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