Question about Zenith Z50PX2D 50 in. Plasma HDTV

1 Answer

Vertical black strip

Vertical 1/3 of screen on the center black, and does not vanishes. You can actually see people moving on and about, but nothing happens on the center strip. Sound O.K.

I am in Venezuela, South America, and there seem to be no LG dealer to handle the problem. Is there a part to change or do I have to send tv set back to U.S.?

TV quits working, screen goes black and red light next to power green light flashes 4 quick flashes . After a second or two of no flashing,red light repeats "code" flash. We pull the power plug at the TV,...

The Sony diagnostic routine for 4 blinks indicates it to be a vertical deflection problem.

Did you see a solid horizontal line in the center of the screen prior to it going out? If so, that is a tell tale sign for vertical problems.

basic sony reset below

The STANDBY light will flash if the television detects an issue within the television. Some of these issues can be resolved simply by following the steps below to reset the television.

  1. Turn off the television. IMPORTANT: For a projection television that uses an internal lamp, wait 5 minutes after turning off the television to allow the lamp to cool before continuing with the following steps.
  2. Unplug the television power cord from the electrical outlet.
  3. Let the television remain without power for 60 seconds.
  4. Plug the power cord back into the electrical outlet. NOTE: If the television is plugged into a power strip or surge protector, remove it from the power strip or surge protector and plug it directly into the wall outlet. If the issue is resolved, the problem is with the power strip or surge protector and not the television.
  5. Turn on the television.

If the issue is still unresolved after following all of the troubleshooting steps, service may be required. Please note the number of times the STANDBY light flashes and relay that information to the service center

Panasonic plasma 1 solid black vertical line left of center

faint chance here, the larger or thicker the line the worse it is. Usually this is a defect inside the panel where it cannot be gotten at---rarely this will be a plug or connection outside of the panel.

The screen unit or display panel costs more than the set did new.

1" black vertical line in center of screen. Sony Plasma.

There are 4 or 5 ribbon cables on the bottom or on one side, they control part of the plasma screen. Check the ribbon cable2_bing.gifnear the black lines. Unplug the ribbon cable and look for black chipson the underside of it, I think they say 100 on them, you need toresolder both ends on each chip. Should fix the black line issue.

The picture is compressed to a very small horizontal line across the center of the screen. What needs to be replaced?

Probably the vertical output IC and a couple of electolytic capacitors that dried up and caused it to fail.
