42 Inch Philips plasma

I have a 42" Philips plasma bought at best buy in 7-05 from the get go it did not work right.The tv would shut of and on by itself so they sent a tech and fixed it but it still will go blank no and then and come back on.And they would not trade tvs with me so I was stuck.But now I was using it to run my cam cor-der thru it to record a dvd that I have hooked up to the tv.All of sudden I looked up and the screen has horizontal black lines and the picture is fuzzy and super imposed images on the screen with sparkles??
I have tried to reset many times and it does not help.Also there are no techs in my area so it will cost me time and money to get it fixed.Anything I can do?? Thank You.....Chuck

I have a 42 inch philips plasma tv with a broken screen, could i replace it with a screen from a panasonic 42 inch tv

No--this is called a PDP or plasma display panel and no two (even same brand) can be interchanged.

The cost of a Panel exceeds the cost of a new set--broken screen=fatal issue.

We have lost a two inch wide black section on the right side of the plasma panel, any ideas

Most likely the lower buffer board " E " needs to be replaced. Right now I'm working on repairing a 42" Samsung plasma HP-R4272. The Service manual for that TV says for trouble shooting for that problem is the lower buffer board " E ".
Best to find the correct Service Manual for your TV over the internet to get the correct part number for replacement. The Service Manual should be less than $20.

I am a TV repair technician and what you are experiencing with your plasma and PS3 is a HDMI compatibility problem. The Philips plasma and the PS3 electronic handshaking (EDID) are not right. This happens alot with an older version of HDMI like 1.1(Philips Plasma) and a newer version of HDMI 1.3 (PS3). A tv firmware or PS3 firmware update will not resolve the problem. I would recommend using the HD component video cables and that should work just fine for playing High Definition BluRay movies.

42 inch

its gonna be cheaper for u to buy a new TV than buy a replacement panel if your looking to buy one I highly doubt you will be able to find one under $1500 and thats not including the shipping charge for a panel that weights 80 lbs. Best bet is too buy a new TV.
