Re: half the picture is black

On this LCD TV not alot I am afraid my friend. You have a problem with the panel drive cable or the driver IC's or the LCD panel itself. There are no parts to replace, only complete boards and an authorized Sony repair depot will need to look at this set to determine what board is defective because it could be one of 3, and or the LCD panel. Good Luck

If its a Plasma it uses sustain or t con boards--sustain will usually be two--one for left side and one for right.

Only boards are sold for these sets--no individual parts--discover which board drives the right side and replace it while crossing your fingers--either it fixed the problem or you have a bad display panel (entire screen unit which is fatal from a cost point of view).

PANASONIC TH-42PX60U 42 - half of screen not working

I had the same issue. I am going to replace my scan buffer boards. The upper half of mine works but the lower half is black so I would replace the lower Scan buffer board but in case of future issues I have ordered both upper and lower for $44.
The scan buffer boards are fairly simple to locate. Open up back of tv there are two biffer boards identical. The item or product code on them contain letters either SU or SD (Scan up and Scan down)Look up tv parts and item code you will find a place to order or just get the 1 800 number from tv manufacturer.

Half TV screen is black

you have a bad Y Sustain board or X Sustain board
undo the back (if you know how to deal with electronics) and with the TV unplugged disconnect one of the board and turn on, see if works or not and try with the other one till find out wich one is.

Screen is half picture and half black with vertical colored lines

I had the same issue. I could get the tv to work intermittantly by pressing on the boards while playing. This points to bad solder joint, so I resoldered every molex plug connector, and it nows works like a charm.
