Question about Philips 42FD9932 42 in. Plasma Television

1 Answer

Vertical black line approx 3" in centre of screen with white line through centre.

I am looking for any advice on what the problem could be with my philips plasma tv. I have had it approx 3 years and now i am experiencing a thick black line running through the middle of the screen with a white/red/green line running through that. I would appreciate any ideas to what could be causing this and any advice on what it may cost to repair? If its expensive to repair should i just forget about it? The tv cost over £4000 when i bought it. The model I have is actually 42fd9945/01, but this is my fist time using the site and could not work out how to ask specifically about this model. Any help much appreciated!!!

You will need a new panel wich will cost you more than the tv itself.

A vertical line could indicate a faulty lower scan (long skinny boards along the bottom of the set) board, a faulty lower scan connection to the screen or a bad screen altogether!

Vertical black lines. But they are not solid. lg plasma 42pc3dv

This could be a poor connection with the LVDS cable which runs from the main video processing board to the screen, or a fault within the video processor on the main board. Worst case scenario is it could be a fault with the screen itself.

Permanent horizontal line approx. 4" from top of screen

if this line is in the picture, that is possible burn in screen. if you have a black bar at the top or faint white lines that come down from top this is caused by defective filters in vertical circuit or bad vertical output. mch
