Question about Dell W4200 42 in. HD-Ready Plasma Television

2 horizontal bands of negtative image

I have a W4200HD. I am getting 2 bands of distrotion (negative image), one at the top 1/2 of the screen and the other in the bottom 1/2. It's worse at the bottom of the band and get better going up. when the image is neutral the negative images is worst. For quite some time if you turn the tv off then try and turn it back on you have to unplug it for a few seconds. this problem happened right after doing that. I have the TV open but don't have a lot of expereince with electrons. Certainly seems easy to replace boards. Can anyone tell me which board is bad?

Thanks a bunch, David Henderson

Hi there

Try replacing the electrolytic capacitors in the power supply section. I started with replacing (2) 860uf 180v caps just after the bridge rectifier and continued along the circuit. Some (15) or so capacitors later,it finally cleared the the horizontal bars and lines and the high pitched noise. It also fixed another intermediate problem of no video, when turning on the power.

Thank you for using FixYa. Have a nice day and please remember to rate this solution as FixYa if it helps you.

Thanks

It sounds like you have a defective panel. It will be cheaper for you to replace the set. Hopefully the place that you purchased the boards from have a good return policy.

Many units will self adjust the image size, but the size of the image you will see depends on what size it was originally recorded in. You can change it in the settings of the TV but most likely it will not go bigger if it was shot smaller.

if the band is horizontal your tv has bad y-buffer board. Usually there are 2 buffer boards- top and bottom. if the problem is in the top half of the screen replace the top board, otherwise replace bottom board.
but better to replace both a the same time.

if the tv has a vertical lines from top to bottom it may have bad plasma panel and can be considered as not economical to repair.

First of all try, changing the input device to some other and see whether you see the same problem. Then connect your present input to a different TV and see. If you feel the input is ok, and it is a problem in the display, this is a case to be handled by a qualified service technician.
