Zenith P42W34P Plasma Display Panel

I noticed that you had given some good advice regarding several plasma screen televisions with a similar problem, so I thought I'd consult you.

I have a Zenith P42W34P Plasma Display Panel (EDTV Ready) that displays black vertical lines, always fixed position, throughout most of the screen. There are also a few sparkles that display on the screen (like off-air carbon brush noise). Functions on the television work fine otherwise (but you can't see much since most of the screen is obliterated with black vertical lines. Sometimes, screen graphics will cause multi-colored vertical lines to appear adjacent to the dark areas.

Will the patient live?

I HAVE THREE BLACK LINES AND A YELLOW VERTICAL LINE DOWN THE CENTRE OF MY SAMSUNG 50" PLASMA TV. ONLY 10 MONTHS OLD! WHAT CAN I DO?


The TV should be still under warranty. Most of the flat panel TVs come with a one year warranty from the manufacture. I wouldn't mess with the to void the warranty.
The problem most likely is the buffer/scan boards on the bottom connected to the screen. It controls the vertical image on the screen. The other possibility is the plasma display panel is bad.
Go the warranty route first. This may get expensive to fix.

Sears has a 42" zenith plasma for $449. Is this a good buy or does this tv have problem history?


In my Professional opinion of which I repair these all day long, NO Plasma 3-4 years old is worth that amount of money. The first time it goes down you "will" put it to rest....Guaranteed!
Please don't do it!

You may need a new plasma cell. You are best calling in a qualified repair tech to handle any repairs to a plasma unit as the plasma units can be very exspensive if you were to damage the cell structure.
