Dell W4200 Display Problem

We have a 3 year old Dell W4200 plasma TV. This just started - there are 4 "bars" of distorted display coming from the bottom center of the screen. They flicker on and off, but are there 95% of the time.
Suggestions? Repairable?

Dell W4200. Need original base / stand


Ebay or craigslist is the only two places I know to look.

Good luck though, I have th esame TV and Dell discontinued all production of TV's about 2 years ago, so spare parts are hard to come by.

You may also want to give them a call and see if they have a spare part they will sell, but be prepared to pay $$$

When Playing Halo 3... The Screen Shrinks Down...


kyleolver,
16:9 is the widescreen mode, the other size is 4:3 ratio which is what the game's native size, it is picture boxing by the plazma is showing the size as not to distort the image, to get the full screen picture, but make sure it's not the plazma's setting first - where it selects the size of the image, you may have the streched version on your normal play.
