Plasma TV fault - Goodmans

I have an old-ish Goodmans 42 inch plasma which appears to have bitten the dust. When powered on the screen is blue with an 8" white band on the RHS of the screen. This bansd swaps to the LHS of the screen when I press the "Menu" button.Very strange.

Is this a common fault or worth fixing, or do I bin the telly?

The display also has a sticker on the back saying LGPDP42V6

SOURCE: Black Vertical line appeared on my Daewoo Plasma

Bad connection somewhere along the bottom or top of the panel, there are boards most likely along the bottom of the screen that control vertical drawing, a connection that breaks as it is heated up sounds about right. check the connectors along the bottom. Be very careful because if you wreck em the screen is junk. The connector that will be at fault will be in direct line with the black bar.

I had the Same issue. on a 50PF9431D/37 set. Many Plasma Set's use a LJ44-00118A PS-505-PH Power supply from Samsung. Known to have this common problem. If you can, or have a friend that can Solder components?. Unplug your set remove the back panel & locate your power supply. It will be the PCB in the center of the set just above the Video/Audio connections. Is a Link to a photo of the PCB. Make a note of the locations of all cable connections then unplug them all. Un-install PCB, Check all Fuse first. I believe their is 5 or 6 of them on the PCB. Then replace the two 3300uf 10v 105C Radial capacitors at C8060 & C8059. Look to see if the Caps are deformed and or split at the top. The location of the caps are in the Lower bottom edge of the PCB. A local shop may Carrie them if not, digi-key has them. Part # Total cost was $7 with S/H.
