Question about Panasonic TH-37PD25U/P 37 in. EDTV-Ready Plasma Television

1 Answer

The screen just split - Left half is black. Right half is showing picture, but very bad picture quality fuzzy and horizontal hold is cycling. Irrespective of input. Is it a circuit board or some setting that's been bumped. Can't see any menus as they would usually display on the left, which is blank.

SOURCE: picture problem, half screen blank

On a plasma there are 2 buffer boards, upper and lower, it all depends which half of the screen is on as to which buffer to replace, the buffer boards are located usually on the left hand side if you have the back off the unit. You maybe able to reseat the ribbon cables and get the video back up

SOURCE: Screen just split in half

Is the tv still in warranty? The problem is the upper buffer board, it's a small board that controls the upper portion of the screen. You will have to consult a service center to get it, it's very easy to install

SOURCE: Picture has shifted to the left

This is a known problem. Panasonic sells a jig to correct it. I had the same problem and bought the jig for about $25. It plugs into a special port in the back of the tv behind a little door. You can read all about it here: http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showthread.php?t=534816

SOURCE: plasma only showing half picture

This is beyond consumer ability to repair. Please have it looked at by a qualified electronics service company.

SOURCE: I have a comcast Motorola HD capable cable box

Here sounds like your override setting on cable box needs to be set.
Here is how to fix that-
1. On remote push the button at the top that says CBL or Cable.
2. On remote push power button.
3. On the remote push the menu button.
This should bring up an internal menu called user settings.
4 Use the remote to scroll down to 4:3 OVERRIDE and use the LEFT or RIGHT arrow keys on the remote to change the value to 480i and see if this clears up your problem. If not repeat and change the setting to 480p and one of these settings should fix your problem.

Good Luck and please rate this solution.

Bottom half of screen doesn't work


Hello,
Since I do not have a picture of your screen, I can only guess. If it looks something like on the figure below, that can be fixed.
a90d480.jpg
In the foregoing picture, the screen is split horizontally. The black cursor is in the lower half of actual screen. You can restore the full screen by pressing [MODE], and scrolling down till the last line Full Horiz G-T. Move cursor on Full and press [ENTER]. Then press [CLEAR] to go back to the main screen.

If I did not guess right, well I am only human.

Hyundai 42 inch plasma tv


Mine's out, too. Red Horizontal bars Left and Right, picture goes in and out(meaning fuzzy-no picture) on Left half and the TV tuner is gone, I can play DVD with half of a screen most of the time, occasionally the whole screen.

I should have returned my "returnable model" three years ago when I noticed Wal-Mart was NOT accepting returns when purchased after a certain date (I had purchased just before that date) Big, Big, OOPS!!

Repair estimate starts at $800, not guaranteed, and that does NOT include repairing the TV tuner. Ouch, Ouch, Ouch.

I see Hyundai stopped selling these units... anyone in the Chicago area that wants it for parts, let me know.

Half a picture in black


Witch part of the screen you loose?if is the bottom or the top it could be a problem in the vertical IC circuit if is the left side or the right side is a problem on the horizontal deflection circuit(very rare),try taping on the set when it does it and see if the pix reacts ,if it does one way or the other you have loose conections and some resoldering need to be done.If you are familiar with tv circuitry you will have no problem.If you are not be safe and call for help.

Screen split with black bar through center, top of picture shows in bottom


It sounds as you desribe, the vertical output IC and or the b+ feed capacitor off the Hi voltage transformer feeding the vert. IC its required voltage. Not a really hard job to replace, but not for a handi person to do. This should be left to the professional, as there are no user serviceable parts inside this set and with the HI voltage and the safety issues its best to call somesone to assist you with this repair. Good Luck
