    I heed your warning, but press for a follow up since I have come this far. I personally replaced the power supply board earlier with success. This model has 2 boards listed as Y-Sus and I could get either or both reasonably cheap. What percentage chance to you give it of working and/or should I only try one board verses the other? This monitor is custom fit to a cabinet my kids use for games, so I don't mind this amount of money, but would like the odds to be better than 50/50 before I waste my time. Thanks.

The missing lines are caused by a failed y-sus board. The dim image can be caused by either the failed board or by the plasma panel itself who has been overstressed by the failing board. Either way to repair it will be difficult and costly (parts are no longer available new, only recovered or refurbished).
Junk this tv, it will be cheaper in the long run to get a new one.

6MTH OLD HOTPOINT PLASMA TV SUDDENLY HAS NO PICTURE NO SOUND


Hiya!

Sounds like it's on the wrong input, maybe it's analog tuner. Have you tried changing it's input?

I have a LG DU50PX10C with a black vertical line


Plasma televisions have anywhere from 24 to 40 drivers that control the individual rows of pixels comprising the screen. Should any of those drivers fail, the screen will display a 2 or 3-inch black vertical line, and probably shift the image to one side or the other. Driver failure is considered a manufacturing defect, and is not preventable by the owner. In some instances the line can be caused by faulty pixel ribbons that run top to bottom, either faulty of just loose in their connectors etc.


Then there are Stuck Pixels, Pixels become "stuck" due a failure to turn on from its standby state. Occasionally, these pixels die in rows, spanning the full height or width of the screen, or be only a few inches long. These "dead" pixels can turn on randomly, or stay a different color other than black. This is an issue caused from the wire filaments inside the panel failing, or an offshoot from a driver failure. Impact to the screen can cause a row to stick as well, even if there is little to no external indication of damage.


However, in most cases, inspection by an engineer is usually necessary to diagnose exactly what has caused the fault, unfortunately this can be an expensive prospect, not to mention the potential for a painful bill for the repair alongside the inspection fee. If your TV is in its warranty, don't hesitate to claim on it.
I hope this helps you, or at least gives you a better idea of what you potentially could be facing. Good Luck.

Clear a plasma monitor


I presume you have burned in an image from some source? Plasmas are very sensitive to burning in so be careful when hooking up a device that doesn't have pixel shift or dimming. Think about how a DVD player splash screen looks.

You will need some sort of source device that can give you WHITE and BLACK. If you have a VGA input on your plasma (more than likely) hook up a computer to it using the PC input and bring up PowerPoint. Bring up just a blank new presentation. Hit the F5 button or click on the tripod screen button. This will bring up the full display screen, which should be white. If not hit the "W" key on the keyboard. If the burned image shows up as a gray or black image, leave it on for a few minutes and then check it periodically.

f you don't see a burned image when in WHITE mode, hit the "B" key. This will bring up a BLACK screen. Check your screen again. Keep doing ot until the screen is clean. By the way, this will not completely remove all burned in images.

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN 1080I AND 1080P AND WHICH ONE IS BETTER?


1080i vs 1080p - Similarities and Differences Between 1080i and 1080p
How 1080i and 1080p Are Both The Same and Different
1080i and 1080p are both High Definition display formats for HDTVs. 1080i and 1080p signals actually contain the same information. Both 1080i and 1080p represent a 1920x1080 pixel resolution (1,920 pixels across the screen by 1,080 pixels down the screen). The difference between 1080i and 1080p is in the way the signal is sent from a source component or displayed on an HDTV screen. In 1080i each frame of video is sent or displayed in alternative fields. The fields in 1080i are composed of 540 rows of pixels or lines of pixels running from the top to the bottom of the screen, with the odd fields displayed first and the even fields displayed second. Together, both fields create a full frame, made up of all 1,080 pixel rows or lines, every 30th of a second.
In 1080p, each frame of video is sent or displayed progressively. This means that both the odd and even fields (all 1,080 pixel rows or pixel lines) that make up the full frame are displayed together. This results in a smoother looking image, with less motion artifacts and jagged edges.
Differences Within 1080p 1080p can also be displayed (Depending on the video processing used) as a 1080p/60 (Most common), 1080p/30, or in 1080p/24 formats. 1080p/60 is essentially the same frame repeated twice every 30th of a second. (Enhanced video frame rate.) 1080p/30 is the same frame displayed once every 30th of a second. (Standard live or recorded video frame rate.) 1080p/24 is the same frame displayed every 24th of a second (Standard motion picture film frame rate.)

Fujitsu plasma tv is on but no picture on screen. monitor screen seems to work as it displays the "video input", but there's no picture


Check all inputs. Are they all dead. Try other signal source. Does antenna input work when connected to known good source?Vide input label being displayed indicates most of the tv is working. You need to determine if you have lost signal in the video input.

Black vertical line 3inches in from the left on my fujitsu PDS4233W-H plasma screen


If the line is all the way from top to bottom, it could be your upper and lower buffer boards or your plasma display unit is bad. I suggest you contact a servicer for your brand.

I am amazed it lasted that long. It could well be in the panel and would be expensive to fix. I think you would be better served at checking out a 40-42" LCD replacement. They've come a long way since yours was made.
