Send it for repair... It sounds like the Y-sus board and the upper and lower Y-drives... This unit uses the same panels as the Philips 42pf7320a so it shouldn't be that expensive for parts...
I wouldn't personally send it to Dell - instead look through the NESDA web site and locate a repair center near you and take the unit to them for an estimate.

Two vertical black lines on the screen of my ps50b430


Unless someone played with the TV and disconnected the plasma display from the address buffer boards that go under the screen the prospects aren't good.

All vertical lines in all plasma TVs I have seen are operated by chips embedded in the fabric of the display as well.

When they fail they'd either short or burn open.

In the first case they'd prevent the TV from coming up, in the second they'd typically manifest as either black or a random color vertical line like you have.

This is not repairable...sorry.

The odds of this being something else is fairly minimal in my opinion.

Please don't kill the messenger...

Very thin black vertical line moving across tv screen left to right on tv


The screen voltage to the picture tube is more than normal. Adjust it by the help of screen pot-meter integrated with Line Output Transformer. Visit the site named 'Electro-help' for more details. Check this link and select the site named above. View it in 'Flip card' option, which can be selected from the drop down box menu at the left top corner or the display window. It will make search easy.

I have a panasonic 48 inch plasma TV which has developed a fault. There is a yellow line down the centre of the screen on all channels. Is the TV knackered?


Hello,

IF YOU HAVE A SOLID BLACK LINE RUNNING VERTICALLY THEN YOU HAVE A FAULTY MATRIX INVERTER. IF CENTRAL THE MAIN VERTICAL INVERTER NEEDS CHANGED. LEFT = LEFT VERTICAL INVERTER RIGHT=RIGHT.........

ANOTHER WAY TO GET THIS FAULT IS WORN OR DAMAGED RIBBON/PLASTIC GOING FROM THE SCREEN MATRIX TO THE INVERTER
Hope this will help in solving the problem.....
