Its gonna be cheaper for u to buy a new TV than buy a replacement panel if your looking to buy one I highly doubt you will be able to find one under $1500 and thats not including the shipping charge for a panel that weights 80 lbs. Best bet is too buy a new TV.

I have a 42" Samsung Plasma. We have had it two years so the warranty just ran out. We have a half inch red line down the left side of the screen. Also, when the screen should be black, there are hints of...


ONE OF TWO THINGS, THE LINE COULD POSSIBLY BE FIXED WITH A SCAN BOARD, BUT NOT LIKELY, PROBABLY NEEDS A SCREEN REPLACED, THE OTHER RED STUFF CAN BE FIXED WITH A X-BOARD REPLACEMENT, BETTER OFF TO BUY A NEW TV

Blue vertical line thru picture


It is called "Thin vertical lines" and change colors depending on the background color.
It is fixable but there are several components that can show this sympton.

You will need a tech to fix it in order to save money (because you do not want to buy a board you dont know if will fix it).
Possible Solutions:
Replace Timer Control Board, if it is not fixed
Replace Sustain Board.

One of those boards needs to be replaced and I wrote the most likely first.

Issue with LG Plasma tv model # DU-42PX12X


Another "same probelm"

My set has encountered this magical 50/50 split screen and it seems to be quite a problem since I am not the only one researching this issue. LG was of no use because of course it is just out of warranty. Any solutions on fixing this or am I out of money in buying a new plasma?

I have a 42 inches LCD TV and my son threw a hard object to it. It has lines from top to bottom and I want to know if it is fixable or not. Thanks, Claudia.


I'm sorry to be the one to tell you that once the screen is broken, is better to buy a new TV because the repair might exceed the price of a new one.
Sorry.

Display problem for magnavox 42" model 42mf230a/37


first make sure its not an input problem or from an external source.Disconnect all inputs and see if lines are present with no inputs to tv.if lines affect menu and or ON SCREEN DISPAY (top) there is a good chance (SSB) board could be bad .I would start with this board first ,lvds cable (second) and last the logic board (comes only with new LCD)
