42" LG RZ42PX11 Plasma - rainbow lines on whole screen but sound

Hi,

I turned my TV on this morning (after it working fine last night) and instead of a picture there are vertical rainbow lines on the whole screen but I can hear the sound fine.

Can anyone help?

    Hi. Replace the lower Y driver PCB's and buffer board as well as the YSUS board. When you get the price of spares for a BIY job you may also consider the land fill option wher all plasmasmade by LG belong.

    Hi Philips 26pf3320/10 lcd tv
    Can anyone point me in the right direction to identify the faulty circuit board /part based on the description of my fault as this will allow me to buy & replace the part.

    Picture illegible as very fine vertical lines down screen have color content & very faint picture in the background, I have attached 2 photos. The horizontal white lines come every time I turn it on then it slowly turns to a vertical rainbow as the 2nd pic shows.

    Strange thing is after this fault arose it has returned to normal with a perfect picture on 3 occasions when I was messing about with the remote control, but that's been twice in about 100 times I tried it.

    I am familiar with electronics and have checked all circuit boards with magnifying glass and cannot find any blown components.

    I have also downloaded a service manual which shows you how to get the led to blink to sequences to id error codes but they are fast & hard to id the correct qty/sequence.

    Thanks Andy

Hi there.its likely that the lower y-drive panel has died.this is a very common problem with this model.the easy way is to remove the panel from the set completely,power it up and you should be greeted with the top half of the picture.this means ic failure,usually the bottom one for some odd reason.not replaceable unless you have the gear,these ics are available from dalbani(nikkai)for those interested.be extra careful with the four ribbon cables when removing/refitting.damage to these writes off the display panel.hope this helps somewhat,regards,steve.

The screen on my TV lights up but there is no video signal. I have replaced all boards and still no video. I put the screen in a LGA TV and I have the same problem. I have audio but no screen video. Now I am at a loss. Is it possible that there is a defective screen?? Thsnks Ragan

Mines a LG RZ42PX11 it intermittently gets a black vertical line down the middle of the screen.


Hi I have a LG RZ42px11 there are 6 vertical thick black lines running down the middle off the screen, when cold the TV seems OK but if it has been on for around 10mins or on standby the lines stay on screen.

Thanks.

This is almost certainly the device that sends electricity to the the plasma in the panel after failing. Bring to your local repair shop and expect to pay 300-400 parts and 100-200 labour.

Most likely what happened is one of the capacitors went bad. When a capacitors goes bad it produces a popping sound. This could be an easy and cheap fix if you find the bad capacitor or capacitors. The bad capacitor will have a bulging top most likely on the power board but could be anywhere.

LG RZ42PX11 PICTURE PROBLEM.


I do not know who was helping you before but the problem you are having can be caused by three boards in the tv each by themselves or in combination. Those are the control board with part#6871QCH053G, the Y- board part #6871QYH036D or the Z-board part#6871QZH041B. Without being able to do voltage and signal measurements directly for you, the Z-board is likely the culprit here. But I will tell you that even experienced tv technicians find themselves swapping one or more of the boards until they fix the problem. I am assuming here of course that you have not had problems with your tv before. The part #s I have given you are for the improved boards that LG has assembled to take care of future similar problems and come with their latest training manual for technicians. God bless and good luck.

LG PLASMA TV WITH COLOURED LINES OVER SCREEN


If the Video (Picture/Pix) is gone but you can hear the Audio (sound), then it could mean the YSUS PCB Assembly is gone/kaput/finish. Can replace the PCB, not repair the PCB due to timing circuitry involve. Cost maybe roughly $500 depending where you located. The PCB is located on the left hand side of your TV when you are facing the back (Back open). Might find 3-4 brown flex membrane connecting to the plasma panel. The PCB has a silver or black aluminum heatsink (big) on it.
Good Luck.

LG Plasma picture probles


hi there. I have this same TV, and the exact same problem. Last night, i was playing around with it, took off the entire back of it to see if I could fix it. After a few minutes of tinkering, I found that if I apply pressure to the TV in a specific way, the left side of the picture comes back. Here's what I did: standing in front of the TV, I hold the top of it, in the middle with my right hand, and the upper left corner with my left hand. Then, I gently apply pressure, forward (away from me) with my right hand, and backwards (toward me) with my left hand. Sort of like trying to "bend" the screen. At some point, the picture comes back .. . the problem is, if I let go, then the colored lines come back . . . maybe one can mount it on a wall in such a way that the pressure is still there . .. i haven't tried. That's all I got.
