Horizontal Black Line on Plasma Screen

On my Panasonic TH50PX77U, there is a horizontal black line through the middle of the screen. It shows up on every channel and input. If anyone could please tell me what the problem is, I would really appreciate it.

Thanks in advance. Samsung LNT4661F vertical line growing over time down screen, another is starting.  I can see the line when the TV is off, too.  It just appeared one day, and has been slowly getting longer.  I only have a few weeks left on my warranty.  Repair person said it was external damage and our fault.  I don't think that was the case.  HELP, PLEASE!

    If the line on my screen is not electronic failure, what is it? There is no physical marking of any kind. No dimple, scratch, indentation - nothing. How can a $1600 piece of equipment be damaged beyond repair without even knowing that it happened? Can you help me understand?

    This is a vertical line, and two more are starting in a different portion of the screen. They grow over time.

On the Panasonic if you can open and repair problem you can be helped. If not call a repair center. On the Samsung I'm afraid the Repair guy is right. If you can see the line with Unit turned off then it is not electronic failure.

Sorry I did not have good news for you. Let me know about the Panasonic Plasma. Could be dirty contacts from the x board to the display.

I have a 2" black line at the top of the tv. And also smaller black lines across the middle of the tv.


Dear Jeff,
It seems like the Horizontal IC in your TV is dying. This and the Vertical IC is responsible for displaying images on your TV. (Look at your TV through your Phone Camera and you will see upward scrolling lines.This is the Horizontal IC in action.)
I would strongly advise you to get your TV repaired immediately.

My Panasonic plasma TV has suddenly developed a one pixel thick horizontal black line across the screen. It is not there when the TV is switched off.


it'll not be there when tv off because dead pixels do only show when back light of screen comes on, anyway if you still have a warranty then ask for them to check it out as it sounds like you need a new screen there mate

My plasma has a thin black horizontal line approximately 4inches from the top and extend across the screen.


You can either have a bad Y-Upper buffer board, or dirty contacts on the plug associated with the horizontal line. Best to have a service company look at it.
