Question about Norcent Technologies PT4231 42 in. HD-Ready Plasma Television

1 Answer

Eske told me to ask you!

I just bought Norcent pt4233 second hand. Basically, after watching it for about 2 hours, I get 5-6 vertical red lines. They are very sporadic, and it looks like red pixels are moving around forming lines. I'm sorry for long description, but this is the only wayfor me to describe what's happening.

I usually turn it off for about 10 min and that I can watch it for another 2 hours. I can also increase the brightness and then the lines kinda disspear. Personally, I think that the TV gets too HOT. After I turn it off, I put my hand behind the TV and it's super hot!

I saw some threads on other forums, and people say that Norcent uses LG parts, and that I can order part from some resellers and fix it myself. The problem is that I dont know what to buy! I would greatly appreciate if you'd advise me what to do. Thank you.

Are the vertical lines across the entire Screen? If so it could be the control Board. If the lines only go part way from the top but not all the way to the bottom. Depending on where they are it could be the x boards. can you post a picture of your screen with the lines?

Usually black lines in a flat panel indicate an error or problem in the video board. A service professional can hook up to the tv and better diagnose the issue.

Vertical line on my 46" toshiba lcd tv


The only logical solution for the problems people are having for the toshiba regza's tv's is to get into a class action law suite..., they contiue to sell tv's with defective parts and refuse to help the customer that spent large cash to find out they last if your lucky 2.5 years, they are junk and anyone with one will soon find out./.......

Insignia(samsung) 50" plasma Vertical red lines


I would take it back. I know from purchasing an Insignia LCD from them a while back, the TV just died after about 4 or 5 months. They ended up offering me another TV or with store credit. I took the store credit and chose another TV. I also did not have a warranty. I was told since it was Insignia (which is a Best Buy house brand) that replacing it was not a problem. Good luck.

Vertical Black line 3 inch width on Plasma Samsung 42C96HD after 2 months of use


I also have the same problem I phoned Samsung today to explain the tv was only 14 months old, they didn't wanna no because it was out of warrenty by 2 months. I am getting a black solid line down the left hand side of the screen. I ended up phoning Dixons were we bought it from, they have told me to get an independent engineers report done & send the report to them within 14 days. Dixon told me it was a known problem with Samsungs. They said they will fix it free of charge if they can if not they will send vouchers to the same value of the television. So beware stay clear of Samsungs.
