It sounds like the dmd board may be defective but you can try rebooting the set and see if it makes the picture any better...
1 - Turn on the Tv.
2 - Press & Hold the up arrow key on the remote and then press the power button on the front of the Tv.
3 - Tv will reset & reboot

If the picture is the same it's probably the dmd board which is part of the "B" block assembly and I don't believe they're sold separately. The "B" block is about $1100.00 dollars.
Hope this helps!
Bill

Pink and green diagonal lines rollng across the screen??? panasonic 42" Plasma . Only purchased about 3 years ago - but been used very rarely.


Have you tried lifting the ground on the TV? That set has a grounded (3-prong) plug and sometimes sccrolling lines can be caused by a ground loop in your power lines.Are the green and purple lines very short, like just a few rows of pixels tall, or multiple inches, like 3 - 8 tall?

Problem with my Magnavox DVD player, DP100MW8, picture dark and lines across the screen


Hi, if the lines are diagonal sounds like it is set to progressive scan mode-which means if there is not a switch on back saying P/S and interlaced then you need to connect to T.V. with component video inputs ( indicated by red,green,and blue colored R.C.A. plug inputs) and Pan and Scan capable-then in menu setting select interlaced picture output. hope this was of use, good luck prodzilla

Red,green and blue lines across screen


I f these lines are slightly diagonal and they all showed up at the same time. you probaly have an open resistor in the ABL circuit. since your set is 13 yrs old, I would not put a penny into it.
You might take the front grill cover off and the panel behind it and find the little black box with 6 little controls 3 are for focus 3 are for screen turn the screen ones ever so slightly counter clock wise. the control in the middle is the green screen adjustment. If the green line goes away try the one labeled r for red and b for blue.

Picture Problems On 50 Inch Philips Plasma


You plasma still under manufacturers warranty. Most electronic devices have one year warranty.
The failure in your TV can only be corrected by repairing it.
I would suggest to call philips and ask them to find you an authorized repair center near you to get your TV fix under their warranty.
