Question about LG DU-42PY10 42 in. Plasma HDTV
We've had our LG DU-42PY10x for 2 years and today an inch thick red vertical bar appeared on the left-hand side of the screen. Any ideas why this is and how to get rid of it?
Follow-up. I found the slip on which the LG tech wrote down the part number for the board to fix the vertical red stripe. I was mistaken in my previous post. It was not the Z-Drive board. The board you want is:
X DRIVE BOARD; Part 6871QRH043A
Type in the part number in a search engine and yuo will find multiple places to purchase. Ebay may be the cheapest. That's where I got another part which got my picture back. I did not buy this part myself because now that I have my picture back, I do not want to screw it up, so I live with the red stripe.

You need a new "Z drive" board. I do not know the part number, but you may want to look on discount-merchant.com. I have the same problem. My TV is out of warranty and I had the local LG authorized servicer come out to check it out. I had another problem as well. I paid the $120 service call charge but did not let them try to fix the TV. Each board was over $100 and you would have to pay in advance, plus about a $300 labor fee. The service tech gave me the part numbers. I purchased from ebay a board to solve the other problem (Y drive board-top). I installed it myself and it worked; however, I did not attempt to buy or replace the "Z Drive" board related to the problen you have. Apparently, this board is on the bottom center of this TV and is behind the main board that you would see behind the small lower panel in the center bottom. The tech said it was hard to get to. If you want to give it a try, be careful because you would have to remove the main board. He wrote the actual part number down for me, but I cannot find it. If I do, I will post it.
