Samsung Plasma 42" TV Screen problem

I have a Samsung Plasma TV Model# SPN4235, 2 months ago a black vertical line appeared (no video info) at about the centre of the screen. Replaced the Logic board and the G Buffer board that corresponds to that particular area of the Panel and the line is still there. Any ideas what other board I need to replace or if the Panel is bad?

Hi, I've purchased a 2nd hand LG 42" Plasma TV set

Usually black lines in a flat panel indicate an error or problem in the video board. A service professional can hook up to the tv and better diagnose the issue.

Samsung 42" Plasma -Black vertical line when turned on.

It sounds like an Intergrated Circuit (IC) has fried. Even on a good day, this is not something you can attack at home. As a tech (and as an owner of that model samsung), I'd need a map & tools to know what's going on. Your best bet in this situation is to contact Samsung and let them recommend an authorized service center in your area. Sorry I can't be of more help, but this is a rather serious problem.

You will definately want to call LG and have them refer you to an auth. service center for warranty repair. This is either a failed scan bd or mayber even a bad plasma panel and there is nothing simple for a problem as you describe.
