SOURCE: 50" LG Plasma - Thin red vertical line in middle of screen

I work for a auth LG service center and each time I have had this symptom we had to either change what called the T_CON control board or the Plasma display panel itself. You need to cocntact LG @ 800-253-0000 report your problem and they will find a service center in your area you should have 1 year warranty parts and labor.

Did this fix your issue? I have the same issue with this model. If so, was it very expensive?

Vertical colouered lines on the right side of the screen...


If it looks like a pin or magic marker drawn straight down the screen, it most likely is a de-laminated flex cable to the glass, if it is the panel needs replaced.

Thin vertical line appears on projector


I have found that vertical lines that suddenly appear from projectors are due to poorly connected cables. Sut off your projector and wait for the fan to go off. Then unplug the connectors from the computer to the projector and secure them again, making sure to go all the way. Hope this helps.

20" orion tv


Hello mel2003,

This problem is caused by the loss of vertical deflection. Either the vertical output section of your TV or the vertical coupling capacitor has completely failed. In any event you will have to have a TV technician fix this set, BTW I hope you have not been playing the TV with the line on the screen this will burn the TV screen.

I hope this helps
Thank you,

Vertical lines across my entire screen


My 42" Samsung Plasma HDTV HP-R4252 has a 2" vertical strip of green pixels down the right side of the screen.

My 3 year warranty with Circuit City expires in Nov 2008.. so I hope I'm covered.. can't call until the morning.

Samsung said it might be a logic board problem.. but they want almost $2000 to fix. I might as well buy another TV if Circuit City can't fix it.

Vertical black line on screen


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

Picture problems


If the line goes across the screen you have a loose solder joint on the vertical output IC. I've seen this happen many times in Zeniths and a lot of other sets. If the IC is not loose then there is a loose solder joint somewhere else in the vertical circuit. These IC's are 10 - 13 pin chips that operate the vertical deflection on your set. I feel like a drop of solder in the right place will fix it! Stargazer
