I have a vertical white bar running down the middle of my screen. I have seen it before, but it has disappeared within a few minutes. Now it won't go away even after turning off the tv and letting it sit.

Your plasma panel is in the process of dying.

There is no economically feasible way to fix this, your best bet would be to start shopping for a new TV. A replacement panel for your TV would cost 80-90% of the value of a new TV.

Good luck.

Black screen with white horizontal line in middle of screen. Turn tv off for about 20 minute and then tv okay


The solder connections at the vertical output integrated circuit are bad and losing contact as the part heats up. A few minutes with a soldering iron to repair the connections should fix that up.

Old sony tv gets a bright line in the middle of the screen


Well if this is a tube type, it can be attributed to vertical section. Cold solder on vertical IC, the vertical gone bad or some components on the vertical is at fault.

If your not on electronics better to have it check by a repairer.

Hope this helps.

Display problem


the adjustment box for colour, brightness and contrast stays fixed on the screen. i tried pressing the exit button.... after a few times it disappears only to reappear within a few minutes. also the auto adjustment option, for which we are supposed to manually press the i button, keeps auto adjusting the screen whenever it feels like it. the box appears right in middle of the screen and is a real nuisance as it blocks out the main portion.

Black bar


On a non H.Def plasma, there is a PCB that runs along the bottom of the screen that is attached to the screen by a several brown/gold colored flat ribbon cables. I've seen where this ribbon cable is not seated properly in the jack. The ribbon cables are generally responsible for that section of the screen. Next possibility is the PCB itself is defective.
Not to scare you, but the plasma screen itself is a possible suspect.

Intermittent loss of picture


You'll have to locate the vertical output IC which should be mounted onto a heatsink, then take out a good magnifier under the printed circuit board and examine the solder connections on the pins of that IC and resolder the ones that are cracked.
