Maxent 42 inch problem

I have a 42 in Maxent Plasma Tv - when you turn it on there is a black verticle line and for example you are on component 1 -you see com on the right side of the screen and ponent 1 on the left side of the screen seperated by a black verticle line - there is also flickering white hoz lines that go from top to bottom of the screen - what would cause this - if you hook the tv up to a signal source you get a picure but it is almost like a double picture with the left and right picture is skewed -

    Blue screen with white, black verticle lines on the right side from top to bottom of the TV.  I just changed the Y-SUS & Buffer to get the video back, and now I have a picture, but the lines are on it now.  I can never just have something perfect.

The TV was made by LG. You should be able to google an LG distributor or try ebay. The 953 is readily available but the 917 may be hard to find. Won't be cheap for new ones, around $350-$400 for both unless you can find used.

SOURCE: maxent plasma tv is showing only vertical lines.

Common problem on these sets are many many bad caps on the digital board. Repair kits are available for these containing the necessary parts if you're savvy with a soldering iron. Otherwise, replacement of the digital board is necessary and you'll have to contact either Maxent or a local repair shop. Tracking down which caps are bad can be difficult even with the right equipment as some tend to check good while in circuit when they are actually bad.

I have a single thin horizontial black line six inches from the bottom of the screen. how can it be fixed.


Hi.

The line is probably in correspondence of the low Y buffer board, located inside the TV and connected to plasma display. In that case the board must be replaced to fix the problem. One of the symptoms of a defective low buffer board is a black line that starts from the bottom of the TV.

Regards.

Vertical black lines appear intermitently


Does the line appear on just one input(cable,hdmi,video1,video2,ect) or on all of them? The reason why I ask is it may be just an issue with one input setting on the television and you may be able to use a different input for a temporary fix of the problem. Plasma telivisions run very hot and it may be overheating. Try using a small mountable fan above the TV pointed into the back heat vents and see if keeping it cooler keeps the issue from happening. These TVs are repairable but usually cost more to repair than what it is worth due to plasma TVs are very in-expensive now.

Panasonic Plasma screen suddenly has a verticle black line


G'Day!

Unfortunately, what you're describing is a repair issue. You won't be able to address the problem with troubleshooting. There is a part inside the TV that needs to be replaced. If you're under warranty, this will cost you nothing. If you're not under warranty the cost will likely be a minimum of $200 parts and labor. However, be warned that the cost could be considerably higher.


I hope I've provided you useful assistance and that this information allows you to make an informed decision as to how to proceed from here. Please be sure to vote on my response. I hope I've earned a good rating from you today.

Please post a comment if you need additional assistance so that I can help you further.

Verticle lines on screen


This is a very easy fix. Your cable box is not grounded correctly. To fix this you need a AC Plug adapter. This will change your TV ac plug from a 3 wire to a 2 wire. This may sound funny, but trust me on this. I have fix a lot of TV in NY doing just this.24001fc.jpg
