Question about Panasonic TH-50PX60U 50 in. Plasma HDTV

2 Answers


I recently moved my plasma TV and a day after the moving a thin horizontal line appeared at about 1,5" from the botton of the screen. I bought this TV in the US to be shipped to Brazil where I am ... so bye-bye warranty, unless I want to pay the US$ 800.00 shipping cost to have it shipped back to the States. Could you please, please, PLEASE HEEEEEEELP ME??? What could it be? I only have a DVD player and the DirectTV box connected. Thank you soooo much in advance.

    Since I have Directv, a 1/2" line all across the top screen developed. It's kind of bothersome, how do I get rid of it. I love my Panasonic Projection TV, it has a good view to it. Great movies!

If it is a cable...There are many(from 7-11)driver ribbon cable with horizontal driver chips mounted on them!!!! So if problem didn´t go away after fixing all cables...your plasma has died.

A horizontal thin black line has appeared across screen.

hi all .ive had the same problem,a thick black line down screen.sometimes it flickers from top to bottom and other permantly in view.but i have solved it.forget your ic boards and taking apart tv.have you got either a ps3 or wii connected to tv.if so unplug power lead from socket and relocate in seperate socket.make sure the lead is completely free of any other leads and you might just find this works.i think the power lead creates some sort of frequency that the tv picks up .good luck hope it works

Thin horizontal line, Panasonic TH-50PX60U

unfortunately the panel is bad. I've worked on a number of these panels to know that symptom. I checked with panasonic and the warranty is one year parts and labor. you may be able to get panasonic to fix it if you still have warranty (purchased within 1 yr.) or check with your state's implied warranty. you might qualify for warranty repair under this implied warranty. call panasonic when you find out about the state's rules.
