SOURCE: horizontal lines on start up

I get the exact same issue, exepct now it never clears up. I have tried to find someone to come look at it but no one does "house calls" anymore and everyone I call makes it sound so easy to just toss this beast in a car and bring it in. One of the repair techs said the issue sounded like the board had been zapped by a lighting surge...but of course there was no way to be sure unless I brought the set in.

Get the professional, although this won't be an expensive fix... You likely have one or more caps in the vertical circuit that are going bad... A cap acts like a battery in a circuit taking on voltage and releasing it at an even rate. When they go bad their ESR (equivilent series resistance) rises and the cap takes longer to reach it's op temp and work properly...
A tech with an ESR meter will easily find and repair this one... But you'll need to take it in to save the pickup/delivery charges.
Good Luck!

Make sure that there is actualy power going to the AC power source where the TV is plugged in. You can re-set the TV by disconnecting the power for about 10 seconds and then connecting it back again. If the set still does not start it will require service.

If the set is dead it is most likely the main power supply board that failed. The service tech would replace the power supply and also investigate to find the cause of the failure. Sometimes another board could have a failure and cause the power supply to be damaged.

If the set will not start up, it will require shop service. You can call Panasonic tech support to find out the authorised service rep for your area. Check to see if the set is still under warranty. If not, it will be expensive to service.

It sounds that the main power supply regulator board has the fault. Replace all the large electrolytic capacitors on that circuit board, or replace it with a new board as card basis.

Samsung plasma picture is now fuzzy and has a horizontal line running through the center of the screen. the TV is less than a year old. What could this be?


Check all your cable and antenna hook ups for any issues. Good thing it is under a year old because you still have factory warranty on this and if you don't find any issues with your hook ups there is probably a bad board on the set and it needs replaced which need to be done under warrranty, if you attempt this yourself you will void any warranty you have. Plazma Tv's have logic buffer boards that control the X and Y axis. I believe one of these is failing

Horizontal lines across screen picture going fuzzy in and out and then no picture at all


A horizontal line that rolls from the bottom to the top of the tv could be a Hum Bar. This is from a bad ground either for the house electric system or for the cable system. By code, these grounds are supposed to be connected (bonded) together. In other words, the electrical interference is going through your tv instead of into the ground. Fuzzy picture is usually from low cable signal. This can be due to bad cables, connections, or splitters or problems outside with the drop (cable line outside that runs to the house). Splitters, by design, lower the cable signal (i.e. a 2 way splitter cuts the signal in half). If you have unnecessary splitters you should remove them. If you have more than about 6 or 7 tvs, you may need to add an amplifier.

Fuzzy picture


you probably have cold solder connections. locating that can be very time consuming. the cost of replacing the board is equal to the value of the set.

Bad Cable Input


Try using your RCA imput to see how the picture looks compared to the tuner picture,is possible your tuner imput is bad,make sure the conector is not loose,the overall picture should look different but not fuzzy all over,using a dvd picture thru the aux (rca)imput should show you the difference.If the conector is loose only it could be repaired but if it is solid the tuner might be bad and it will need to be replaced along with any board it might be mounted to.Let us know how it goes or if you need more information.
