Question about Polaroid PLA-4240 42 in. Plasma Television

1 Answer

I turn it on, everything can be read and functions but there are lines

Lines lines lines. Horizontal lines across the screen at even intrevals about ever 4 mm the entire screen. I just bought the tv today and this is what I've seen. I've never had an hdtv before but I'm thinking this isn't normal. I haven't looked at a channel yet, because I noticed this one the blue screen, no signal screen, and menu screen

It's either the main or digital board - - - do not walk run back to where you bought it and get a refund... Then buy an upper end unit with one of the major brands... It will cost a bit more but you'll be MUCH happier...

    The there's a cable or connector loose in the unit and that can cause you some real problems... It may look good right now but it's a temporary relief..

Limes across screen when first turned on, by turning off and on sometimes fixes it, what could cause that problem?


If the lines are colored or even look 3d it is a convergence problem--if other lines it will depend on what they look like and what the model number is.

I turned the set on and everything was fine, then the screen went black and mullti-colored horizontal (arched) lines were flashing across the screen. The next day I turned the set on and everything was fine for about 5 minutes then the problem reoccures again. Haven't looked for solutions till now.

Distorted white lines running across screen


Disconnect the monitor from the computer and turn the monitor on
it will display a diagnostic colorbar are the lines still there.
if not they are likely a cable or video card.
if they are still there have a tech evaluate the monitor.

Horizontal 'pinstripe' lines on all channels


sound like the screen control on the flyback is set just a little too high. the flyback has the red wire attached to the tube. the flyback has 2 small adjustable controls. if you look close enough 1 is marked focus & on is screen. turn the screen slightly to the left & look at your picture. the screen is like a master brightness & if it's up too high you will see what is called retrace lines. good luck.
