    Well thanks for your input - but when you pay $1500 for a product like this, would you also pay an additional $825 for extenede warranty???



    I expect a prodcut like this to work for atleast 5 years if I am paying that much for it!!



    The 1 year warrnty is up.

    I have got some response from a local TV repair man - he said the Y buffer board is most likely bad - is this something I can order myself and replace myself??



    THANKS!

From the looks of the pics you had I see a scan problem if it's a plasma tv. I hope you have warranty coverage. It will be expensive if you don't.

    I also found out in this repair business that the squeekiest wheel gets the most grease. In other words if you ( the customer/consumer) keeps calling and complaining about the product then eventually they will want to make the customer a happy camper.

    It's called the Y-Main board. The Y-buffer (upper and lower) boards produce a different type of problem. You can probably order it. But to install it is kind of risky since you're dealing with high voltage. I suggest someone who actually repairs plasma TVs.

I have a 2" black line at the top of the tv. And also smaller black lines across the middle of the tv.


Dear Jeff,
It seems like the Horizontal IC in your TV is dying. This and the Vertical IC is responsible for displaying images on your TV. (Look at your TV through your Phone Camera and you will see upward scrolling lines.This is the Horizontal IC in action.)
I would strongly advise you to get your TV repaired immediately.
