Question about Philips 42FD9934 42 in. HD-Ready Plasma Television

1 Answer

Black line down the middle of the screen

There is a back strip approximately 6 inches wide that appears on the screen. I have tried calling repair companies around my area and the 2 that Phillips recommended, but I have not been able to get someone to help me for weeks now. Can this be fixed by someone who is somewhat technical savy or can you recommend someone in my area who would be willing/reachable to fix it.

The problem you have is a bad PDP panel. the whole panel must be replaced by a qualified tech. if it is under warranty call philips and have them issue you a SR number, they will assiegn a tech to do the work. you must contact the tech they give and set up a pick up of the set( panels can not be replaced in home). if you already have an SR post it here, I'm sure if there is a authorized philips repair person on this sight and sees it will look it up to see if they are in your aera. most likely the repair places they gave are the only autorized repair places in your area.

A black line running verticall down the middle of


There is no invertor board on a plasma tv. The fault is the X address buffer board. This is located on the bottom of the screen and runs horizontally the whole width of the screen. If you remove the heatsink plate that covers the x address boards and you need to look at the screen ribbon at the same position as where the bar is (in the middle).Vary gently lift the Xbuffer ribbon lock and gently take out the ribbon.Clean the contacts very carefully with a fibre pen or an electrical cleaning fluid.Insert ribbon back and heatsink and check.Here is a picture of the board and ribbon

a 1 inch bar is associates with 1 ribbon fault. So if the bar was 3 inches in from the left of the screen, the faulty ribbon will be 3 inches in from the right working from behind the TV. If cleaning dont cure the fault, then the Buffer IC will be blown and order a new centre buffer board (you can buy off Ebay)

Vertical white line down centre of Soniq PT42SH plasma TV.


One of your "X" buffer boards is defective. In Panasonic plasma tv's they are located at the bootom of the set and connect directly to the plasma diplay panel via a thin ribbon cable. The board you want to replace will be directly in line with the discolored vertival line in the picture. The part number is on the circuit board and usualy starts with "tnp..." or "txp..."

This is a problem with the LCD panel. If the tv is out of warranty, I would call Samsung and see if they will pay for the panel and you pay for the labor. The panel is not cost effective to repair. If Samsung will not do anything you will need to buy a new tv.

A month from purchase you shouldn't even bother yourself with this. Their problem.... give the shop/samsung a call. If you have no reason to suspect any cable problem, and a different input device(other than the DVD) doesn't affect it, don't waste time and get on the phone. Good luck
