Question about Hitachi P50H401 50 in. Plasma HDTV

Open Question

Have an Hitachi p50h4011 plasma that has just recently developed a black horizontal line about a third of the way down. It started about a week ago and has came on and off a couple of times. Is the tv going bad or is this something that can be fixed. The tv is about four years old.

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: my tv is hitachi 55pd plasma

snoopmikeym - Have you found anything out on what is causing the line?? I am completely frustrated with Hitachi no tech help what so ever. The nearest service place is in a town of about 500 people and 30 miles away... I doubt they've worked on a 55" plasma before....

My hitachi plasma 1080 tv has black horizontal lines on the top half of the screen


Visit the site named 'Electro-help' for more details. Click this link. View it in "Timeslide" option, which can be selected from the drop down box menu by the [Sidebar] tag, at the top left corner of the display window. It will make search easy. There are more than 1000 posts to different brand TVs now. Pull up older posts there. Faults to Plasma TVs are described in detail there. Check it. Just see, almost all Plasmas are built on same type chassis and board configuration, so the fault to these sets too will be almost the same in nature.

Horizontal lines on Screen


here's something you can try...remove the back and notice that there are ribbon cables (FRAGILE!) on the right and left side...alot of times these cables develope bad connections and cause the lines you see...other times the panel will be suspect. Removing these ribbon cables and reseating them have helped me determine in the past if it is a bad connection...or a bad panel

Picture is now a thin horizontal line


now only visible in a thin horizontal line. first of all you reduce brightness to monimum. it just to protect your tv from crt demage. your problem is in horizontal output section as you have mentioned that week or so ago the right and left bottom edges of the picture began to move in like a sideways triangle filled with black so this sympton is due to hor. section problem. your flyback transformer or horizontal output might be defective. but remember check for power supply is ok from surge protector hope this will help.
