Question about Zenith Z50PX2D 50 in. Plasma HDTV

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.?

    The technitian who is trying to resusitate my tv said that by replacing the video module located on the back, which he opened, on the right side. With that solution would I solve the problem?

I have a Lexmark x6570 that I have used with my Dell Inspiron 1501 MANY times. It won't print now. It says "printing started" but only moves across 10-99% and stops. Nothing ever prints. I have uninstalled...

there is a little plastic clear strip of plastic that has little black lines on it. this is so the printer head knows where it is. This is usually hanging on little metal pins, and can be knocked off if the printer is jarred while printing. if you see a little clear plastic strip that runs the length of the printer track and its not attached at both ends you need to put this back on. its a pain so take your time.

If not, it could be any number of problems.

Carrier stall

The encoder strip is most likely the problem. Unplug the power from the printer. Open the front cover and move the cartridge carrier to the center. You should see a white ribbon cable, a thin plastic strip and a black belt with teeth.

The thin plastic strip is the encoder strip. It rides in a sensor on the back of the cartridge carrier that you will not be able to see. Reach in with the first finger of either hand and carefully strum the strip as if playing a guitar.

The strip will need to be lowered slightly and brought towards you slightly. Please be careful not to break the strip or your printer will not function. Once you believe the strip is set correctly, plug the power back and try printing the self test.

To self-test the printer, please follow the steps given below:

1. Press the "Menu" button 10 times. It should then read "Maintenance" on the printer's display screen.
2. Press the "Select" button once. You should then see "Cartridges" displayed on the printer screen.
3. Press the "Right Arrow" button 3 times, which then brings you to the "Self-Test" option.
4. Press the "Select" button once. It should print out a sheet of paper with horizontal color and black lines and smaller vertical lines.

The self-test should at least print out a set of either black or color bars, if not both (if you have a printer with both color and black installed simultaneously). Should this test fail, try it again without cartridges installed. If the self-test still fails to take paper in and make sounds like the carrier is moving across the paper, this is a hardware issue, and the printer will require service. If the self-test completes without any cartridges installed, run the self-test again with the color cartridge installed. (If you have both black and color cartridges, after this test, run the test again with just the black cartridge installed.) If you find that either cartridge causes the self-test to fail, please let us know.

If the self-test prints, but has lines or smudges or other print quality issues, please let us know. This includes any print quality issues and we need to know if the problems you have with your black or color are based in the printer, or communications with your computer, or the computer's software.  
If the self-test prints your test bar(s) clearly, the printer hardware is not at fault.

LCD screen problem

Hi Qureshi,

Unfortunately the only thing that usually fixes this is replacing the LCD. If you open it up, you will see a white strip of tape and cables on the top, back of the LCD screen. This is the most fragile part of the LCD and is most likely where the damage is. Sometimes you can find this piece by itself, but usually you can't purchase it separately.

Vertical black line on screen

Your set has either a bad driver board or more likely a bad plasma panel.

Picture vanished

The problem might have started because of loose conections in the vertical circuit,if the vertical circuit fails completly the screen blanks out to prevent a line being burnt in the picture tube so that part is normal but the problem is still in the vertical circuit.Maybe the IC just went bad all the way and it might have taken a fusible resistor. If you are familiar with tv service you have a place to check but if you are not too familiar be safe and call for assistance from a servicer,is a straight forward problem and it should not be expensive.Let US know how it goes or if you need more information.
