I have white, black and colored vertical lines on my Zenith flat screen with no picture. Do I need to replace the picture tube? What is the solution?


Flat screen LCD or Plasma sets (where this question is posted) have no picture tube---a brand and MODEL number might allow me to help you.

1" black vertical line in center of screen. Sony Plasma.


NOT DEFECTIVE!!!
There are 4 or 5 ribbon cables on the bottom or on one side, they control part of the plasma screen. Check the ribbon cable2_bing.gifnear the black lines. Unplug the ribbon cable and look for black chipson the underside of it, I think they say 100 on them, you need toresolder both ends on each chip. Should fix the black line issue.

LG 50PG3000 SOUND BUT NO PICTURE


This sounds like a screen problem, possibly the internal connecting cable (LVDS) which connects from the main board to the screen may have become loose. If not a replacement screen would be required.

Black bar


On a non H.Def plasma, there is a PCB that runs along the bottom of the screen that is attached to the screen by a several brown/gold colored flat ribbon cables. I've seen where this ribbon cable is not seated properly in the jack. The ribbon cables are generally responsible for that section of the screen. Next possibility is the PCB itself is defective.
Not to scare you, but the plasma screen itself is a possible suspect.
