Hi

Thanks for using FixYa. As Plasma TV is a very hard working device so it produces lots of heat and around 75% issues in Plasmas are caused due to overheating. To start with you'll have to open the back of the unit and check for any bulged/bad capacitors on Y and Z-sus boards. As the sound is working fine so it seems that the power supply is fine, also check the control board for any bulged capacitors. Please accept the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.

Thanks
Rylee

2" wide bar in center of Panasonic plasma TH-C42FD18 TV


The C5 board is bad. It is replaceable. Warning. always disconnect power cables from power board to y main on left and x main on the rt before ever messing with fat cables on boards across the bottom . The are created if power power is not isolated will vaporize these flat cable destroying the plasm panel. thes boars across the bottom are the c boards. If one of the connectors is loose it will create an vertical black bar in proximity to that connector. If the connector is not loose then replace that board. Also panel could be bad if c board does not fix. But remember to never connect or dissconnect these flat without disconnecting the power board from the sustain boards.

Black vertical bar starts 11" from left, approx 3" wide and goes from top to bottom. Replaced TNPA4441 board, no fix. Disconnected ribbon to that section of plasma screen and bar turns white with color...


Since you've replaced the C2 buffer board and didn't fix it. It's very unlikely but possible that the D board is defective. Visually inspect the solder joints on the D connector or try to press slightly on it; if pressing the connector works then there is a loose or cold solder joint on the D connector.
The screen should be replace since still under warranty. The price for a new screen might exceed the price of the plasma, even if you pay for labour still something to decide whether to fix or not.
Try contacting panasonic and ask them nicely if they would be willing to cover the labour cost as well.
Good Luck.

I have a vertical black line on the left side of my TH-50pz85u.


hi all .ive had the same problem,a thick black line down screen.sometimes it flickers from top to bottom and other permantly in view.but i have solved it.forget your ic boards and taking apart tv.have you got either a ps3 or wii connected to tv.if so unplug power lead from socket and relocate in seperate socket.make sure the lead is completely free of any other leads and you might just find this works.i think the power lead creates some sort of frequency that the tv picks up .good luck hope it works

Vertical black bar down the middle of hitachi plasma tv


Ok if your hitachi TV dies with no power anywhere try this:
Some models have a kill switch under the bottom edge. It's like a gray switch like a small light switch press it back in and voila let there be LIGHT. Saves you at least a $200 trip to repair shop!!

Black bar running from top to bottom in the screen.


There are horizontal and vertical relays in plazmas that go out over time and cause this to happen , You can get an estimate from a local tv repair service in some cases they can give it to you over the phone. Good luck.

Panasonic th-50pz85u problem


My problem turned out to be silly but simple. I recently took my TV off the wall and mounted it on a stand alone platform. I snaked the power plug through the back tube and left too much tension at the entry point for power. If you leave the slightest tension the female connector will jiggle and it will shut off. It normally takes 3 minutes before you can retry and then the problem persists. Try allowing more slack and/or buying a new power connector to make sure the plug connects correctly. Good Luck!

Screen split with black bar through center, top of picture shows in bottom


It sounds as you desribe, the vertical output IC and or the b+ feed capacitor off the Hi voltage transformer feeding the vert. IC its required voltage. Not a really hard job to replace, but not for a handi person to do. This should be left to the professional, as there are no user serviceable parts inside this set and with the HI voltage and the safety issues its best to call somesone to assist you with this repair. Good Luck
