Question about Zenith P42W46X 42 in. Plasma EDTV

1 Answer

Multiple vertical lines on screen.

Ive noticed alot of problems about lines, but none seem to be as bad as mine.

I got a Zenith p42w46x given to me by a friend. There is a thick vertical white line on the left side, a red and green line on the right side, and a few faint green and blue lines between. I dont mind the faint ones, but the big thick ones really bug me. Im not sure how old the tv is. Would someone please help?

Hi I am Vortash Although this is trademarked as a Zenith the manufacturer of this set is LG and the prefix P42W46X is one of their set product numbers and is actually one of their RU-42W46X 10/11/12 -series televisions . The problem you are describing may be either incorrect display setting or incorrect picture fomat letterbox .. 4.3 pan or 16.9 widescreen I am guessing you do not have the manual for this set and I have found one on this site http://www.safemanuals.com under the LG P46W46X prefix FREE it may help you to solve this.
Another problem it may be is a power supply fault , components under heat conditions cann change value and restrict power flow causing many different faults this is particuarly true of semiconductors prior to failiure ..Try adjusting the set according to the manual and if this does not cure the problem I am afraid you are going to have to get the set looked at by an engineer . Regards Vortash

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

P42W46X Zenith Plasma - No Picture - Mostly Yellow on screen


Mine looks like too, but the line running across isn't on my set, picture looks like this, and the sound works fine. I took the tuner board all the way out and turned the set on and it did the same thing, then I unplugged the top wire on the board next to the tuner board and the screen went black. plugged it back in and the screen came back with the scrambled picture. Anyone know why? Bad mainboard maybe? the left of the tuner board?

I have just had the same problem. It affects both the component inputs but the A/V inputs are OK. If I disconnect the green input, the screen goes black and displays "No signal." Service guy came out and said the Y-board needed replacing. Haven't done this yet

Screen full of moving colored lines


I would suspect bad solder connections allowing a ground to "float" It is a common problem with the model P42W24BX which I believe uses similar circuitry as your model. An experienced repair shop should be able to get you fixed up.
