Black line on Plasma Tv

We have a 42'' Maxent Plasma Tv that has black line coming from the top of the TV running down to the middle. The line is about 1'' wide and 10'' long. Right now the line is coming and going but seems to be staying longer each time. Can anyone shed some light on what is wrong with it? I think the TV is about 4 yrs old
Model Number is P420142X1
Product number is MX-42XM11

    The panel is most likely not a replaceble part, so yes shop for a new TV. Give to your kids (if any ) for video games.

    Try to buy the 5 year warranty on the next one.

I have a single thin horizontial black line six inches from the bottom of the screen. how can it be fixed.


Hi.

The line is probably in correspondence of the low Y buffer board, located inside the TV and connected to plasma display. In that case the board must be replaced to fix the problem. One of the symptoms of a defective low buffer board is a black line that starts from the bottom of the TV.

Regards.

hi all .ive had the same problem,a thick black line down screen.sometimes it flickers from top to bottom and other permantly in view.but i have solved it.forget your ic boards and taking apart tv.have you got either a ps3 or wii connected to tv.if so unplug power lead from socket and relocate in seperate socket.make sure the lead is completely free of any other leads and you might just find this works.i think the power lead creates some sort of frequency that the tv picks up .good luck hope it works

Vertical black lines appear intermitently


Does the line appear on just one input(cable,hdmi,video1,video2,ect) or on all of them? The reason why I ask is it may be just an issue with one input setting on the television and you may be able to use a different input for a temporary fix of the problem. Plasma telivisions run very hot and it may be overheating. Try using a small mountable fan above the TV pointed into the back heat vents and see if keeping it cooler keeps the issue from happening. These TVs are repairable but usually cost more to repair than what it is worth due to plasma TVs are very in-expensive now.
