Re: Rolling Screen

Unfortunately there is no a simple solution for that the most simple could be a software upgrade but it depends. the signal board could be defective too. if technical support can't provide parts for it try ebay with your model # hope this answer can help you to make a desicion . let me know thanks

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.

Very light colored verticle (1" wide) ribbon on LG 42" Plasma TV

The TV is design for 16:9 format. The bars appear when the TV off showing that the TV has been watching under channels which is have 4:3 format for long time. The screen was burn out because no sweepping to those area. This is not critical problem but you can do nothing to fix it. To eliminate it a bit you shoud read the manual, I believe it has mentioned how to roll or sweep the screen. For plasma TV, if you keep watching 4:3 channels fomat, you shoud do it one a month within 30'. Good luck

Broken Screen on Plasma TV

Broken Screen on Plasma TV A broken TV screen can not be fixed. A replacement sceen can cost as much as a new tv since the new set prices keep falling. You can sell the unit for parts. (ebay?)

You can get a screen protector from;

or fashion your own.

Thin horizontal line,about 6 inches from bottom,is it fixable?

I am assuming it goes all the way across and is black ?
It sounds like a scan line in one of the chips inside has gone bad or needs to be resoldered. Most likely needs the board replaced by a tech.
Hope this helps
