Techwood 42inch plasma

Hi ,

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.

Carole

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.

Green vertical line on videocon 42inch plasma tv


Hello Depending how wide the line is their could be two possible causes.
I have two questions for you.
1. How wide is the line.
2. Does it run from top of screen to bottom of screen?
If the line is thin a single strait line then it is possible the PDP has gone Bad (Panel). (Screen). The screen will to be replaced.
If the line is at least 2 or more inches wide then its a buffer board which can be replaced. LG calls this board Hand insert Boards or display driver boards..

Black Vertical line appeared on my Daewoo Plasma


Bad connection somewhere along the bottom or top of the panel, there are boards most likely along the bottom of the screen that control vertical drawing, a connection that breaks as it is heated up sounds about right. check the connectors along the bottom. Be very careful because if you wreck em the screen is junk. The connector that will be at fault will be in direct line with the black bar.

Vertical Black line 3 inch width on Plasma Samsung 42C96HD after 2 months of use


On al the plasma tvs there are control boards on the lower part of the screen that control the vertical images. If one of the chips on one of the boards fail, have a bad connection, or no ground it will result in a thick black lne down the screen. Seeing as the tv is new I would get the warrantee repair on it. There is a possibility that there is a problem with the screen itself but more than likely its the boards.
