The actual problem is some of the components on some of the boards are showing signs of age (some of the values are changing slightly) this can be compensated for by adjusting your voltages (such as va & vs ) this take a little tech knowhow. or you can replace the y sus board but adjustments are necessary whenever replacing y or z control boards. hope this helps. i may know where to get boards if you need them.

Try josheling the TV with the help of someone (do not drop!). There are gasses that settle and sometimes this will work, as it did for me on my 52". Depending on the age, it may just need to be recharged.

LG plasma 50 inch tv with a fine vertical black line in the center of the screen that runs from the top of the screen to the bottom

Try changing the input device to something you are sure works. Switch off TV manually, switch off power, remove plug and retry after 48 hours. If problem persists, please refer it to a qualified service technician.

Hello. My LG plasma 50pc3d has had red pixels jumping around whenever there is black on the screen, but has always cleared up. Today a vertical red line appeared, 1pixel thick, running from top to bottom....

Pixels on a plasma TV are from the zustain boards. You might have one or both of them about to go out. Horizontal lines are most likelly one of your buffers or the screen itself might be going bad. You can buy the sustain boards by part number that you can get from the board itself from

Dots on screen

The snowy dots and dots are typically from a poor signal going into the TV.

If there are colored pixels that stay lit all the time (like a red pixel and never goes away) and for any input, that’s called a stuck pixel.

A stuck pixel may be caused by a bad Y-Sustain, Y-drives, Z-sustain, and or a bad plasma panel.

Good Luck.
