If you have tried using different input devices, looked for loose contacts

A black line running verticall down the middle of

There is no invertor board on a plasma tv. The fault is the X address buffer board. This is located on the bottom of the screen and runs horizontally the whole width of the screen. If you remove the heatsink plate that covers the x address boards and you need to look at the screen ribbon at the same position as where the bar is (in the middle).Vary gently lift the Xbuffer ribbon lock and gently take out the ribbon.Clean the contacts very carefully with a fibre pen or an electrical cleaning fluid.Insert ribbon back and heatsink and check.Here is a picture of the board and ribbon

a 1 inch bar is associates with 1 ribbon fault. So if the bar was 3 inches in from the left of the screen, the faulty ribbon will be 3 inches in from the right working from behind the TV. If cleaning dont cure the fault, then the Buffer IC will be blown and order a new centre buffer board (you can buy off Ebay)

My TV has a black square in the middle of the picture. How do I fix that?


Your screen is showing a black picture because the closed caption function has been activated. When this closed caption mode is turned on the screen will display an 80% black picture.

To turn off the closed caption and regain a full screen please follow these steps;

1) Press the Menu button

2) Use the up and down arrows to navigate to Closed Caption

3) Use the right or left arrows to select it.

4) Use the right or left arrows to select OFF

5) Use the up or down arrows to select Finish

6) Use the right or left arrows to save the settings and exit.

You should have your full screen back now minus the annoying black box.

Thanks for using FixYa. A rating is appreciated if the solution has worked for you.

Black line down the left side of the screen

This is a bad panel. The panel is very expensive to replace. It would be cheaper to buy a new tv. Sorry about the bad news.
