Question about NEC PlasmaSync PX-42VM2A Television

1 Answer

Nec plasmasync 4200w 3 vertical lines one yellow two purple

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 a Vizio P42HDe but mine is just red or green and only to the left half of the screen,
    but i can give the frame of the set a light knock and get rid of it
    till the next time. Might be a pixels width or up to 1 inch wide.
    Waiting on a service call. Hope they just replace it, I also havnt been
    able to use the DVI since day two, tv says no signal.

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.

Blue vertical line


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.

Black Bar on screen


You can try to check the connector on the address board on that area, but I'm 99% sure the plasma panel is defective.

NEc plasmasync 42mp2 - dark screen and in the top few pixels show the image


It's either the Y-main or logic board but you would need to do some extensive testing to know for certain which one... It's not the screen..
I would strongly recommend you take it into a shop and have a Tech test it and give you an estimate..

On screen thin yellow and blue vertical lines.


Unfortunately the LCD is going faulty.. one or more of the "Driver" transistors that operates the LCD elements RGB, have faulted ON.. perhaps this link may help fix it. Otherwise :( http://www.wikihow.com/Fix-a-Stuck-Pixel-on-an-LCD-Monitor

Vertical, pencil-thin blue line appears after 10 minutes of viewing (any source)


I would suspect a connection breaking down as the set heats up. A shop will probably have to put the set in a stand to hold it while they check for loose connections or defective components inside. Not a DIY job by any means. If this line went completely through the picture either vertically or horizontally and stayed there then this would have indicated a failure in the Panel itself. A thin Line any where on the screen consisting of one pixel in width is a Panel Failure according to Hitachi.
