Question about Panasonic TH-42PX60U Television

1 Answer

Large colour lines / bands on screen

Hello. I've got a problem with my few years old TH42PX60 Panny plasma and I hope someone on here can help.

Recently some coloured lines have appeared on screen from top to bottom just over mid-way across the screen and it's extremely annoying to say the least. These lines seem to change colour from blue to yellow to red and appear to flicker as well. Sometimes the lines turn to black, showing a completely black band on screen. What is causing this? It is not interference and I've checked connections to the TV. They appear on both analog and satellite AV channels and they appear a few minutes after switching on the TV.

I've posted images for reference on imageshack (link included).

I've noticed the purple snakes issue a few times on my set but it wasn't too bad so I've not bothered to contact Panasonic about it but I'm worried that this recent issue with the coloured lines may be related? Does anyone think Panasonic would fix this issue for me even though the TV is a few years old now? I thought that a plasma should last a little longer that this as it was so expensive.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

It sounds like your TV may need degausing.
Is your TV situated near to any loudspeakers or other devices with large magnets inside them? Or has anyone been near your TV screen with a magnet???
You need to try to get the screen demagnetised (degaussed). Many TV engineers have a degausing coil that could do this. It only takes around 20 seconds at most.
Some TV's like Mitsubishi have a DG button on the remote, that does this function without the need to call out an engineer! It only needs one press of the button every few years!

Green vertical line on videocon 42inch plasma tv


Hello Depending how wide the line is their could be two possible causes.
I have two questions for you.
1. How wide is the line.
2. Does it run from top of screen to bottom of screen?
If the line is thin a single strait line then it is possible the PDP has gone Bad (Panel). (Screen). The screen will to be replaced.
If the line is at least 2 or more inches wide then its a buffer board which can be replaced. LG calls this board Hand insert Boards or display driver boards..

LG PLASMA TV WITH COLOURED LINES OVER SCREEN


If the Video (Picture/Pix) is gone but you can hear the Audio (sound), then it could mean the YSUS PCB Assembly is gone/kaput/finish. Can replace the PCB, not repair the PCB due to timing circuitry involve. Cost maybe roughly $500 depending where you located. The PCB is located on the left hand side of your TV when you are facing the back (Back open). Might find 3-4 brown flex membrane connecting to the plasma panel. The PCB has a silver or black aluminum heatsink (big) on it.
Good Luck.
