Question about JVC GD-V4210PZW 42 in. Plasma Television
The display on this unit has a problem. The display is split into two halfs. The split occurs horizontally. Both halves display a complete series of vertical lines that completely cover the screen, however, they do not mirror one another. The colors of the lines change to track the program that is playing. The audio is fine. The unit recently snapped out of it for about about 5 minutes and then returned. I gave it a good slap on the back and the unit corrected itself for a while but has since returned to its problem state. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
In some cases, there are minor defects in some parts of the screen. Points that do not light, points with
brightness different from that of the periphery, or points with color different from that of the periphery.
Some pixels will always be on or always off. Please note that this is not a malfunction. So what this says is that it's not the Plasma Cell problem, its more like a bad board inside. You will need more info like schematic and find out which area the bad part is in.

horizontal line is an idication of a bad board known as a x driver board. Their may be a slight possiblitliy it can be a small ribbion cable that runs from the driver board to the plasma panel. Another possiblility it can be a bad panel... but from the symptoms you describe i would first have to look at that driver board. and the sympton that getting worse makes me lean toward a bad ribbion cable.. if that could be reseated....well that the first thing as a technician i would try. Carefull Television generate dangerous voltages.

Sorry, this has no easy fix. The good news is you do not need an LCD Panel. The bad news is the Video Processor has a problem.
This TV has x3 Boards. The one you should replace first is the one in the middle. If this doesn't fix it, try the one on the right. The Part #s are on the Boards if you wanna try ebay.
