    I have the same problem. The screen is split also when using the built-in menues. It also looks like the color-dephts are reduced. Have anyone tried to fix this, and if so at what cost?

The display processor, and or the panel itself, and or one of the ribbon interconnects, may be the fault. This can be rather expensive to service. You can send the set to a Sony service center for a quotation. You may find it very expensive to service.

Sony pfm 42b1 negative picture


Hi,

I have a Sony PFM-42v1 and it does the same thing, look in your tv menu for picture inversion, usually under screen saver. What it actually does is reduce the chance of screen burnin. By reversing the image it sort of resets the hot areas, brightest colours and the cooler areas being dark colours, switches them around ( negative ). This cools the hot spots and heats up the cold spots.

There should be a option to turn it off, mine and I guess yours as a default is ON, mine has the ON, timer and OFF options.

Hope this helps, please let me know if you need more info.

Sony PFM-42V1 bottom half of the screen is a blurry ghost image of top


The Sony Plasma designe not to repair at component level your problem I believe in YSUS PCB you can adjust a few variables resistors on this PCB make sure to mark on the spot before turn you can alway go back to original point, set your plasma on normal channel turn the variable resistor slowly and observe the picture any spot will effect the picture if you can not adjust you need to replace a new PCB
Let me know how you go

1inch line from top to bottom


The black line indicates that either the flex cable that connects the panel to the buffer board has come loose or the panel is bad. Try to reseat the connector located inline with the symptom seen on the screen, if it's loose or inserted crooked, the panel will show this problem. Good luck. Joe Weibel customelectronics.org
