Today the left half of screen turned red, then green, then black with a few skinny vertical bars in red, green, blue. I have no idea where to start with this.

    Same problem with mine. I can't wait to hear what to do about it. It seems pretty common.

    I have the same problem. I can't wait for a solution. I think I'll call tech support tomorrow. It seems pretty common.

    I just started having the same problem about 3 days ago. Unfortunately, $700+ is not acceptable solution for me as well

    I have the exact same issue. I have taken the TV to a local repair shop. he thinks it is a logic board ($300 parts and labor)but, could be the screen in which case the cost would be prohibitive. I am going to try it. I will let you know what happened.

I just got quoted $705 from the Vizio certified repair partner. Nice. Nice and way too expensive. I may as well buy a new TV instead. It certainly won't be a Vizio. They told me a I needed a Y systainer, C systainer and a right-driver board.

Lame. I'm trying to find something local.

Any advice on what board I should replace if the left half of the screen is no good, just showing white and black vertical bars? Right half is fine. Is the panel kaput?

Panasonic TC-P65VT25 has a black vertical line half way down screen.


Sounds like you've had a failure of a part in the electronics. Plasma TVs use pretty high voltages (like the old picture-tube models) and parts can get fried over time. You'll need to have your Panasonic serviced by a qualified technician. Don't try to do it yourself -- high voltages, remember?

Our Vizeo P42 purchased in July 2005 has had a red vertical bar on the left side for about two months. About a week ago it developed vertical lines across the left half of the screen with no picture...


sadly no.
either your panel has been hit and damaged or the panel itself is failing.
without some sort of warranty coverage, your repair cost would exceed the price of replacement.

Black vertical bar about 4 and a half inches wide down center of screen


hi...
It sounds like an Intergrated Circuit (IC) has fried.
Your best bet in this situation is to contact ur tv service operator and let them recommend an authorized service center in your area....

Green vertical bar on right side of plasma TV screen


You could have one of three problems. One is really expensing to fix and you might want to trash the set. Thats if the panel is bad. Secondly, it could be a buffer board that went back. Not as expensive as the panel. Finally, it could be the connection between the two. I would first take the back off and locate this board. Undo the ribbon cable and clean it off a bit and put it back. If its still there, you have a deeper problem.

Vertical lines across my entire screen


My 42" Samsung Plasma HDTV HP-R4252 has a 2" vertical strip of green pixels down the right side of the screen.

My 3 year warranty with Circuit City expires in Nov 2008.. so I hope I'm covered.. can't call until the morning.

Samsung said it might be a logic board problem.. but they want almost $2000 to fix. I might as well buy another TV if Circuit City can't fix it.
