You will need to replace the Y Buffer boards. If you are looking at the back of the set, the Y-main is to the left. Connected to this board are the upper and lower buffer boards.

They control the top half and bottom half of your picture.

Replace those, and you should be fine.

Please note that it is possible for the Y-Main and/or the Panel itself have caused these boards to fail. Replacing the Y-Main might be within a reasonable cost, but replacing the panel is not worth the cost.

You could Start with just Cleaning Mirror and top of All 3 Tube Lenses remove Back and try cleaning out All dust and Dirt with Thin Paint Brush then Remove Front Top and Bottom Panels and then you can Clean Mirror and Top Of All 3 Tube Lenses Then Put Back Together and see what Kind Of Picture you have then! Turn Color Off on Menu See if you Have a Black and White Picture?

FOGGY-HAZY PICTURE


The contrast setting should always be more than the brightness setting, it's purely common sense to have the black levels dark and the white levels light. I advise your brightness to be 40, and your contrast to be set to 60.

You shouldn't alter the hue, as most manufacturers would have spent significant time balancing this anyway, so set this to 50 and leave it alone.

The saturation shouldn't be altered too much, the best bet is to set this to 55 and let it be. Also, the colour temperature shouldn't be changed atall, so set this to the default setting and leave it alone.

As for the sharpness setting, this should definitely be set quite low. I advise setting the sharpness to 40, and the reason for this is most people assume that the higher the sharpness the better quality and detail, and they're completely wrong.

If you do what I said, you should end up with a crisp, smooth and colourful picture.

Half picture shows up and top portion is black


The camera firmware should be reloaded, if this fails then the camera is likely beyond end user servicing and should be repaired by a professional.

The reason your only seeing bottom half is as the reflex mirror is opening upwards to expose the sensor ( traditional cameras opened the mirror then a shutter to expose film ) your cameras sensor is only registering or transferring the bottom half of the image because it is the image is registered bottom first to the top until the shutter closes and the mirror returns to resting position.

Your problem could be the result of firmware or a more serious issue.

3 colored lines


Hi,
Is the 3 colored lines always in the same location? Top to Bottom or Side to Side?
The plasma panel is bad if it is from Top to bottom and the 3 colored lines are always in the same location.

The Z Sus, Y Sus and Y buffers are suspect is the lines are not always in one location and it is from side to side.

Repair cost is about half of your purchase price if the plasma is bad. I hope your unit is under warranty. Best Regards
