Hi

Thanks for using FixYa. First of all do a hard reset by unplugging the TV for more than 4 hours and then plugging it back in and turn it on. If this doesn't work then there is a component failure which will require to be repaired.

The issue your TV is facing is occur due to some faults like a poor solder connection and bad capacitors right where the display panel connects the main board or a component failure on your video or DMD board. In case there is a defective failure in the screen, then complete panel replacement is required. But in the instant case it might be due to faulty video or DMD board. Either way it will need to be attended to by a technician if the reset fails who can isolate the problem and main cause of this condition by testing the device.


If the set is under warranty or any extended warranty, check it to save the cost of repair which will be imminent in case the reset fails which in any case will be around $300 for a poor circuit joint trace and fix or even more if the screen is defective or the VID/DMD fix is required. Therefore, before seeking the assistance of a technician, you should try the hard reset as illustrated above.

Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.


Thanks
Rylee

Electronic tech needs help this tv only half of picture is showing what could be the problem i wants to fix it myself


Hello Danyell,
According to the model number you provided you have a 42" Insignia plasma TV. The problem you reported with having just a blank black screen on the lower half is due to a bad lower buffer board or also called a lower scan board. The part number is LJ92-01739C and if you Google this part number you can find these online and also find some sites that may show a short video on how to replace it. Price of this board looks to be about $35. Also of note is you will find that this part number is a Samsung part number which means your Insignia TV has a Samsung plasma panel in it so the associated circuit boards will also be Samsung parts.

VIZIO P42 plasma, half screen ok, other half showing blank


First you have to check if voltage and data are ok at the Y sustain board and the Y driver boards are not running hot. Even if you know how to replace these panels you must have a scope to adjust the v-set up and v- down. Not just a simple PNP. Trouble shooting a plasma is not a short time process to do it correctly. Please let a service center look at it for you.

Philips flat screen tv


It may be a problem with a cheaper HDMI cable. If the cable is too long or if the cable is of a cheaper quality, you may be able to solve the problem with a larger and shorter "pipe"

Half screen activated only


When only a half screen is produced, it is usually a upper or lower buffer board, if the top half is blank then it is the upper buffer, and of course if it's the bottom half then it's the bottom buffer board

Problem with plasma tv


Something in the path to drive the other half of the screen has failed or is broken. Need some basic troubleshooting information in order to be any more specific, but I've seen this problem before with NEC plasmas. If still under warranty better use it Good luck
