4200 Dell Plasma Black Line

I have a 3 year old 4200C Dell that just developed a 1.5 inch black line beginning in the lower right and traveling up approximately 14 inches towards the center. Has anyone else expierenced a similar problem? Any potential fixes? Rumor has it Dell wont be any help and I cant locate a local shop that will touch the set.

Had the same problem.  Was quoted $800 to fix.  Searched the internet for 6 months and found this thread on avforums.com

Read through all the posts.  Very simple fix, but you have to have some mechanical inclinations or you can cause more problems than you started with.  I was up to 5 of the black lines, but decided to attempt the soldering these guys did and fixed it all for the cost of a soldering iron!

Depending on where exactly the line is, its most probably a bad logic buffer board, if its in the middle then its your F board. Its really not hard at all to fix it yourself, will be more than happy to help any of you guys.
take care

Found a professional service tech who fixed my problem over the phone. Hire with confidence at a fraction of the cost you been quoted. He guaranteed his work and will ensure problem is resolved. Contact Dave at 503-432-9904. He has several postings on this site. My TV is still working fine.

Regards,
Paul

Panasonic TH-50PZ77U 1 1/4" inch vertical line


This problem is usually the ribbon cable connection at the top of the stripe. Reseat the cable first. The other possibility is the panel itself, but that is rare.
Keep us posted.
