasma tv. It has now been joined by a solid black stripe of the same width running from the top to the bottom. Living in Germany and purchased at local PX long enough ago that the warranty is likely expired. Now what?
