Question about Pioneer PureVision PDP-V401 40 in. Plasma Television

1 Answer

PDP-V401 Plasma My 1998 plasma suddenly developed an entire row of black pixles in Video, i switch to RBG and it is also there. about 30 minutes after the screen went entirely white with the black line in the same place. Has my plasma gone dead? I would think that by dying it would go entirely black, or the row of black pixels would just increase. What should I do?

Re: PDP-V401 Plasma

I am amazed it lasted that long. It could well be in the panel and would be expensive to fix. I think you would be better served at checking out a 40-42" LCD replacement. They've come a long way since yours was made.

Broken screen

if it is limited to external glass the glass can be ordered separately but if there is internal crack on pdp itself would have to replace pdp. from my experience generally if it limited to crack on external glass there still should be picture so there may be additional damage to plasma display itself

Problem with LG 42 inch plasma

If you notice these dots when you use Video or HDMI inputs, then you need to do something to get rid of them.

Open the back cover, try to reduce the Vs voltage 5-10V below its spec value. Vs is from Power Supply Board and its spec value was printed on the back of PDP panel. If your tv is under warranty, just drop it to the warranty depot shop.

Black verticle line

You most likely have a bad address board or the conntection is dirty between the address board and the PD (Plasma Display Panel). This is not a do it yourself repair as any damage to the cables to the PDP would require a PDP replacement.
