Pink line down middle of screen

Just noticed a pink line down the middle of my Plasma 50HP66. I cannot get this to go away. The TV is only a little over 2 years old, no children, very little, if any video game use. What can I do?

Thanks

It sounds like the video output isn't
working its most likely a component
failure 1 thing you could try is connecting
a rca cables from video/audio out on the set to
another set vid/audio inputs to see if it the video gets
through.This is a problem that requires technical
knowledge and test equipment to trace the video

That problem is caused by the Y Sustainer board.

Most likely a power supply failure, and or a failure on one of the other boards that is causing the shutdown.

The set will need service.

I think that the pop you heard was an electrolytic capacitor blowing its top on the picture frame board. If you are able to check this for yourself by looking on the board for the one/s with a bulging top or are a brownish/black colour like something has caught fire. And also in this situation smell can be of great help as it will smell burnt out but PLEASE before putting your nose or anything else in the tv take all necessary precautions against electric shock and discharge any electrolytic capacitors in the vicinity. If you are not able to do this yourself find a competant technician. Hope this helps.

Found that video 1 and video 2 switching does not work. The switching IC was HOT!. Then found a third video input works but no sound. Hooked -up sound output of DVD player to amplified loudspkr and it works, I hate to throw away a 2 year-old plasma TV when TV and cable still works.
Thanks for the offer anyway.

I'm affraid to say that your screen has got a PDP/LCD fault. Just like a tube going on a TV. This is a fault which is beyond economical repair

50HP66 50 in. Plasma Television: i have red dots/shadowing on my tv...


I got the red dots really bad on my toshiba 50hp66 after an hour or two of watching tv. I found out that if you open up the tv in the back on the left you will find two adjustment pots labelled Vsc and Vy. I took a sharpie and marked where the factory defaults were first. Then I adjusted the Vy pot down a little bit and the red spots were gone! My tv looks great again!

We have Toshiba 42" Plasma TV about 4 yrs old. The past couple of weeks we've noticed that there is a horizontal rolling band of pinkish color (about 8-10" band.) We really notice it when there are people...


Im pretty sure its not the television. You are getting interference from either through your cable box or your electric in the house. Possible bad dimmer switch.

It sounds like you have a fault on the picture frame board and for a competant technician this is not much of a problem. Or it could be something as simple as dry solder joints. Either way the tv can be saved and is worth fixing. Hope this helps.
