Goodmans GTV42P plasma display fault

I have an old-ish Goodmans 42 inch plasma which appears to have bitten the dust. When powered on the screen is blue with an 8" white band on the RHS of the screen. This bansd swaps to the LHS of teh screen when I press teh "menu" button. Very strange? Is this a common fault or worth fixing, or do I bin the telly? The display also has a sticker on the back saying LGPDP42V6

Just hold down the input button on the right side of the tv. This is the bottom one. So,
With the tv off,
press and hold the bottom button (input)
when the tv turns on, and you see the input menu
release and press the button to put the tv into a mode that works!

I had the Same issue. on a 50PF9431D/37 set. Many Plasma Set's use a LJ44-00118A PS-505-PH Power supply from Samsung. Known to have this common problem. If you can, or have a friend that can Solder components?. Unplug your set remove the back panel & locate your power supply. It will be the PCB in the center of the set just above the Video/Audio connections. Is a Link to a photo of the PCB. Make a note of the locations of all cable connections then unplug them all. Un-install PCB, Check all Fuse first. I believe their is 5 or 6 of them on the PCB. Then replace the two 3300uf 10v 105C Radial capacitors at C8060 & C8059. Look to see if the Caps are deformed and or split at the top. The location of the caps are in the Lower bottom edge of the PCB. A local shop may Carrie them if not, digi-key has them. Part # Total cost was $7 with S/H.

I believe that you are experiencing an intermittent problem with what's called your florescent lamp ballast. The best thing is that it can be repaired/fix. There should be a LG repair shop in your area. Cheaper to bring it in than have a service tech come to your residence.
Should be between $200 to $300 for a repair.

This sort of fault is normally caused by a bad connection on one of the ribbon cables on the ysus board, Ribbon connectors will need to be cleaned with isopropyl alcohol & replugged in firmly. If you undertake this work your self please be carefull not to dage the ribbon when pulling out & refitting.
