Question about LG 60PS60 60 in. Plasma HDTV
We have a 7 star set top box, recently we see a vertical green line in the 42inch plasma videocon tv, we were wondering what could be the cause and how do we resolve this. Our plasma is around 2 years old so out of warranty. This vertical green line is in the left side of the plasma TV.Can someone guide whether we should use the TV or avoid using it till the problem gets resolved.
Hello Depending how wide the line is their could be two possible causes.
I have two questions for you.
1. How wide is the line.
2. Does it run from top of screen to bottom of screen?
If the line is thin a single strait line then it is possible the PDP has gone Bad (Panel). (Screen). The screen will to be replaced.
If the line is at least 2 or more inches wide then its a buffer board which can be replaced. LG calls this board Hand insert Boards or display driver boards..

SOURCE: I have a videocon 42
What you need is known as a "Z buffer" or "address buffer".
It is a board located UNDER the display.
Can't tell you the board number because you do not mention the TV model, but if you are up to replacing it yourself you better get to there anyway and see the model printed on the board itself.
There are usually two boards underneat in the 42'' models, sometimes three, but usually two.
You need to find the one located where the vertical line shows and replace it.
Replacement is not hard, but requires a bit more unscrewing because those boards are usually covered by metal shielding / heatsink, which usually has quite a few metal screws.
Other than that, though, it is not hard.

I had the same problem with a five year old 50" LG Plasma. I fixed the problem with a 11 dollar soldering iron from Radio Shack and about 2 hours of my night. You have to open the back of the tv and locate where the ribbon strips are attached to the screen. I beleive that on your 42" they will be on the bottom of the tv. Mine had 11 on top and 11 on bottom. Yours will probably have around 7 or 8 along the bottom. Mine was a little easier since I did not have to remove the control board. You unfortunately probably will have to remove it. It is not hard at all, just takes more time. Make sure to keep your screws seperated and remember where everything goes. On bigger jobs some tape and a marker are very useful. Put tape on the board and around the wires removed and leave a tail. This way tou will remember to hook them all back up. Once you find the ribbon strips you have to remove them one by one and look at what is behind the metal place. There will be 4 capacitors and 4 resistors. The tv manufacturers want you to buy new tv's every 5 to 10 years so they use a very cheap solder on their contacts. Use you soldering iron and re-heat the solder to liquify it again and thats it. Allow time to cool on each of the caps and resistors. It took me about 1 to 2 seconds on each side of these parts. I did use a dual wattage soldering iron from radio shack. Its is a 25 and 35 watt iron. I used the higher setting. I have pictures if you would like me to email them to you and show you what I did. Be careful removing the ribbon strips, I broke one of the clips that hold in the ribbon strip. That is costing me an extra 25 dollars off ebay but still for a free tv, its not bad.
