Dry solder joints on the pins of the vertical integrated circuit may have caused this problem Tap each I/C lightly with a plastic screwdriver handle to find the intermittent one. It is the one with a heat sink attached.

Get a black line down the center of the screen. IT can have 2-8 white lines or red llines within the black stripe. It use to come and go but now is there all the time!


It's caused by a poor connection betwwen the screen and the rear circuit board. There is a conductive rubber filler which is used to bridge the connection and it can move off line. You can sometimes sort it by GENTLY flexing the casing.

Have LG 42 inch plasma, 1 inch black line down center of screen, picture good other than black line blocking center of screen, comes and goes sometimes


Sounds like the middle scalar board is defective. Since the issue comes and goes it could just be a loose connection to the between the scalar board and the PDP Module (plasma panel).

Great caution needs to be taken when checking this connection because it is a ribbon cable connection it and needs to be put in correctly aligned or it could cause a short in one of the circuit boards.

Black line in centr of Screen


sounds like a bad panel, try reseating any cables you can on the buffers . the buffers would be on the lower edge right where the black line appears. unfortunately Vizio does not supply panels.

Black line down the center of screen


Usually this means pixel, but I would question if the line is mostly near right side or left side of screen? If more to one side this could be a bad board inside. for more info ctechnicians.com

Black line in center of screen


These black lines on the plasma screens are very fixable.  There is a dry solder joint on a circuit board at the bottom of the plasma that needs resoldered.  There are 6 or 7 "ribbons" along the bottom of the screen that correspond to vertical sections of the display, so you just follow the black vertical line down to figure out which one is faulty.  I just performed this fix successfully on my first attempt on a Gateway plasma, but it will work on most plasma's, specifically Hitachi, gateway, LG, Hyundai, & Akai. I think they may all have LG boards, my gateway did.
I can't really describe very well what to do, but I assure you it is fixable.  If anyone is near nashville, I might be able to help you out.  My email is tomp2000@juno.com.
thanks,
ST
