    Same problem but Samsung Plasma. I read somewhere that it may be caused by the cable box or the game console using composite connectors. I also read if you use the HDMI connectors it solves the problem.

Where can i obtain a lamp for the hp plasma tv model#pl4260n


Sorry, your plasma does not take a lamp.

"Plasma flat screen technology consists of hundreds of thousands of individual pixel cells, which allow electric pulses (stemming from electrodes) to excite rare natural gases-usually xenon and neon-causing them to glow and produce light. This light illuminates the proper balance of red, green, or blue phosphors contained in each cell to display the proper color sequence from the light. Each pixel cell is essentially an individual microscopic florescent light bulb, receiving instruction from software contained on the rear electrostatic silicon board. Look very closely at a plasma TV and you can actually see the individual pixel cell coloration of red, green, and blue bars. You can also see the black ribs which separate each."

you should call the cable company (if you have regular cable) and supposedly they are aware of this type of problem and can install a filter at the main cable in box and hopefully this will work for you

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.

BLACK BAR


I had the same problem and HP has been very helpful, try calling this number 877-917-4380 ext. 79 and be firm tell them this needs to be fixed. They are sending my second replacement part and said they will keep sending parts till it works, this tv is almost 3 years old.

Just to update this issue, HP has now agreed to replace my plasma free of charge, they dont know how to fix it and after a couple of tries they gave up and I'll get my new one next Friday. For all of those trying , keep trying and don't give up, don't take no for an answer. Comment posted on Feb 04, 2009Just an Update here, My new plasma arrived on Monday free of charge, no shipping, no money at all, works like it did when new. Call HP with the number listed and let them have a piece of your mind, you will get results.
