Question about Panasonic VIERA TH-42PX60U 42 in. Plasma HDTV

2 Answers

My 42" Plasma Viera (2010) has developed a vertical band of varicolored pixellation right in the center of the screen. Has anyone else experienced this problem and succeeded in having it fixed?

Tried Panasonic TV tech support. They wanted to charge me before they would tell me whether I should find a service technician.

The most likely explanation is that you have a dead pixel line. This is typically something that can only be remedied by: 1) replacing the whole panel, 2) replacing the whole TV. The latter, in your situation, would probably be less expensive considering you probably aren't under warranty. Sorry...
