Question about Panasonic VIERA TH-65PV500 65 in. Plasma Television
I have had my plasma for just over 3 years, however the past month black vertical have appeared sporatically, now we have had 2 lines right down the middle, its stays on for hours and only goes away for ten minutes, then back on again.
I have disconnected all other appliances and line still there so not a singal problem.
Do you have any ideas as seems a generic problem with alot of plasmas ???
Do i need a new tv or an expensive repair, I hope not.
I would really appreciate your advice.
Black line probl;em with this model is caused by dry joints on the resistors that are attached to the individual ribbon cables. a fairly easy fault to repair. but it means undoing all the screws and resoldering the resistors. once the back of the tv is off, locate the offending resistors and resolder them,Take the two screws that hold the ribbon cable assembly and gently lift out the ribbon cable. just use a hot enough soldering iron (mains or portable gas) and watch the solder 'flow' attach the ribbon cable. if you're careful, you can test to see if the fault has been repaired prior top replacing the cover. (make sure there's no pets or children nearby and be very carfeul as there's live mains within reach. once you're happy the fault has been repaired, put the cover back on. Its worth resoldering all the resistors just to save the fauklt reoccaring anywhere else. dominic :-)

Same happened with mine... its a screen fault and your tv is dead. currys just sent me £1000 worth of vouchers as it wasn't worth the cost of fixing it.
