Question about Zenith P60W26 60 in. HD-Ready Plasma Television

1 Answer

I have a Zenith P60W26. It has vertical lines starting from the top working down the screen. Some are red some are green It started with one, now i have 6 or more. They are starting to appear on the right side now. They change in appearance (color) as the image changes, but they are always there regardless of the input source.

    thank you for the input. how would i be able to get a schematic for this unit? also, would you be able to furnish me with a block diagram that would show me the relationship of the particular boards to each other. i would like to work "down stream or upstream" in trouble shooting the problem. you mentioned that i should start with the power-supply and base most of my diagnosis on looking for visual signs of poor solder connections. are there any board mounted components that would be responsible for these symptoms? where would i go to obtain sparring boards?

Hi Jim,
This is very common faults in plasma tv. Bad news because this kind of symptoms has a lot of parts that are going to consider which was gone to malfunction. The boards most likely to fail are the control board, sustain boards, and the power supply board. They are chain for processing the image and feed to the plasma panel. First the unit must isolate from loose connections and bad solder joints because it will produce same symptoms. All the cable connectors must be pull-out and then re-insert and ensure the connections. Power supply board is prone from bad solder joints (cracked/dried/cold solder) because this is the warmest/hard working among the boards. This is hard to spot, I would advice you to work in the brightest area or used table/portable lamp and magnifying glass and re-solder it on the board.
If you don't have necessary tools and test instrument and can't troubleshoot the unit yourself, I would advice you to look for a qualified tv technician or send it to reputable repair shop.
Also, check if your unit is still under warranty/extended warranty period, avail it because the manufacturer will fix it for free. Don't attempt to open the back cover(it will void the warranty).
Hope I helped you.
Have a nice day!
Thanks for using Fixya.

    Also check for bad filter electrolytic capacitor in the output of the power supply. It will dropped the supply voltage and will disable the boards loaded to it. Sometimes it bulged/dome at the top.

Vertical red lines on screen


LCD correct?

There are 2 types of lines they may be showing, both requiring the replacement of the LCD Panel.

1. Delamination Lines- they are usually multiple vertical lines that do NOT flow from the top to bottom of the screen. Looks look water dripped down or something similar

2. Single/Multiple Vertical lines - This is normally 1 or maybe a few solid vertical lines that travel from Top to bottom. I belive in some cases they may only travel to the screen center.

In both cases, this will always show when the TV is ON. Even if there is no signal being input to the TV. There are other possibilities but these can be the most common. Both require a new panel.
