Could be as simple as reseating one of the ribbon cables. If not the board that controls that quadrant needs to be replaced. No way to tell without disassembly. Panasonic parts are readily avaliable your local panasonic servicer should have them in stock.

There will be a fault with the plasma screen, you will have a dual scan type which is why it only covers half the screen. It is possible the flat ribbon connector to the screen internallly may have become loose7 needs to be re-fitted securely, but most often it is a replacement screen is required.

Panny TH-42PZ80U Plasma TV No display on Power-up


I had this same exact issue. Panasonic sent a repair tech to my house since I was still under warranty. The tech was able to fix me up in about 10 minutes. He replaced the "brain" or A-board and now I'm back in business. This is NOT a power supply issue. The brain is the circuit board that has all the inputs attached to it (component, hdmi, etc...).

hope this helps!

TV Screen Stripes


NOt very clear.....

Multiple stripes all over the screen? Vertical or horizontal?

If it's only like an inch vertical lines put a mark on the cabinet where exaclty the line is, turn off the TV then open the back, you'll see lots of ribbon wires (gold color) from the plasma panel it self going to buffer boards, using the mark find the closest ribbon wire where the line is showing then remove and clean the contacts, make sure to reseat it properly when putting it back otherwise you'll just add more lines or black bar on the screen if pins are not seating properly.
But do not be afraid if the lines get worst just turn the power off right away and reaset the ribbon wire till you get it correctly.

CAUTION;
DO NOT try to do this while the TV is on oherwise you'll burn COF (Chip on film) on the panel and you'll end up replacing the whole PDP.

Good luck!

42" Panasonic Plasma - Vertical red stripe 6" from left side


We originally had a red stripe roughly 3" wide running vertically on the ride edge area of our Panasonic 52" Viera plasma tv. It has now been joined by a solid black stripe of the same width running from the top to the bottom. Living in Germany and purchased at local PX long enough ago that the warranty is likely expired. Now what?

Hitachi 42EDT41 plasma model-1" black stripe on right side


This is an old post but maybe it will help others. You will have to take the back off of the TV. On the bottom you will see ribbon cables coming from the screen and connecting to 3 PC boards. Take the screws out that holds the cable down. Underneath you will see 4 resistors marked 100. All you have to do is re-solder the resistors and your vertical line will be gone. You need to be good at soldering or you could damage the ribbon. The only ones that you have to re-solder is the ones in line with the lines on the screen.

Panasonic TH-50PX75U HDTV Plasma


I would suggest to call the store to have the TV repair, because these failures do not go away; instead they will get worse in time.
Use the warranty coverage while you still have it.
