Bad panel. Just had my third panel looked at by the certified Panasonic repair guy. Each panel is $1000 and about $400 for the repair guy to install. This is probably more than you paid for the tv. I've had my tv for two years and this will be the third panel. The panel has a two year warranty. But beware, after the first year, you pay for the labor to install the panel. Good luck and take good notes, they will come in handy later.

The LCD display is bad. If it is past warranty it is time to buy a new monitor. You have a block of pixels that have failed.

How can I find 42pz80u schematic


Hi, If you are searching the schematic for this problem, I am sorry it will not help. Yellow vertical line is a problem with the panel and they do not provide details in the schematics.

Grey border down sides of picture while on AV1


Assuming it's not your device causing the grey lines, just change your aspect ratio settings. Each input has a different set of settings that you can change, so don't worry about messing up the settings on your HMDI 1 input for example if you change your AV1.

My plasma tv TH-42PZ80U has a one inch wide yellow strip down the middle of the tv. At some times it goes pink in colour. Can this be fixed and is it worth the while fixing.


First of all change the input to some other which you are sure works well. Then if the problem persists, this might need attention by a qualified service technician.

Panasonic Viera TH-42PV60H displays vertical lines on left side of screen.\r\nThese lines flickers and changes colors. Initially was about 2cm wide and now it is about 4cm.


Either LCD transistor got moist or the video chipset got condensation. Keep TV on standby to dry it out. Unless there is also mechanical damage to the lcd screen on the edge..

Panny TH-42PZ80U Plasma TV No display on Power-up


I had this same exact issue. Panasonic sent a repair tech to my house since I was still under warranty. The tech was able to fix me up in about 10 minutes. He replaced the "brain" or A-board and now I'm back in business. This is NOT a power supply issue. The brain is the circuit board that has all the inputs attached to it (component, hdmi, etc...).

hope this helps!
