Hi,

This problem can be caused by several things,
-a connector on logic or address boards(in this case the lines would be localized to a half or less part of screen)
-a defective logic board that do not send the right address pulses to address board;
-a defective address board-but again it will impact only half or less of screen,
Tv needs a professional tech to be looked at.

There is 60% of chance you will need a new screen. The problem you may have is dead driver (part of a screen) or poor connection between plasma glass and ribbon wire connector.

There is some solution for it but not for long time. PDP panel and address driver on it not separated. If one of 26-40 drivers is going out, you need new screen.
It is a real question why manufacturers don't separate expensive PDP panel ($2000 and more) and $40 driver IC on it.
It is easier to replace small $40 part than the entire screen. So far they just ignore this issue.

Future plasma panel will be aluminum + glass + gas only.( no more drivers on it )

Other common problem with lines on screen -- buffer boards , high ammount of failure for these boards due to poor electronic design ( 1-- voltage needs to operate controllers on buffer board just to high for small SMD IC ,2---they are not strong enough to drive address electrode). In future it will be changed for more reliable parts .

Please leave me comment, if you need furthur assistance

Insignia LCD TV screen goes black until hit.


Try to follow the inverter to backlight connections---either a loose or damaged plug (look for any plug with tape on it at the plug first) or on the board that powers the lights a bad solder connection or connections where plugs connect.

With no make or model, it is a little difficult to try and decide what the problem might be but, I would disconnect the touch button panel on the TV, if it has one. That could be the fault.

The main coupling capacitor feeding the frame scan coils has failed or the output stage on the frame stage has failed due to dry capacitors or dry joints.
Fault finding and components are not a problem and yes it is very repairable. Any technician that knows how television works can repair this standard frame output stage.
I hope you find a good technician.

Vertical line on my 46" toshiba lcd tv


The only logical solution for the problems people are having for the toshiba regza's tv's is to get into a class action law suite..., they contiue to sell tv's with defective parts and refuse to help the customer that spent large cash to find out they last if your lucky 2.5 years, they are junk and anyone with one will soon find out./.......

Vertical color lines


I had the same thing happen to me this morning. I turned on the TV and it had colored vertical lines through the whole screen. I called Sony and they had me unplug the TV for about 15 minutes. This solved the problem. They said the boards just needed to be reset. It fixed the problem and I am happy with my Sony once again.

Monitor going black


HP's are known for bad capacitors in the power supply.
Replacing them is simple if you know how..not so simple if you don't.
Try your local TV repair centre. It should not cost alot to have the capacitors replaced.

Hope it helps =)
