    I sent the TV for repairs and was told it was a $2700.00 repair on a set I paid a little less that $2500.00 for. I bought it from Kings in Owensboro, Ky. Got no help from them at all, and no help from Toshiba. I found my own solution to the problem. I went to Best Buy and replaced that Toshiba piece of junk with a Sony. I will never buy from Kings or Toshiba again. Lesson learned.

    There's a lot of problems with this Toshibe TV. Toshiba had problems with the laptop computers. Now there's many lawsuits. I keep watching the websites to see if there's any class action lawsuits on this tv set.

The whole screen or what is called the panel will need to be replaced. the panel comes with all the circuit boards less the power board and main board.

Lg plasma DT50py10. When turning on bottom half of screen is snowy and has lots of white lines for approx 20 min then it goes away. Top half of screen is normal


sounds like your bottom buffer board is on its way out .
Will also need to check the y sus board as this some times causes the buffers boards to fail.

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..

I got white vertical line running down a plasma display panel . they are close together that you cant even see on that side of the tv. on a closer inspection they are blue-green-red-blue-green-.... but...


A vertical line running down a plasma display can be caused by :

faulty buffer module.

Fauly sustain card.

Faulty plasma display.

Try unplugging power cable and see if this helps, if it does not , then you will need to call a technician.

In that case call the support number listed on your owner manual.

If warranty has expired, ask for a warranty extension, if available. this is cheaper than repair cost, and will cover the repair.

3 colored lines


Hi,
Is the 3 colored lines always in the same location? Top to Bottom or Side to Side?
The plasma panel is bad if it is from Top to bottom and the 3 colored lines are always in the same location.

The Z Sus, Y Sus and Y buffers are suspect is the lines are not always in one location and it is from side to side.

Repair cost is about half of your purchase price if the plasma is bad. I hope your unit is under warranty. Best Regards

White line


There are individual drivers for each line of plasma cells in the display (horz. & vert.), but they usually are an integral part of the display module that can only be repaired by the manufacturer. A new 42" HD-ready set with more features can be bought for 50-75% of what was likely paid for this one. The cheapest thing to do is learn to live with it. (That's what I'd do until the set got worse or the prices got even lower.)
