    My TV has begun displaying a "debug" message about mid-way down the left side of the screen. It is a Panasonic TH-50PX75U. It operates normally in all other respects. How do I eliminate the "debug" message and/or what does it mean?

There are videos on YouTube on how to fix the black line problem on plasma TVs. There is specifically a nine year old boy named Nico that shows how the repair is done. It is a simple problem but time consuming because you have to take the back of the TV off and maybe two other large parts. The problem is caused by solder that separates or breaks and you just take a small tipped solder iron and reflow the solder. It might take someone that doesn't know much about TVs, a couple hours but it is fixable. There is an AV forum online that shows pictures and instructions on exactly how it done:
http://www.avforums.com/forums/plasma-tvs/462873-black-line-fault-hyundai-hpt4240-fixed.html
While the posts on this forum are old-most of the plasma TVs are basically the same as far as how to fix the problem. We're getting ready to takes ours apart because it has a black vertical line on the far left of the screen. Our problem started about a year-and-a-half ago but we've just been too busy to fix it but I'm tired of it so we'll try it.

I have a 2" black line at the top of the tv. And also smaller black lines across the middle of the tv.


Dear Jeff,
It seems like the Horizontal IC in your TV is dying. This and the Vertical IC is responsible for displaying images on your TV. (Look at your TV through your Phone Camera and you will see upward scrolling lines.This is the Horizontal IC in action.)
I would strongly advise you to get your TV repaired immediately.

Vertical line down the screen about 2 inches thick


Hello,

IF YOU HAVE A SOLID BLACK LINE RUNNING VERTICALLY THEN YOU HAVE A FAULTY MATRIX INVERTER. IF CENTRAL THE MAIN VERTICAL INVERTER NEEDS CHANGED. LEFT = LEFT VERTICAL INVERTER RIGHT=RIGHT.........

ANOTHER WAY TO GET THIS FAULT IS WORN OR DAMAGED RIBBON/PLASTIC GOING FROM THE SCREEN MATRIX TO THE INVERTER

HOPING THIS WILL HELP TO SOLVE THE PROBLEM....

Black 3" vertical line through the center of my Plasma TV


Sounds to me like one of the drivers for the display died. Typically this requires a replacement of the entire panel (expensive) but I'd check with your local repair shop
