Philips 42PF7320A/37 has horizontal lines thru the picture

My Philips 42PF7320A/37 has full picture and sound, but also has six equal horizontal bands through the picture. Each band (except the 5th one down) contains 16 horizontal lines that appear to be misplaced from other parts of the picture. Which board should I replace?

To start , ensure that the problem does not depend on sygnal input (from description it does not look this way, but you never know). Test different inputs using different cables.

If the lines are moving, then it is a voltage drop. Since volts is applied at different heights on the plasma panel, a voltage drop can cause colored lines that move across the screen. In this case, a defective voltage regulator, a faulty cable to plasma screen , or a defective sustain board can cause the problem.

If instead the picture has static bands, and they come up always in the same position, scrambling the image, then you may also have a problem on main digital controlled board, where the video signal is generated.
In that case testing will be more complex, and there is need to follow indications on service manual to test the chipsets on board.
Boards that must be tested are Logic main, Y main, ribbon cable to Y main, Y buffers (both), all ribbon cables between this boards.
Also a diagnostic procedure from service menu can help in finding the fault.

See testing diagrams at page 26, and parts location starting at page 7 of service manual below:

Why do i have red lines on my philips plasma tv?


if the lines are going horizontally across and look like someone took a thin magic marker and marked across the screen, you have one of two problems, either some scan ic's have failed or you have a flex cable coming loose from the panel. Either way it will require repair. If it is the flex cable the cost to repair will be beyond the tv's worth because the whole panel needs to be changed to fix this. If it turns out to be the scan ic's, they can be changed or the board the ic's are on may be changed depending on how the repair is approched by the tech. But the cost would be reasonable around 200 to 250.
Good luck

Not getting full pic on certain channels


I've seen this problem before. Try to adjust the horizontal settings in the tv. you should be able to adjust the picture up just a bit and it will get rid of the lines. also if you are hooked up thru component or hdmi you should be able to press the # button on your time warner remote to fill the screen. Hope this helps.
