Re: goodmans 42 plasma gtv42p3

This sort of fault is normally caused by a bad connection on one of the ribbon cables on the ysus board, Ribbon connectors will need to be cleaned with isopropyl alcohol & replugged in firmly. If you undertake this work your self please be carefull not to dage the ribbon when pulling out & refitting.

Hi have a samsung 42 inch plasma, all of a sudden it has a band 20cm wide of dotted lines going across the whole screen, some channels or when playstation in use the band gets wider, does not seem to...

if the band is horizontal your tv has bad y-buffer board. Usually there are 2 buffer boards- top and bottom. if the problem is in the top half of the screen replace the top board, otherwise replace bottom board.
but better to replace both a the same time.

if the tv has a vertical lines from top to bottom it may have bad plasma panel and can be considered as not economical to repair.

42 inch samsung plasma tv black vertical lines

Hi, Depeending on the thickness of the lines matters. If the lines are Black and about 1-2 inches thick it may be a bad bottom buffer board or a bad panel (screen).
If the lines are thin 1/16 to 1/8 inch it is most likely a bad panel.
You can open up the set and depending on the model, see the thin board/boards running across the bottom with ribbon cables going to the panel. You may be able to attempt reseating the ribbon cables, but be careful as some retainer plugs break very easy.
If the lines are thick black and the reseating doesn't correct it you may be able to buy the coresponding buffer. Unfortunately some bottom buffers are actually part of the panel. If you are not comfortable taking it apart then call a professional but be aware labor charges start around $200 not counting parts, panels start at $600 up to over $1000
hope this helps

Goodmans plasma 42" gtv42p3

When that happened, the part responsible is often a ribbon connector cable, that connects to the plasma screen right when the screen starts to be black.
The ribbon cable has a built in chip , when the chip is gone you get this problem.

Thick color lines on screen

Hi ,Sorry, this is not a solution. I have a question about your line. Is it transparent? (can you see through if the picture is bright)Does it remain there all the time if you change inputs? My LG 42" just had a blue transparent line appear on the right side of screen. Tried a few trouble shooting things w/ no change. About 1 hour later it went away. Did you find a solution and what was it?

1inch line from top to bottom

The black line indicates that either the flex cable that connects the panel to the buffer board has come loose or the panel is bad. Try to reseat the connector located inline with the symptom seen on the screen, if it's loose or inserted crooked, the panel will show this problem. Good luck. Joe Weibel
