Question about HP PL5060N 50 in. Plasma HDTV

1 Answer

My HP 50 inch Plasma flat screen has white horizontal lines in it, the white lines look like "lace", and I can see the TV picture behind them. The TV is 3.5 years old. Can I fix it myself and how much will it cost? Best Buy wants a lot of money to come out and run diagnostics, and then $$$$ to fix it. Could the Wii cause this? Thanks, Connie

    Thanks for your response. Is the Y-main different from the board? If so, how do I fix the Y-main? Does the $300 price include the Y-main only? So, Best Buy would charge $150 to run diagnostics, and then on top of that another $300, and that's only if it's not replacing the board? What causes this, do you know?

    How do I fix the Y-main? You told me about the board. Is the $300 price for Y-main only, plus additional $ for the board?

    Thank you. I'll have to have a professional come fix it. I just didn't want to take their word when they tell me what is wrong with it. I'll see if this is what they tell me the problem is. Thanks again.

Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. From what you have described it seems to be the issue with Y-main however, the logic board should also be checked. These boards are located on the right side of the unit and to check them you’ll have to open the back of the unit. Once you have opened the back also check for any blown/bulged capacitors.
All this is only recommended if you have electrical expertise & know how to solder/re-solder components as these units contain high voltages even when in off position. The cost to get this repair will be around $300 and a bit more if the board is replaced. Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.


Thanks
Rylee

    Sorry for late response, somehow I missed on your earlier mail. $300 price includes repair if its only one board that you replace yourself, if you get the repair done by a professional then the cost can go higher. And Y board is the board that I was talking about.

Permanent horizontal line approx. 4" from top of screen


if this line is in the picture, that is possible burn in screen. if you have a black bar at the top or faint white lines that come down from top this is caused by defective filters in vertical circuit or bad vertical output. mch

You have a burn in problem from watching widescreen movies.If you have access to a signal generator or tv setup disc run a perfectly white screen on the plasma for about 30 min.This should help even out the pixels on the display.
