Re: Phillips 42in plasma lines ocross screen

Are the solid horizontal black lines or colored lines. If colored lines there is a posibility that your Y-main, and upper and lower Y-buffers are bad. If black you have a bad plasma panel.

You probably have a bad plasma panel. Have a repair shop check it out though because it could also be one of the buffer boards.

The ribbon cable to the drive has either came loose of the drive itself went bad. You can open up the back if you are confident and see if adjusting the cable gets the line back. If not you will need to replace the Upper Y Drive.
