Question about Panasonic TH-42PX25U/P 42 in. Plasma HDTV
The only way to fix this unit is to do a software upgrade. Panasonic no longer sells the Jig for the update. I will fix it for you. I will tell you what board to ship to me and i will upgrade it for you. Just call me at 347-831-6372. I have over 30 Years experience in repairing TV.

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.

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.
