Green vertical line on Screen

I have noticed that my 42" plasma has a very thin vertical green line approx 3" from the right hand side of the screen. The line stands out more in when the picture is red and disappears when the picture is black. The line is the same whether watching satellite or a DVD. It was working perfectly well until the weekend, I have tried switching the TV off and leaving for a while - but no joy.

Is there anything I should do that I am not doing?

There is nothing more you can do.

I will take it as, that the green line is all the way from top to bottom. In this case the panel needs to be replaced. This is very, very expensive. If tv is out of warranty, it will be better to buy a new tv.

Hello, your tv seems to have a fualty panel, the color green, bars or lines on wide screens is not a good sign, i dont agree that is is finished, the tv internals are still good you can have this tv fixed if you find a replacement screen. a good idea is to search online auctions and surplus sites for a same model tv listed "for repair as is needs service" you can find one for a few hundred dollars. buy the non- functional tv and exchange the needed parts.
a simple remedy you exchange the screen or have a tech do it for you. if you diy remember to check that all voltages are correct. i know it seems difficult and you need to be patient searching. but you can find the model you need and restore your tv to its original state.

hope this helps..

happy holidays

Green vertical line on videocon 42inch plasma tv


Hello Depending how wide the line is their could be two possible causes.
I have two questions for you.
1. How wide is the line.
2. Does it run from top of screen to bottom of screen?
If the line is thin a single strait line then it is possible the PDP has gone Bad (Panel). (Screen). The screen will to be replaced.
If the line is at least 2 or more inches wide then its a buffer board which can be replaced. LG calls this board Hand insert Boards or display driver boards..

42HDS69 42 in. Plasma has several thin green vertical lines in middle of screen


If the set is still in warranty, call for warranty service. If not and you feel comfortable working on the set, carefully open up the back and reseat all of hte cables and connectors. This can be caused by marginal connections inside the set.

Keep us posted on your progress and results.

Vertical lines across my entire screen


My 42" Samsung Plasma HDTV HP-R4252 has a 2" vertical strip of green pixels down the right side of the screen.

My 3 year warranty with Circuit City expires in Nov 2008.. so I hope I'm covered.. can't call until the morning.

Samsung said it might be a logic board problem.. but they want almost $2000 to fix. I might as well buy another TV if Circuit City can't fix it.
