Question about Philips Televison & Video

1 Answer

I have a Phillips Flat TV - HDTV model number 42PF94310/378 My problem is, now when I turn in on there is approximately 3-4 black vertical line going up the screen (near the center of the screen). Im decent with fixing technical problems on computers etc, but I dont really know much with televisions and what could be causing this problem. Should I take it in for repair, or is there something i can replace fairly easily? Thanks for your help!

SOURCE: Black Line down center of screen

Had the same problem.  Was quoted $800 to fix.  Searched the internet for 6 months and found this thread on avforums.com

Read through all the posts.  Very simple fix, but you have to have some mechanical inclinations or you can cause more problems than you started with.  I was up to 5 of the black lines, but decided to attempt the soldering these guys did and fixed it all for the cost of a soldering iron!

SOURCE: Haier Plasma TV problem

My experience with a Haier Plasma 42EP24S is that they have weak software chip that goes bad and can cause a number of symptoms from picture with no sound, will not recognize video inputs, or my current problem tv turns on and off irratically.  This is the second time i have replace this chip, which is the socketed chip on the vga/component/dvi input circuit card.  Last time i had this problem i ended up fixing it myself because sears took over 3 weeks and still could not figure out the problem.  I am working on obtaining this chip, probally get about a dozen so if anyone thinks this may fix there problem as well i my have some for sale.  michael@malobicky.com of Malobicky Digital Systems.

Three kinds of detects count for this problem. It could be the Logic board, or the Logic Buffer board, or the PDP panel. Just drop your tv to the warranty depot shop to repair.

SOURCE: philips plasma tv vertical black stripe

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.

Samsung 42" Plasma -Black vertical line when turned on.


It sounds like an Intergrated Circuit (IC) has fried. Even on a good day, this is not something you can attack at home. As a tech (and as an owner of that model samsung), I'd need a map & tools to know what's going on. Your best bet in this situation is to contact Samsung and let them recommend an authorized service center in your area. Sorry I can't be of more help, but this is a rather serious problem.

Blue Vertical Lines on the screen


It means the optical block is going bad. Contact Sony support. They will sometimes warranty these even after the 1yr warrany has expired. Have your model and serial numbers handy.

Vertical lines across my entire screen


My 42" Samsung Plasma HDTV HP-R4252 has a 2" vertical strip of green pixels down the right side of the screen.

My 3 year warranty with Circuit City expires in Nov 2008.. so I hope I'm covered.. can't call until the morning.

Samsung said it might be a logic board problem.. but they want almost $2000 to fix. I might as well buy another TV if Circuit City can't fix it.
