If you solder alot and work on small stuff ALL The time, then maybe you could resolder the ribbon cable resistors yourself. However if you get it too hot, or you don't know how to release the edge connectors, you WILL do more damage than good. You can very easily srew-up the ribbon cable then you have to replace the disply panel. I'd leave that to a professional. You must also remove boards and other parts to even get to the ribbon cables. Most do it your self tech's end up bringing in a T.V. that so butchered, I or no-one else will touch it. So keep that in mind.

Black line on plasma tv


hi all .ive had the same problem,a thick black line down screen.sometimes it flickers from top to bottom and other permantly in view.but i have solved it.forget your ic boards and taking apart tv.have you got either a ps3 or wii connected to tv.if so unplug power lead from socket and relocate in seperate socket.make sure the lead is completely free of any other leads and you might just find this works.i think the power lead creates some sort of frequency that the tv picks up .good luck hope it works

Black lines on plasma


The matrix controler or the matrix drive area is failing. The fix is to change the proper circuit boards, and then do the factory setup to match the board is necessary. In the worse case, it may be the display screen itself that has a failure occuring.

You will have to bring the set for factory service to have the work done. If the set is out of warranty, it may be expensive to service.

Black line in center of screen


These black lines on the plasma screens are very fixable.  There is a dry solder joint on a circuit board at the bottom of the plasma that needs resoldered.  There are 6 or 7 "ribbons" along the bottom of the screen that correspond to vertical sections of the display, so you just follow the black vertical line down to figure out which one is faulty.  I just performed this fix successfully on my first attempt on a Gateway plasma, but it will work on most plasma's, specifically Hitachi, gateway, LG, Hyundai, & Akai. I think they may all have LG boards, my gateway did.
I can't really describe very well what to do, but I assure you it is fixable.  If anyone is near nashville, I might be able to help you out.  My email is tomp2000@juno.com.
thanks,
ST
