Question about Zenith P42W46X 42 in. Plasma EDTV

1 Answer

Screen full of moving colored lines

Unit is about 1.5 years old, bought on e-bay from established seler in NJ, new in box. last week it began with a picture with mutli-colored lines, vertical and horizonial with some snow that move with the motions of the picture but in random paterns. The picture is just lines and distortion. you cannot tell what you are looking at. sound still works fine. All inputs have this problem from sources known to be ok. Have unplugged the set for 24 hours and same problem. Zenith "technical HA HA support"said because it was purchased on e=bay all warranty is void! Even though this seller has a showroom and is a valid Zenith dealer. What might be wrong with the tv???? Help.

I would suspect bad solder connections allowing a ground to "float" It is a common problem with the model P42W24BX which I believe uses similar circuitry as your model. An experienced repair shop should be able to get you fixed up.

It is going to be one of two basic issues:

1. There is a poor connection somewhere in the set--either with a plug or cable or on one of the boards.

2. There is a board that is beginning to fail causing this.

Either would require a shop and may or may not be worth the cause.

Having seen hundreds of these sets all are more prone to flaky problems than the older sets and average life span is 3-5 years.

Shop I work for 80% of them are 2 years old or less.

If problem began shortly after set was moved or relocated I would lean towards a bad connection somewhere.

Hi, Try moving the TV around so that the bars disappear. It could be you have it too close to something thats affecting the screen. You might even move it to a different room. Good luck.

Additional information is required for us to assist. Can you better describe what you mean by "poor image"? Are the colors separated? Is the picture out of focus? Are the colors wrong?

Please describe the picture or post a picture of the screen if you can.

Thanks,
Dan

Vertical lines on my 40 inch lcd mitsubishi hdtv 1080


Similar problem with an eleven and a half month old LT-40148. Approx. 1 inch vertical banding line on left side of screen on all inputs. After about two weeks, same problem on the right side of the screen.

Fortunately this occurred two weeks prior to the one year warranty expiring.

Called Mits customer service and they referred me to an authorized service center who I happened to have dealt with before.

They picked up the set. The front panel (LCD screen ) had to be replaced. Set was gone for two weeks as parts were not in stock. There was no charge. I hope this screen last more than a year.
