    I have the same problem with my Philips LCD screen. The left center it starts out with vertical stripes of different colors then it goes black. Sometimes it goes away.

    I have the same problem myself. Have a 2-year old Panasonic plasma TV (TH-42PX60U) and now I have a permanent vertical black stripe along the left hand side...plus the shadows. I've disconnected everything and tried to "reboot", but not working. So disappointed in Panasonic because this TV is so highly rated on Consumer Reports and CDnet. Was anyone able to fix? What did Panasonic do to keep you as a customer? I'll don't think I'll buy another Panasonic again if they don't do the right thing.

    I have the same problem with my 3 year old LG LCD TV. The qualified repair center said the LCD screen itself is broken because of micro-cracks which are formed because of heating up and cooling down. It can be repaired by replacing the entire screen which is more expensive than a new LCD TV. Philips TV's have the same problem because they come out of the same factory.

    So my TV, which was supposed to last 50,000 hours, is now broken after 3,500 hours or so. Thank you LG.... NOT!!

Hi
If there is no picture behind the stripe and the edges are well-defined, then one of the display driver ICs has failed. Philips displays can be made by several manufacturers - usually Samsung. The ICs are bonded to the flexible ribbon in most cases, and replacement is an expensive specialist job - and in many cases is simply not possible.
A shadow on the picture is much better - usually due to interference.

I have the same problem with my 3 year old LG LCD TV. I brought it to a certified repair center and they said the screen is broken because of micro-cracks which were formed because of heating up and cooling down. They said Philips and LG have a whole series of TV's with this problem. Repair is possible by replacing the entire screen which is more expensive than an new TV...
So a TV which is about to last for 50,000 hours broke after only 3,500 hours : (

Panasonic TC-P42S2 .. Transparent 2 inch wide vertical discoloration on panasonic 42 inch plasma, very left of the screen.


Fixed mine, myself! Black 3 inch vertical band (stripe) appeared after a cros country move on our PC-T50G10. Occasionally we would see white band with multicolored pixel width stripes. Took the risk of taking off the back to see if I could see anything. Found places on sides and bottoms where plastic like 2" flat cables could be seen. Guesstimated where the band was and found that I could flip down a black cover on one end of the cable. Tried to pull it, gently. Mistake. Realized it wouldn't one out like computer hard drive cables, so I took out the screws holding the plate on the other end (it's only an inch long). That allowed me remove the cable. Took it out, cleared away dust, put t back and closed the black over. It worked! Put the screws back in, back on and... we are happy (although I do have four extra screws!). Just be gentle.

Coloured lines on screen


Make sure first that the picture is centered by using the remote control to move the picture vertically and horizontally. Use the round pad towards the center of the remote and push the button according to which direction you want the frame to move.

42" Panasonic Plasma - Vertical red stripe 6" from left side


We originally had a red stripe roughly 3" wide running vertically on the ride edge area of our Panasonic 52" Viera plasma tv. It has now been joined by a solid black stripe of the same width running from the top to the bottom. Living in Germany and purchased at local PX long enough ago that the warranty is likely expired. Now what?

Philips plasma tv vertical black stripe


Ok did this happen the first time u turn on the TV. ? If so u might have a ribbon cable disconnect from the logic or u might have a defective Plasma panel. If u have a defect like your describing the IC's on the panel short out and no longer work causing that section of the screen not to function. Only fix then is replace panel
