Re: trouble with 42pc3dv 42 in. hdtv plasma

I have had the very same problem, I contacted LG who in turn gave me a website list to contact a repairer in Australia ( and after the service personnel came out to inspect it, it is today being carried away to get a whole new screen etc placed in the existing surround.  Apparently it is a problem that needs to be replaced.If it is under warranty, I suggest going to the LG site.

Thin curved lines in sony widescreen

Those sound like what is called "scan lines" and are the result of the way the picture is "drawn" on the face of the screen. Something in the set is allowing too much drive to the screen, as these are usually suppressed during normal operation...accordianman
