Nakamichi Plasma VU50P black stripe

Our Nakamichi plasma tv (VU50P) has developed a black stripe in the upper lefthand corner - about one foot long and one inch wide. Something burned, as there was some smoke the day it did this. Is it fixable?

Yes all set or fixable, you will need to order the y board, or driver board this is the power supply supply the defflection to the screen. I have tried several time to try to fix them, and didn't have luck at all, just a wast of time, there waxed and most of the time can't take part's out because they also clued them.
This process is faster for them when the machine makes the board, parts don't move.
Y board just got one narmaly goes about $400 and up.
This is the reason why most people just toss out there set, and they get mad at the tech, don't know why, it's not there problem they don't make the board.

I would open the back cover to see were the smoke came from, you will see some burt mostfet's or resistors. The part # narmaly is writen on the pcb. Call them and ask them the price. You will see, why most set's or found at the grave yard.

I hope this help's

I have a philips 50pf7321d plasma tv and the screen suddenly split, half picture on each side of screen, and black bar inthe middle.

Black bar caused by a short IC on the ribbon of the plasma panel. Unfortunately it requires a new plasma panel. Cost of a new unit.

I have vertical stripe in the middle of the screen of my panasonic plasma tv

Generally speaking vertical stripes whether they are black or white can be caused by bad connections at the panel cables. If this set is under warranty, bring it in for warranty service. If you can, take a picture of the problem as well and have that with you. Moving the set to the servicer can sometimes "cure" the problem especially if it is a connection problem.
Keep us posted.

Black line down the middle of plasma tv screen. After it warms up the line disappears.

It sounds like a possible bad connection on the upper or lower drive board.
You could disconnect power, remove back cover (carefully it will have sharp edges) and disconnect the ribbon from the plasma panel to the circuit boards on the top or bottom of the panel.
these ribbons are held down with a lock type conector of different types. Inspect carefully before unlocking connector, once unlocked and ribbon is removed look for any damage to the contacts then reinsert ribbon and lock connector.
If this doesn't work then you will either need to replace to drive board or the plasma panel

Black vertical line 3inches in from the left on my fujitsu PDS4233W-H plasma screen

If the line is all the way from top to bottom, it could be your upper and lower buffer boards or your plasma display unit is bad. I suggest you contact a servicer for your brand.

Plasma tv has developed a black stripe in the upper lefthand corner, about one foot long and one inch wide.

This could be a bad thing, hopfuly only a driver board has failed and need replacment , Now for the worse case, the panel has failed. If thats the case it almost allways cost more to replace the panel than to replace the set
