Question about JVC PD-42WX84 42 in. HD-Ready Plasma Television

1 Answer

Vertical portion pixelats then forms solid vertical lines. Problem intermitent but persistant. The tv is 2 years old, if its the lcd panel is it worth repairing? I think I have the same problem with a JVC Plasma, Just last week a vertical line showed up which changes colors with the background. Sometimes it disappears but I think its due to background color ( flesh tones on screen make it a vertical red line ) Anything I can do, or is this the end of a 4 year old flat screen?

Re: Vertical portion pixelats then forms solid vertical...

In some cases, there are minor defects in some parts of the screen. Points that do not light, points with
brightness different from that of the periphery, or points with color different from that of the periphery.
Some pixels will always be on or always off. Please note that this is not a malfunction. So what this says is that it's not the Plasma Cell problem, its more like a bad board inside. You will need more info like schematic and find out which area the bad part is in.

It sounds like a power surge has damaged the color controller and scan line section of the circuit board. The cost to repair is more then the replacement cost. Next time use a UPS for protection (battery back up for computer and electronics). Regards

Vertical and horizontal lines on screen

Check all connections that goes to panel from T'Con board for any loose connections. Re-seat them once and check. If the fault still persists, contact the authorized service center. T'Con as well as panel should be suspected. If you wish to get some idea about these kind of faults to LCD TVs, check this link. If you are not familiar with electronics, do not attempt to repair. Whether you suffer fatal electrical shock! Instead, contact the nearest service center.

Vertical red lines on screen

LCD correct?

There are 2 types of lines they may be showing, both requiring the replacement of the LCD Panel.

1. Delamination Lines- they are usually multiple vertical lines that do NOT flow from the top to bottom of the screen. Looks look water dripped down or something similar

2. Single/Multiple Vertical lines - This is normally 1 or maybe a few solid vertical lines that travel from Top to bottom. I belive in some cases they may only travel to the screen center.

In both cases, this will always show when the TV is ON. Even if there is no signal being input to the TV. There are other possibilities but these can be the most common. Both require a new panel.
