    ONE: Check the line cord. Wiggle both ends near the molded part.

    TWO:Do a hard reset by unpluging all the cords for 4hrs and then plug it back.

    THREE:The whacking test is to just bang or smack the set with your hand
    on the back, side, top, etc., to see if there are loose connections or
    cold solder joints inside that are acting up. If so, the banging should
    knock them back to normal and the set should restore. You might have
    to use some creative banging and some have had to put a book or
    magazine under one corner to torque the chassis enough to get it to
    work reliably.

    If the problem still persists then like i said before,you will have to get it repaired by a technician.

    The TV is shuting itself off and on because the power supply is bad or the convergence circuit is bad.
    they are the most common to do this.the problem here is the age of the
    tv. a repair cost would range around $300-$400 this is a lot to put into
    a old set.
    You can try my troubleshooting steps first to see if that helps you.
    If it is new under warranty then please go for or repair or just replace it.This is the only solution to fix your problem.

    I don't need any details now.I have given the solution to your problem please go through it.

  • Priya darshan Apr 05, 2008

    As i said before Tv shuting off and on automatically is a common problem.This happens when the power supply is bad or when the convergence circuit is bad.
    Regarding the black stripe problem from top to bottom you can try resetting all of the cables and connectors. This is a
    communication problem between the processing board and the display or
    the display is bad. Lets hope for the bad connection.

Check the connections on the flat cables to the screen. Be sure first to disconnect the power supply from the x and y sustain boards before you disconnect any of the flat will burn the cables from the stored energy in the power supply, also check cables on c boards at bottom of screen. If this does not fix probably bad panel.

Samsung plasma TV, half screen is blacked out

Well, as per my last posting, I thought I would share. The problem of the bottom half of my 42 inch Samsung Plasma blacked out - meant a trip to the local TV repair shop. I have to say, they were great. I took it in and they were able to fix it after replacing a part - had my TV back in about a week. Cost was approx. $300. This was well worth it, considering how much I had paid for this TV only a few years ago. I had the repair done last month and so far, it's been great. Sorry, but I can't remember the name of the part.

Faulty JVC PLASMA DISPLAY MONITOR model number GM-P420E Left side has a black line approx' 6-8cm wide from top through to bottom. How can this be repaired?

Does it have a buffer board? If so, check the IC burnt on the buffer board. If bad, replace the buffer board. Check the flexible connector exactly below or above the black line. Is it inserted correctly? Does it have an IC on the flexible cable? Is it brunt? If so, you need a panel. If the buffer board is OK, then you will need a panel
