Question about Panasonic Televison & Video

1 Answer

My Panasonic smart tv had a thin blue line running down the middle of the screen earlier today. When a tv show was playing the right side of the blue line was fuzzy. Tonight I came home and now when I turn on the tv, the screen is light grey. I am unable to do anything. Example, channels, input, volume. The tv is not responding at all. What happened and can this be fixed?

SOURCE: 42HDS69 42 in. Plasma has several thin green vertical lines in middle of screen

If the set is still in warranty, call for warranty service. If not and you feel comfortable working on the set, carefully open up the back and reseat all of hte cables and connectors. This can be caused by marginal connections inside the set.

Keep us posted on your progress and results.

I think that you have dry solder joints on either the vertical scan board, the focus board, the line output stage, or the chroma panel. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: Lines on tv screen

Both sound like bad LCD panels. The following must be answered to confirm this:
Do the lines appear on all inputs/all signal sources?
Can they be seen in the OSD/menu?
If yes to both questions, it is likely that the LCD panel is bad

SOURCE: thin blue line down middle of screen

The red line driver at that point isn't working or there is a bad connection to the panel for that line. (I assume the intensity and hue of the cyan line varies witht the picture). What type of screen is it? Plasma or LCD? The following is for LCDs and may not apply to plasma panels. (I haven't had to fix those yet.)

Once in a while you can solve the problem on an LCD by gently massaging the connector to the display panel edge at the bad spot, although there is a risk of causing other lines to drop out. I once fixed an LCD that had a hair caught between the elastomeric connector and the display glass, but if that were the culprit in your case, you'd probably be missing more than one line. It could also be a problem with the driver chip for that line.

Be very careful about tearing into the LCD. The connections are very delicate, the fluorescent backlight tubes are glass and have mercury inside, and the potential for electrostatic discharge damage is always a concern. It's easy to cause more problems than you fix when you get into the connections, although those can usually be reversed with patience and steady hands. The worst case is a misalignment that would mess up your color registration (color drive going to the wrong line). Most panels have a sticker inside warning against removing the driver electronics. It's there for a good reason.

If I've scared you off, or if the connector massage doesn't work, there are companies like Moniserv that specialize in repairing LCDs. They have the equipment and dust-free facilities needed to repair bad panel drivers.

Nothing you can do about that...get used to it or change the TV.
It's a defect in the panel that can't be reliably fixed.

Sounds like a faulty Plasma Display Panel.

Contact Panasonic and find out if it is still covered under warranty.

Coloured lines down the right side of screen


if the lines extend top to bottom and are thin, then the LCD panel is most likely defective.

Right half of screen black with thin blue line top to bottom about another line inch over another thin line starting blue then red getting thiner to bottom


This is a very common problem with this Panasonic set where half the right side is bad and the other half is good. This has been traced to a general plasma panel defect in the manufacturing precess. The panel lasts only about 1.5 years and they go bad. The only solution is to replace the plasma panel. The charges for the cost and labor will double the original prize of the TV set.Good luck.
