This is fairly common. If you don't perform a fix soon, you'll end up with burn lines. Follow this link. Pay particular attention to the soldering part, not the dismantling. A lot of plasmas from the last few years used a LG board made in Korea. The TV in question in this forum is a Hyundai, which is, yep you guessed it, KOREAN. So the pictures of the ribbons are accurate. Don't let someone try to sell you a fix. This site is supposed to be everyone helping everyone else out. SHAME ON YOU DAVE FOR SELLING HERE!

    There are lots of folk here that would be happy to do that same thing for free. No question that Dave may be a nice guy, I just think that if you're going to post a "I have a fix for you" in a free forum, it should be just that. FREE. I'd be happy to walk you through the dismantle and repair of this TV for nothing other than a thank you. People that are offering a pay service belong in the service section of craigslist or their local classifieds. I am sure Dave has spent exhaustive work putting together fantastic repair instructions. But a pay service doesn't belong here.

Axle80, I have one big issue with your comment because sure your right, this site is designed for free of charge help but there's one issue with that. Where can you go and get help to the extent at which Dave explains it. For one, any free help does not usually include a detailed instruction sheet on how to take care of the problem from the second u take off the first bolt to the moment u turn it back on. And to be honest paying for a $80 dollar fix to repair a $1500 dollar TV IF NOT MORE is a bargain. Dave is a great guy, i met him today because i called him about an issue i have with my Toshiba and he has been nothing but helpful. You wont meet another person like that in the next 100 people you call that are willing to walk you through stuff on their time.

Failue of the vertical section, could be the drive, the power to the section or even some discrete componets. Unless you are familiar with electronics , get some help to ceck out on these circuits, could not be major but to get themain culprit will require good probing.

Black screen, high pitched squeal


A set that has only a 1/2 inch bright line through the middle of the picture, from left to right, has a vertical output IC that is not working correctly. If the 1/2 inch line is in the middle but going up and down, then the horizontal yoke circuit has stopped working. These are problems which should be looked at by a qualified tech, but if the set was purchased 6 months ago then it should still be under the manufacturer's warranty.
