Had the same problem.  Was quoted $800 to fix.  Searched the internet for 6 months and found this thread on avforums.com

Read through all the posts.  Very simple fix, but you have to have some mechanical inclinations or you can cause more problems than you started with.  I was up to 5 of the black lines, but decided to attempt the soldering these guys did and fixed it all for the cost of a soldering iron!  Even if you decide not to attempt it, it gives you somewhere to start to tell a technician.

Try to replace the YSCAN board. If not fix it, then it's the PDP Panel failure.

SOURCE: my smamsung lcd tv has thick horizontal lines

You have what we call 60 Cycle Hum Bar. You also might have audio hum too. The problem is a grounding issue either coming from the source such as a Cable Box or a Sat box. More often this occurs with cable boxes. First unplug the source box from the tv completely. You will find that the Lines have disappeared. Next connect a Coax cable coming from the wall bypassing the Box to the RF input on the tv. If you still have the Lines, then the problem is with the Cable signal not being correctly grounded and you need to call the Cable co.. The Cable box can also be causing this as well. If all of this does not work then try using another set of Component cables as they can cause the same issue.

SOURCE: tv is about 4 years old. Suddenly developed two

Your plasma screen is made up of 1080 verticle lines and now a few of these lines are not working. This is the screen itself and needs replacing.

My Samsung tv has thick horizontal line across top of screen


Check the LVDS cable that connects its T'Con board to display panel for any loose fitting at the both end of its sockets. Re-seat them once and check. This is not a problem with any capacitors. If you wish to get more details, check the site linked here. It has screen-shots to some faulty screens to LCD TVs. Compare them to that of your TVs' and make sure. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/ Pull up previous posts there, either by its left side bar, or view it in Timeslide option.

A horizontal thin black line has appeared across screen.


hi all .ive had the same problem,a thick black line down screen.sometimes it flickers from top to bottom and other permantly in view.but i have solved it.forget your ic boards and taking apart tv.have you got either a ps3 or wii connected to tv.if so unplug power lead from socket and relocate in seperate socket.make sure the lead is completely free of any other leads and you might just find this works.i think the power lead creates some sort of frequency that the tv picks up .good luck hope it works

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
Thanks
Eric
