Re: balck lines

Yes, this is an LG/Zenith unit. You have one of two things going on here. 1) the X-driver board for that segment has failed (this is the board that the ribbon cable plugs into) or 2) the COF has failed on the ribbon itself. If you remove the two screws holding the metal plate that is attached to that ribbon, you will see components embedded in the ribbon. The ic may be visibly damaged or may have failed internally. Also, there are surface mount resistors on there too. Sometimes these open up, or are loose. Check for proper value and/or touch-up with soldering iron.
When neither of these solutions work, then the complete pdp display assembly will need to be replaced. Chances are the warranty company will replace the unit for the customer due to cost and/or part availability...Jeff :-) Recommend a trained person to check these

Panasonic viera TH 42PV60E, vertical balck strip with coloured line appear right of the screen (1/4th distance from right side boarder).

There are so many reasons for this fault to a Plasma screen. If you wish to get more details, check this link. Selecting the view option, either to Mosaic / Time slide, can be selected by the drop-down list, at the top left of the display window, will make surf easy. You can also do a search, by type in the brand name/model number/IC used, in the search box at the top right of the display window. Screen-shots to defective plasmas are given with illustrations. You can see, and compare it to that of your TVs' and can get an idea, or can reapair it by yourself.

Sudden loss of color

If you are sure your cables are tight and not defective, then your main board is defective or your signal source is defective.

Color is terrible. don't know what to adjust the settings to to make it better

turn the coulour off completely and you should see a perfect balck and white picture, this is made up by mixing red green and blue,, if it is not balck and white you may have lost a primary colour, if this is the case you will obviously never have a watchable colour picture, loss of a primary colour will need a visit from a techie.

I was watching a video and then the screen went balck and said "no signal". I pressed some buttons on the remote and it looks like I set it back to factory settings and now I have no channels. I have tried...

hi, if you see a message "No signal" try to check if your on the right input. Use your remote control to find the right input, youll see an INPUT or SOURCE button use that to find the right input. hope this helps, goodluck.
