Question about Televison & Video

1 Answer

5 day old Samsung Plasma 50 inch, 720p. has a slight hint of pink-ish vertical 2 inch wide band on far left of screen. Only shows sometimes, also a dark grey wide band vertical in center screen shows up during blank segments of commercial scene changes. Is there a reason to worry about it, for a prompt return/exchange? Or is this nothing?

    Thank you; I wonder what it means?


    My worry is that the exchange will be that way too.  They cost so much I just want it to be worth it.  I appreciate your input Jaime.

Have a 50 Samsung plasma that has developed vertical white lines across the screen about 1 inch apart. Quality of picture is still great and unaffected. Lines have left once or twice but come back. Ca


Maybe it's time 4 a new t.v. Do you leave t.v. on a lot or play a lot games. Turn off your t.v. when not using. Is t.v. old, get a new new one. You will be you did. The newer sets have HD which make for better viewing. I suggest an LED and not a Plasma.

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.

Samsung 50 in. HPS5033X/XAA colored lines running vertically and won't go away.


How wide are the lines. Do they change width? Where on the screen are they located?Connections on the c boards at the bottom to the panel flex cables or bad c board itself can cause 2 inch wide verticle bar. Before touching these connectors be sure power supply is disconnected from the 2 sustain boards on the sides. If you don't there will be an arc that will destroy the flex cable thus you will have to replace the panel. If C boards or connections don't fix it the replace the plasma panel. If the lines are thin lines then panel is likely bad. Contact Panasonic even if out of warr they may help.

Dark band 6 inches wide middle of the screen


YOU MAY HAVE A DEFECTIVE Y DRIVER BOARD OR A RIBBON CABLE THAT HAS COME DISCONNECTED. THIS NOT USUALLY THE PANEL SINCE THE PANEL DOES TURN ON. TAKE IT TO AN AUTHORIZED SERVICER.
