I had the same problem and I fixed it on my LG plasma

This how I done it.

Take the back plate off
At the bottom you should see a metal solid plate, behind that plate is the ribbon connectors for the vertical picture.
Be carful not to brake them.
Look for any that may not be fully connected.
My one looked like they were all connected but actually the last one was a out just a little.
Try pulling them all out and reconnecting them.

Worked for me.
Good luck

With half of the screen working, and with a Plasma tv. I will look at the driver board as being bad. Take the back cover off, the driver pcb will be at the top or bottom of the set. They are only about 2 inches tall and will cover most of the lenth of the set (2 boards that run end to end). The board that is on the side of the tv that is bad is the bad board. Replace that board or have a tech replace it.

I have a 42' LG plasma that has now has a 1 1/2 inch verticle stripe on the right side. It used to come and go but now rarely goes away. Any ideas?


I believe that this could be a type of "burn in". If you watch anything with a black stripe on the sides or bottom of the screen often, then this could be the problem. My suggestion is to watch things that have no black side bars for a while (>week) and see if this eliminates the problem.
Good Luck!!

It sounds like there is a problem with the tuner inside the television. Your best bet is to send it in for service.

Half screen activated only


When only a half screen is produced, it is usually a upper or lower buffer board, if the top half is blank then it is the upper buffer, and of course if it's the bottom half then it's the bottom buffer board
