Question about NEC PlasmaSync PX-42VM2A Television

Open Question

Nec plasmasync px-42m2a

This unit has 3 vertical lines -- which appear to be a pixel in width -- stretch from the bottom of the screen half way up. Two of the lines are on the left side of the screen and purple/magenta in color. The third line is yellow and lies on the right side of the screen. Also, the screen was scratched. Any suggestions for smoothing out the scratch or reasons for the vertical lines would be greatly appreciated.

    I have a similar problem with my Samsung 50" plasma. A teal colored line that runs vertical halfway up the screen. It is one pixel in width. Does anyone know if this can be fixed?

Sorry to tell you, it is not a scratch, but a bad cable connection from the driver IC's, connecting up the plasma screen to the drive board, or the drive IC for that section of the screen is defective. It is not a repair a user can do as there are no user replaceable parts inside this set. Your going to have to call NEC or an experienced Plasma repair shop.

Why does my TV show discolored vertical bands and can I fix it at home?


The T-con board controls the picture elements on the screen. Usually replacing this board will solve the problem. If you can touch the screen and the lines disappear and later reappear, that says the screen itself is defective. The only fix is to replace the entire screen.

The text along the sides of the tv screen are not completely in view


you need to change the 'zoom' on the tv by the remote.
Normal mode frames the 4:3 video to the 16:9 picture area by displaying it in its original aspect ratio, with vertical gray or black bars on both sides of the screen. The disadvantage of this method is the fact that the image is small by virtue of not using the entire width of the screen. This is also known as the 4:3 mode.
Full mode Full mode horizontally stretches the 4:3 video evenly across the entire width of the screen. This is the proper mode to display anamorphic video. If used for standard aspect ratio video, everything on the screen will appear wider than normal. Contrast this with anamorphic video displayed without processing on a 4:3 display, in which people on the screen will appear taller than normal. This is also known as the 16:9 mode.
Zoom mode Zoom mode evenly stretches the picture both horizontally and vertically, until the picture fills the entire width of the screen. This crops out the top and bottom of the picture. This mode is used for letterboxed and open matte video.
14:9 mode Main article: 14:9
In 14:9 mode, the picture is magnified more than in Normal mode, but less than in Zoom mode, while retaining the original aspect ratio.
Wide Zoom mode Wide Zoom mode, also called Just mode, Horizon, or Smart Stretch, progressively stretches the picture horizontally, less in the middle and more on the edges. This allows normal aspect ratio video to be displayed across the entire width of the screen, with minimal cropping, and with much less of the unpleasing visual stretching effect of Full mode.

Monitor displays half screen sometimes and goes back to full screen later. Some days you get the full screen but today it is half screen one time and then full screen another time. It finally quit...


The monitor have problem in vertical section of the board.Maybe the vertical output or any parts around the vertical ic is loose connection circuit,what we called,cold solder so its better to resolder the board at the vertical section.

Black line half way down the center of the screen,about 1.5 inche


There's a 'data control' and/or 'address' problem that's developed. Pixels depend on voltage, control, and data coming too their designated address.

A digital circuit feature called a 'DATA_ADDRESS_ BUS" are responsible for 3 criteria: Delivering voltage, control, and data to each pixel in less than a second.

1) If voltage fails the pixels don't light up. They appear black in color (their 'off 'state)....numerous pixels that don't light up look like a black line. But their actually individual pixels with no voltage.

2) If control fails then all pixels are white in color (their 'on' state). Without control the pixels can't adjust properly to high or low 'state', meaning brightness and dimness. This looks like a white line vertically on the screen.

3) If data fails then the pixels can't adjust to the proper color at the proper time.
This appears as a line that changes color out of sync with the entire picture.


Have a technician look at the pixel address registry circuits. As well as control and linear circuits....the problem is somewhere in there!

My Ibm Laptop r51 has a vertical lines on the screen


The lines appearing on your LCD means it has a defect on the screen.

There are 3 types of pixel defect
1) dead pixel - pixel is always off
2) stuck pixel - pixel is always on
3) hot pixel - pixel is on but in red, green, blue or yellow, can also be a light black color

You can try to fix stuck or hot pixels but dead is dead.
1st method, flashing different colors rapidly:
JSScreenfix.com has a great tool. This is their free java applet or you can download it below.

2nd method, applying pressure to pixel:
Damp paper towel, Small stylus or dull pencil.

3rd method, tapping the pixel:
Pen with cover on or another small, blunt object.


If your laptop is still under warranty, get it replaced. If not you are looking at the most expensive part in a laptop to get replaced. (LCD screens on laptop is roughly equivalent to 40-60% of the total laptop cost

Please rate this if it this helps.
