Not to be arguementative, but these buffers aren't difficult at all to replace. The hardest part is ordering them. If you have any sort of mechanical inclination or even if you have experience with legos, you can do this repair. Here goes:
First use a thick cloth or blanket on a clean work bench or table that you don't mind occupying for a few days. Lay the TV face down on the cloth with the stand hanging off the table. Remove the stand and position the tv for stability. Next, take the back off. There is about a million or so hex or philips screws holding it in. Keep track of these screws, and where they all go, because they're all mostly alike. Once the back is off you will see five large rectangle circuit boards or different sizes, and four long skinny boards. There will be two large metal braces that run vertically along the TV. You may have to remove the one on the left to get access to your buffers and Ymain. There should only be a couple of bolts holding it on. Once removed you'll see a bunch of circuit boards, the ones on the left are the ones needing your attention. Starting from the left side of your view you will see two long skinny vertical boards attatched to each other and to a green board with a large heat sink. These long skinny vertical boards have orange ribbons attatched to each one. Those skinny boards are the Y Buffers. These are what you need to replace. The board they are attatched to is the Ymain or the YSUS (Y sustain). Most commonly the buffers and Ymain go out together. But start with replacing the buffers. You can find a part number on each of the boards, it will be labled with P/N: or Part: and will likely have a description written underneath, like Ybuff or Vert-buff. If you can't find it. Take a picture of the board and email it to me and I'll point it out for you. Cfoley@hawaii.rr.com. From there go to shopjimmy.com discountmerchant.com or the cheapest place is ebay, and order your buffers. Now there is something to be aware of here. The buffers and the Ymain, the larger rectangle board they are attatched to, all work as a compensating circuit. You may be fine just replacing the one piece, but like changing only one lightbulb in a fixture of four, the others will go out sooner because of the different signal given by the new part. I recommend changing both buffers at the same time, but if money is an issue, just pull them both and look for any tell tale burn signs. That'll be the buffer you need to replace. Yes they are different. Upper and Lower. If you can't find a burn mark, replace the one that cooresponds to the problems on your screen, black or funny lines. But like I said, you'll be better off to replace both. The buffers are held in place with a couple of mounting screws each and the ribbons are usually on with pressure clips. Unsnap everything, remove it carefully and reinstall and reverse your dismantle. If you get stuck or have any problems. Email me with pictures and I'd be happy to walk you through it.
Use common sense with any repair. Make sure the TV has been UNPLUGGED for an hour before starting. Not just off, but actually disconnected from the wall. This give the capacitors time to discharge. If you were to call in a technician to do this repair, it would take him 1 hour and would cost you over $700. Do it yourself and save $500.

Hello, same thing happened to my 10 day old 60ps60 and we called LG and they came out and put "pin tighteners" on the Y board. All they are are these little white plastic clips that the technician put on the connectors. It is nothing you can fix. Call LG

I have the same problem on my set. I had a repair technician out today and they wanted to replace the circuit board that the buffers are connected to and the adjacent board that drives the buffers. If you remove the back panel the buffers that are in line with the distorted areas on the screen are running super hot. Estimated price with labor was $700.

SOURCE: LG 60PS60-UA had horizontal thin black lines across the bottom half of the TV. I tried reseating y board with tv on and it went black and makes a faint clicking/pop noise everytime I turn it on now
