    I guess it is a burn.  A black line that is vertical and not noticeable till we put on an hdtv channel.  Line is right at edge of the regular viewing screen.  Rather annoying and I'm wondering if the other side will do the same.  How to avoid??

There is no real solution for burn truly is a discoloration of the phosphors that make the picture..some times you can lessen it by displaying a pure white screen for a long period of time, but this really just burns the entire screen so it is not as noticable

Two vertical black lines on the screen of my ps50b430

Unless someone played with the TV and disconnected the plasma display from the address buffer boards that go under the screen the prospects aren't good.

All vertical lines in all plasma TVs I have seen are operated by chips embedded in the fabric of the display as well.

When they fail they'd either short or burn open.

In the first case they'd prevent the TV from coming up, in the second they'd typically manifest as either black or a random color vertical line like you have.

This is not repairable...sorry.

The odds of this being something else is fairly minimal in my opinion.

Please don't kill the messenger...

I want to save my picture files on the cd or dvd tape but i cant transfer it.

You need a burning software to burn your picture files, music, or video.
You can use NERO Burning ROM. Download it from HERE. You can use the "Data Burning" Feature in it to transfer your files into CD or DVD.

  1. Check your computer to see that it has a CD or DVD drive that is capable of burning CDs. This drive may be built into your computer or an external drive. Either type should work equally well.
  2. Make sure you have a CD that can be burned. There are two types of CDs that you can use.
    1. A CD-R (Compact Disc-Recordable) is a Write Once Read Many (WORM) optical medium. This means that once the disk is burned it can not be erased. This type disk is usually used for permanent storage. For example; a music CD, a picture CD, or any other type of data that you want to keep permanently.
    2. A CD-RW (Compact Disc ReWritable) is a rewritable optical disc format. This type of disk can be burned, erase, and then burned again. This type disk is usually used for temporary data storage.
  3. Decide on the type of CD you plan to burn. There are many different types of CDs that can be burned and how you proceed depends on which type you are going to burn. The major types of CD that can be burned are:
    1. Music. This type of CD is the type of CD that is normaly burned for use in a home or automobile CD player.
    2. Data. This type of CD is most often used to store files that can be used by a computer. This type of CD can not be used in a standard home or automobile CD player. They are formatted using the "ISO9660" format, which cannot be read by a standard CD player.
    3. MP3. This is a data CD containing only mp3 compressed music files. Because it is actually an ISO9660 data CD, not all CD players will be able to play it. This type of CD can contain a much larger number of songs than a music CD but can only be played on a computer or CD player specifically designed to play MP3s.
    4. Disk image. A disk image file is a file that contains an exact copy of a disk. The most common type of Disk image is an .ISO image. Disk images are usually used for storing an exact copy of a CD on a computer. By using a computer, one can burn a CD from an .ISO image and create a usable CD.
    5. Ripping. Ripping a CD is the process of taking the audio off of one CD and either storing it on a computer or burning it to a second CD, thereby making a copy of the first CD.

  4. Decide on the software you want to burn your CD with. There are many different programs that are designed to burn CD's. Some are built into the computer's operating system, while others are individual programs. These programs range from very simple to very complex. Some of these are free, while others have to be purchased.

  5. Burn your CD. Burning your CD is as simple as running the software that you are going to burn your CD with, putting a CD into your CD burner, selecting the data to be burned, and then telling the program to burn the CD

What are the possible disadvantages of computer monitors?

Monitors, otherwise known as displays or screens, currently come in two formats: LCD and Trinitron ("the boxy thingy").
LCD pros: Flat, low radiation (as far as I know) LCD cons: displays can either come with or develop "dead pixels" - pixels that remain a solid color or display black, are very fragile - pressing the display surface is not "healthy" for the display
Trinitron pros: deep color Trinitron cons: relatively moderate-to-medium radiation
Both types of displays can suffer from "screen burn" - if an image is displayed for too long (several hours/days) it will permanently "burn" itself into the display and be visible at all times.

Mitsubishi WS-65313 Screen burn-in

IF you have the area on either side of the picture used in the 4x3 burned---it is now burnt into the phosphor of all three picture tubes this set uses.

The real problem here is most of these sets the default setting for contrast or "picture" (same thing) is 100% and this is what burns fixed images into the tubes.

Pretty stupid, but that is how they are made--the black background in later models was replaced with a light gray one to try to prevent this.

If you do not have a warranty live with it--the cost of the three tubes would be about 900 dollars plus labor to replace them and adjust the set.

It takes less than 100 hours of use with the 4x3 up to cause this kind of problem, just like putting a fixed image on any projection set with full contrast and brightness set full--the damage is permanent.

I have replaced tubes in sets like this and when you get the tube out you can see the BURN in the phosphor.

I am sorry to give you bad news but based on your description this is what you have.

If this helped you rate this solution as I do this here for free.

TV: bright line across black screen for several hours.

vertical output ic needs to be resoldered. careful leaving that bright line displayed on the screen as this will cause a permanent phosphor burn into the tube. this can not be corrected once burned unless you replace the tube. mch

Permanent horizontal line approx. 4" from top of screen

if this line is in the picture, that is possible burn in screen. if you have a black bar at the top or faint white lines that come down from top this is caused by defective filters in vertical circuit or bad vertical output. mch

Nec plasmasync 50MP2

Lol, I'm not a Guru but I am a Wiz, so I can help. Usually, those lines you see, are from the burning of a channel. It's when the plasma gases inside of the screen stick to the screen and don't come off, it's permanent. Unless your T.V. type has on the menu a Screen Burn Protection like a 50 inch Samsung I have. The only reason it burns is because bright white lines in front of a dark background. Usually HD channels have small icons so they don't stick in the screen, so unless it's under warranty, you can take it back, but if not, then sorry. You can't do anything with no warranty or receipt.
