SOURCE: the left side of my LG plasma has vertical lines.

It sounds to me like one or more of your buffer boards has gone bad. You will probably have to have it looked at.

SOURCE: I have a LG 50PX1D-UC plasma TV with a black vertical line

You could have a Driver Board that has a loose connection or a Ribbon Cable that has a intermittent connection to the Plasma Panel, or a defective Plasma Panel. Either one could cause the problem and I would recommend only a Qualified Service Person to check it out.
Here is LG's Customer Service Number. 1800-243-0000. They could direct you to a Local Service Facility.
I hope this helps,

Lg 42PG20 possible to work on a 220 volts?


The correct answer is "it depends on the power supply board used in it".

If you click on the picture at

http://www.coppelltvrepair.com/p/716/lg-42pg20-ua-power-supply-board-repair-service

and look at the lower left corner of the board you will see

100v-240V

printed in the lower left corner.

That board used in 42PG20 will definitely work on 220V.

Your TV may have a different board inside though.

DO not assume...verify.

Hope this helps!

I have a LG 42 inch plasma that turned off and doesnt want to turn back on. im thinking is the sensor is there anyone that can help out with this problem?


If you can turn it on with the button on the unit itself then it may be the IR sensor, but if you can't turn it on then it is very unlikely the sensor.

The power supply board of the 42PG20-UA is a known source of exactly this problem, although definitely not the only one that could possibly cause it.

Below is a link for a repair of the board, but the listing also contains a link to an article on how to test the power supply board alone, which is pretty useful before spending time and money sending it for repair. If anything you can rule one board out:

I have a LG 42PG20D with a one inch brite white stripe, going from top to bottom about 3/4 along the screen on the right side


That vertical stripe is not fixable in plasma TVs.
Well, easily 99% of them.
The reason is that what goes bad is actually embedded in the display itself and not subject to servicing or replacement.
1% , possibly less, of the plasma TVs out there have that part outside of the display and as such subject to replacement.
Sorry for the new and please do not kill the messenger!

There are several known issues that can cause that.

The top candidate is the main board, the next is the Y-Main board.

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.
