Question about Daewoo DP42SM 42 in. HD-Ready Plasma Television

Vertical green lines on screen

I bought the lvery lastest Panasonic 42" plasma HD television only a few weeks ago. (It's still under guarantee). Today I noticed, for the first time, some light green vertical lines, extending down, perhaps 7" from the top, on the left side of the screen. I turned the TV off, and then on again, and the lines were still there. I then left the TV off for an hour - I then unplugged it, plugged it in again, and turned it on once more - and the lines had disappeared, and everything was back to normal. What caused the green lines to appear? Is there a fault with the plasma screen? Could this be related to a buffer module, Y-board, logic-main board, etc? (I'm not techncially minded with regard to plasma televisions, by the way!)

IF THE LINES ARE ON LEFT SIDE ITS THE LEFT BUFFER BOARD AND VICE VERSA THEY ARE ON THE BOTTOM OF YOUR TV HOPE THIS HELPS YOU OUT

Green vertical line down the screen!


Hello,

Most likely the failure of the Screen.

If you purchased the product new, and have the receipt Panasonic will repair it FOC from what I understand, at least 3 years, your TV is no where near that old yet.

If you bought it, but don't have the receipt.....

Vertical lines across my entire screen


My 42" Samsung Plasma HDTV HP-R4252 has a 2" vertical strip of green pixels down the right side of the screen.

My 3 year warranty with Circuit City expires in Nov 2008.. so I hope I'm covered.. can't call until the morning.

Samsung said it might be a logic board problem.. but they want almost $2000 to fix. I might as well buy another TV if Circuit City can't fix it.

Hitachi 42" Plasma 42EDT41


Had the same problem.  Was quoted $800 to fix.  Searched the internet for 6 months and found this thread on avforums.com

Read through all the posts.  Very simple fix, but you have to have some mechanical inclinations or you can cause more problems than you started with.  I was up to 5 of the black lines, but decided to attempt the soldering these guys did and fixed it all for the cost of a soldering iron!  Even if you decide not to attempt it, it gives you somewhere to start to tell a technician.
