Re: burnt screen

Bring it to a computer shop they can usually fix this kind of problem for less than 100$, it usually has to do with setting certain subwoofers to close to it.

Two vertical black lines on the screen of my ps50b430

Unless someone played with the TV and disconnected the plasma display from the address buffer boards that go under the screen the prospects aren't good.

All vertical lines in all plasma TVs I have seen are operated by chips embedded in the fabric of the display as well.

When they fail they'd either short or burn open.

In the first case they'd prevent the TV from coming up, in the second they'd typically manifest as either black or a random color vertical line like you have.

This is not repairable...sorry.

The odds of this being something else is fairly minimal in my opinion.

Please don't kill the messenger...

Black Vertical Lines in screen

All I can tell you is that you maybe have left your T.V. on a channel that didn't move for so long, or maybe someone else did and it burnt the screen. Plasma's run off of plasma gas to create the great picture and they collect on the screen and stick. What you need to do is go to your menu and look for "screen burn protection" and put it on white and let it sit for 20 minutes. All of one color such as white doesn't harm your T.V. The only way anything burns is like a bright white line in front of a black background.

Burnt screen

This is usually caused by a dry joint on the vertical driver board or ribbon cable. Remove back panel and run your fingernail or an insulated rod (chopstick) along the contacts until the bars go away, then resolder the joints.
