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.

Plasma color TV screen developed dense black vertical line


This is the best solution for your problem as a 40 year experience with wires etc. Go to the source of your cable signal connector . Open it and clean the terminals with emery paper , sand the end of the cable shiny clean from corrosion , get a new barrel connectors with gold terminals if possible lengthen the ends of the cable , insert and tighten good, use thick rg-16 or rg 40 cable with good insulation ends crimped professionally with a crimpier or buy ready made , not from dollar store. Get a gold plated professional splitter if you need one or two , it will cost about 15 or more each . Make the cable runs as short as possible, using the thick good cables. If needed get a signal magnifier. From radio shack or the source etc. Connect them good and tight . Ground the splitters . Problem solved , you will get crystal clear channel 2 to 7 including 3 and 4 . Isolate the TV cable from other cables and power wires. Vitally

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....

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.

Wide white vertical bar down center of screen.


The only way to fix this is to replace the entire inside of the television, basicly the entire set except the case and power supply. I watched two repairman do this repair and this is not a do it yourself job. I asked them on a scale from a 1-10 how hard this job was for them, and almost before I could get the last words out of my mouth with this questions they both said a 10.
