Fault in Plasma display screen

I have an intermittent vertical black bar appearing from top to bottom on my LG plasma TV. It is 1 to 2 inches wide and is on more often than off. Does anyone know of this problem?

    I have the same problem with a 3-4 year old LG. Strip is approx 15 inches from the right hand side and appears intermittently. Sometimes at start is ok but after a few minutes the black bar appears and can last for up to 1-2 hours before disappearing and then working satisfactorily. LG advise probably require panel replacement which of course is unecomonical. Will be taken to LG recommended repairer for report.

A black line running verticall down the middle of


There is no invertor board on a plasma tv. The fault is the X address buffer board. This is located on the bottom of the screen and runs horizontally the whole width of the screen. If you remove the heatsink plate that covers the x address boards and you need to look at the screen ribbon at the same position as where the bar is (in the middle).Vary gently lift the Xbuffer ribbon lock and gently take out the ribbon.Clean the contacts very carefully with a fibre pen or an electrical cleaning fluid.Insert ribbon back and heatsink and check.Here is a picture of the board and ribbon

a 1 inch bar is associates with 1 ribbon fault. So if the bar was 3 inches in from the left of the screen, the faulty ribbon will be 3 inches in from the right working from behind the TV. If cleaning dont cure the fault, then the Buffer IC will be blown and order a new centre buffer board (you can buy off Ebay)

Green vertical line on videocon 42inch plasma tv


Hello Depending how wide the line is their could be two possible causes.
I have two questions for you.
1. How wide is the line.
2. Does it run from top of screen to bottom of screen?
If the line is thin a single strait line then it is possible the PDP has gone Bad (Panel). (Screen). The screen will to be replaced.
If the line is at least 2 or more inches wide then its a buffer board which can be replaced. LG calls this board Hand insert Boards or display driver boards..

Intermittant vertical black bars on 42HP84


there is a good chance that I can solve your problem, although for me and others this problem usually shows itself as black bars that go from top to bottom, not just half way.  go to the following link and read the entire thread, it is very good info.  I have done this and it worked perfectly on a gateway plasma, but it also works on numerous others.  there is a guy on ebay that sells a fix for $80, and it appears to be exactly what i did.
