Question about Flat Panel Televisions

2 Answers

Plasma tv I saw your comments on FixYa. My TV did the same thing --I love the Rorschach description because that it exactly what mine looks like. The screen is black on either side with a flashing red "blob". Did you ever get yours fixed (or just replaced?). Mine is only 2 years old and I hate to spend a fortune getting it fixed.

    MIne was a Phillips. I'm sure they won't do much with the replacement or repair (of course, I didn't buy the extended warranty). What bums me out is that I have TV's that are10 years and older still running fine--this was does this at 2 years???!!!! Whatever happened to quality? Thanks for your feedback...I'll contact the repair shop to see what kind of estimate it'll take and go from there.

    The video on my Philips Plasma TV #42PF7320A/37 suddenly went. The TV is 2 1/2 years old. The picture is black on either side with a flashing red blob in the center.

You can also try a hard reset: Unplug TV from AC mains and remove all cables from TV. Wait about 30 minutes and replug to AC power and redo the cabling. Switch on the TV and see if it works..


If you would like to attempt a DIY, you will need a service manual to guide you. You can find one here:

However, be aware that there are voltages inside your TV set that can kill, even if unplugged.

Good luck...

You may want to google your model number and "screen problem" and you just might find that there is a warranty extension for your problem as it seems to be common.

65" Panasonic has 4" vertical black bar!!


By your detailed description, it sounds that there should be a loose connection with the 'COF'; connected to the screen. All of these COFs, can be located at the bottom side of the screen [looking from back]; in a horizontal row. If you wish to get more details to this fault, check the site kinked here. It has screen-shots of defective plasma TV screen, and possible faults.
I should appreciate you for this detailed description, that a few users will provide.

I had recently noticed the same thing happening with mine.Then the left half of the screen turned black and has various red, green, and blue vertical lines. The right half of the screen shows has the picture just fine. It's exactly right down the middle of the screen.
