42" Gateway Plasma TV

After 2 1/2 years a 2" horizontal black bar appeared on the right side of my 42" Gateway Plasma TV. Do you know what causes this and how to fix it myself? Just yesterday a second 2" horizontal bar appeared on the left side of my plasma. Can you help me. nyclubkid.com shows how to repair it yourself. But it seems that his 42" Gateway looks different from mines.

Vertical lines across my entire screen


My 42" Samsung Plasma HDTV HP-R4252 has a 2" vertical strip of green pixels down the right side of the screen.

My 3 year warranty with Circuit City expires in Nov 2008.. so I hope I'm covered.. can't call until the morning.

Samsung said it might be a logic board problem.. but they want almost $2000 to fix. I might as well buy another TV if Circuit City can't fix it.

Gateway TV


I have had the same problem on my gateway plasma for a year now. My 2nd TV just started to show similar defects on the screen. I can never get a straight answer as to what causes this problem yet it is a very common defect on these tv models (gateway) most accurate answer I got from gateway was that it is better to buy a new one.
