Question about Philips 42PF9956 42 in. HD-Ready Plasma Television
We bought a Philips LCD 42PFL7962D TV afew days ago. The quality of the picture when we're watching DVDs is great, but when we watch tv there are vertical lines going down the whole of the screen. Can anybody help?
Get the professional, although this won't be an expensive fix... You likely have one or more caps in the vertical circuit that are going bad... A cap acts like a battery in a circuit taking on voltage and releasing it at an even rate. When they go bad their ESR (equivilent series resistance) rises and the cap takes longer to reach it's op temp and work properly...
A tech with an ESR meter will easily find and repair this one...
no other issues only a minor problem..
