My Philips 42" plasma tv screen often goes black, sometimes only the bottom half. When I tap the side of the set, the full picture returns but the problem returns...... any advice/suggestions?

    I have the same problem with my 42in. but it has been going on for months. I thought it had something to do with my directv receiver but i guess not. half the picture comes and goes only lower half goes out. sometimes stays out for 10-15 seconds then picture returns but has been happening more frequently. any suggestions

    I also had the same problem with my 42" Philips Plasma Tv for several weeks, but now the picture quality (regardless of input) has become grainy with 3" horizontal bands. The picture is too bad to watch at this point. Any suggestions on where to look for the problem on the inside after I take it apart? How much do you suspect a repair shop will charge to trouble shoot the problem and R&R the bad part(s) if they can find the problem?

You have a Ysus problem. Sounds like a cold solder joint or loss connections on ysus main board.

While watching tv half the screen goes black


Download software from the Phillips web site. Use a usb flashdrive to transfer the download to the TV. This worked well for us and our picture is better than ever.

Picture goes black on bottom half of the screen


You have a bad connection to the panel or bad caps on the boards. Not something for the DIY'er. High voltages in plasma sets.

My plasma screen goes black on bottom 1/2 of the screen


In most cases the lower Y-Buffer board causes this issue. Unless you know how to work on a TV it is suggested that you have a technician look at the TV and repair it for you.

No picture, sound ok


I have a similar issue. Sometimes the entire screen goes black and sometimes only one-half - either the top or bottom half goes black. The only solution we have found is to gently tap the TV (usually the front side) and the picture will come back for awhile. It almost seems heat related as it only goes out after the first 10 minutes of use. There must be a fix to this.

Phillips 42 inch Plasma -Screen Issues!!!


intermittent loss of picture on either bottom or top half of screen is specific to y buffer boards located on left side of screen going from top to bottom when looking at back of tv. the y lower buffer would be the board to replace to resolve the loss of bottom half of picture. if the top half also is going out intermittently could tied to upper buffer as well but just a note the y main board to right of these buffers drives those two boards so in some cases could also be part of the problem. if only bottom half is affected i would recommend replacing lower buffer only
