When I try to access my DVD player I only recieve a 2 inch picture at the top of the screen,the rest of the screen is black. It's not the DVD player or the actual DVD - I went and bought a new player and the same issue occured but it worked when I attached it to another TV.

SOURCE: picture problem, half screen blank

On a plasma there are 2 buffer boards, upper and lower, it all depends which half of the screen is on as to which buffer to replace, the buffer boards are located usually on the left hand side if you have the back off the unit. You maybe able to reseat the ribbon cables and get the video back up

This is a known problem. Panasonic sells a jig to correct it. I had the same problem and bought the jig for $60. It plugs into a special port in the back of the tv behind a little door. You can read all about it here: http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showthrea... if you want, contact me by replying and I can mail you the jig temporarily for $10 plus S&H. You'll save money and it worked for me, i just need it back.

SOURCE: Panasonic TH-42PX60U PLasma - 1/2 screen blacked out

If the screen split is exactly 50/50 top/bottom You are not getting SU or Scan Upper drive.
These are lovely set to work on.
Most likely is SU board itself - Not repairable just to be replaced.
Sorry I work in the UK so I can only guide that the UK part is around £30
SU may have been damaged by failure if the PDP (Plasma Display Panel) but is 9 years only had 2 screens damage the SU board.
There are several setups to do after fitting a PDP. If you don't have the service data - Do not risk it, Reduced life of the Panel and a safety risk.

Look inside the dvd player tray up and or behind the flap you will most likely find something inside there that a young child tried to "feed it" with the help of a flashlight and some small needle noise pliers remove the offending object. No need for unscrewing most likely depending on how much damage was done, with luck very little.

the video heads are probably dirty.there is a steel drum 1/2 inch thick that you can see if you look thru the front lid where the tape loads.the video heads are little black spec looking things on the bottom of the drum.the easiest way to clean the drum for a novice is to put isopropyl alcohol on a piece of 2 inch square paper.hold the paper very lightly against the drum with your right index finger.turn the drum from the top,anti clockwise.you will see some black stuff on the paper.do the same with a piece of dry paper.otherwise the tape will stick to the drum if still wet.DO NOT use a q tip,as it will get caught in the heads and break them.
sometimes,just running a new blank tape for 15minutes will dislodge the particles and the picture will re appear.if you have recently rented a movie,and saw lines running across the screen,and noise from inside the machine,it is damaged tape going across the heads and drum and it can wipe out the picture just like that.run a blank tape first and then clean the drum if you have to.

Pulsing screen


Are you getting this on all video outputs from the DVD? the yellow analog out + the red/blue/green + the S video? Did you try connecting a different source? a digital cable TV tuner, or another DVD player? sometimes DVD players get screwed on some outputs, while the rest stay fine. I have a DVD that has an analog video out that shows an only black and white picture, while the red/blue/green works fine. Good luck
