SOURCE: TV Screen Stripes
NOt very clear.....
Multiple stripes all over the screen? Vertical or horizontal?
If it's only like an inch vertical lines put a mark on the cabinet where exaclty the line is, turn off the TV then open the back, you'll see lots of ribbon wires (gold color) from the plasma panel it self going to buffer boards, using the mark find the closest ribbon wire where the line is showing then remove and clean the contacts, make sure to reseat it properly when putting it back otherwise you'll just add more lines or black bar on the screen if pins are not seating properly.
But do not be afraid if the lines get worst just turn the power off right away and reaset the ribbon wire till you get it correctly.
DO NOT try to do this while the TV is on oherwise you'll burn COF (Chip on film) on the panel and you'll end up replacing the whole PDP.

In most cases, you can reset the TV by leaving it unplugged for 30mins.
If this doesn't work, I believe the circuit board that supplies power to the screen maybe bad. They call this board a backlight inverter board. It would most likely cost more to repair than replace the TV .

I had this problem in 2007 / 2008 here is what happened to me.
Jan 09, 2008 - I also have brought the unit to the authorized Panasonic repair facility and the problem is a failure in the P-board which is the power supply board. The P-board needs to be replaced. The repair will cost $475 plus tax. $250 is for labor. The unit was nop more than two months out of warranty. This does not speak well for Panasonic. I have been researching the problem and it looks like this has happened to many of the Panasonic plasma TVs.
Jun 14, 2008 - As an update to my problem with the failed P board. Contacted Panasonic Service and talked to a customer service representative. I told them how I have purchased many Panasonic products and how unhappy I was with the failure of the product. They proposed paying the labor cost of $250 and I would pay for the part. I just hope it does not happen again.
