Depending on brand,model etc it could be a bad buffer board-thin board along bottom of set-or bad plasma display panel itself.On some units the buffer bd is not available seperatly and you must replace the plasma panel which will cost much more than the set.

Tv powers on get a white bar with black stripes on the side and when I hit buttons on the remote control more colored bars come up. Has anyone had this problem before and fixed it

My first guess would be the Y-sus board, check for blown fuses, also the buffer board check ic and look for chip on buffer ics down the left side of the set in back.

We have black bars going down the middle and one side of the scree. We have seen many video's on soldering the pieces but this tv seems different then most. HELP economy has us and can;t afford a new one.

Black bars down the middle of the screen and on one side that affect the MENU and the picture, are caused by the panel or Drive board. This is generally not repairable. The panel flex cables are sonic welded, not soldered. A plasma Panel is very dangerous to operate with the back off. Be careful!
The drivers for the panel are often attached direct to the flex cables.

My plasma tv TH42PX60B has one of the side bars black in colour. The picture around the bar is distorted while all the other parts of the picture is fine.could you advice me of what component may have gone...

Do you mean that there is a black bar down the screen? if so and it is on both TV and DVD then it is the TV that is faulty. Either there is a loose connection on the digital board or panel FPC's (Flat Panel Connectors) or the plasma panel itself has failed. Need to take it in for service.

Black vertical bar about 4 and a half inches wide down center of screen

It sounds like an Intergrated Circuit (IC) has fried.
Your best bet in this situation is to contact ur tv service operator and let them recommend an authorized service center in your area....

Sony PFM-42B1 with black bar in 720p

yes, stop using a plasma TV as a computer monitor. Using the TV this way is an invitation to phosphur burn which these are very prone to. The issue you describe is due to the limitations of the TVs scaler circuit to properly center the image in 720P.
