Question about Televison & Video

1 Answer

Plasma Problem 1 year 1week after buying the plasma(just out of warranty). The screen started to display a 2 inch wide vertical stripe on the very left of the display. The stripe would come and go randomly. It would flicker between different colours, solid colours and a rainbow effect. 2 years on the screen started to show a colour pattern which would radiate from the center of the screen. It would make skin tones really blotchy, like the person was sun burnt and missed with the sunscreen. This problem would also come and go. It would also get worse the longer the set was on. 2 years and 3 months. Now the display has finally died, it start with the whole screen flickering from perfect to total black out. Powered down then back up screen would be good for 10 minutes then blackout again. Is it worth sending to a repairer?

It could be the Logic board or/and one of the Logic Scan board failure. Parts availability depends on maker and may cost any where between $250 - $500. Labour depends on shop. Hope that'll help you. Good luck.

Green vertical line on videocon 42inch plasma tv


Hello Depending how wide the line is their could be two possible causes.
I have two questions for you.
1. How wide is the line.
2. Does it run from top of screen to bottom of screen?
If the line is thin a single strait line then it is possible the PDP has gone Bad (Panel). (Screen). The screen will to be replaced.
If the line is at least 2 or more inches wide then its a buffer board which can be replaced. LG calls this board Hand insert Boards or display driver boards..

42" Panasonic Plasma - Vertical red stripe 6" from left side


We originally had a red stripe roughly 3" wide running vertically on the ride edge area of our Panasonic 52" Viera plasma tv. It has now been joined by a solid black stripe of the same width running from the top to the bottom. Living in Germany and purchased at local PX long enough ago that the warranty is likely expired. Now what?

Philips plasma tv vertical black stripe


Hi
If there is no picture behind the stripe and the edges are well-defined, then one of the display driver ICs has failed. Philips displays can be made by several manufacturers - usually Samsung. The ICs are bonded to the flexible ribbon in most cases, and replacement is an expensive specialist job - and in many cases is simply not possible.
A shadow on the picture is much better - usually due to interference.

Philips plasma tv vertical black stripe


Ok did this happen the first time u turn on the TV. ? If so u might have a ribbon cable disconnect from the logic or u might have a defective Plasma panel. If u have a defect like your describing the IC's on the panel short out and no longer work causing that section of the screen not to function. Only fix then is replace panel
