To start check the video setting , so to ensure that you are not just talking about the side bands that you get when you watch a squared screen (4:3) picture on your new rectangular screen (16:9).

If the problem is also with an external receiver, test on a different device, like a DVD.

If the above did not fixed the problem, then you have a faulty Lower buffer board, or a bad connector to plasma screen.

In this case call immediately the seller to arrange replacement.

Panasonic TC-P42S2 .. Transparent 2 inch wide vertical discoloration on panasonic 42 inch plasma, very left of the screen.


Fixed mine, myself! Black 3 inch vertical band (stripe) appeared after a cros country move on our PC-T50G10. Occasionally we would see white band with multicolored pixel width stripes. Took the risk of taking off the back to see if I could see anything. Found places on sides and bottoms where plastic like 2" flat cables could be seen. Guesstimated where the band was and found that I could flip down a black cover on one end of the cable. Tried to pull it, gently. Mistake. Realized it wouldn't one out like computer hard drive cables, so I took out the screws holding the plate on the other end (it's only an inch long). That allowed me remove the cable. Took it out, cleared away dust, put t back and closed the black over. It worked! Put the screws back in, back on and... we are happy (although I do have four extra screws!). Just be gentle.

Black vertical band on left side


There is a good chance that the plasma panle may have become faulty, but another cause of this is a faulty X-SUS Printed Circuit Board or a Y-SUS Pinted Circuit Board, they are labelled which is which on the Circuit Board themselves. Replacing both of these may solve the problem. Good Luck.
