Check if the socket between Y driving board and Y BUFFER is plugged well. If not, plug it well. If yes then replace Y BUFFER (upper, lower) in respect to the upper , lower part of the dark line on
the screen.

Service manual Troubleshooting tips:
There appear on the screen one vertical unlit line or a vertical entirely unlit block?
a. If it’s one vertical unlit line, then COF has problem.
b. If it’s a vertical entirely unlit block, then first check if the connection socket between COF and
logic BUFFER has problem. If not, check if the connection socket between the logic BUFFER
and the logic board is normal. If yes, replace the logic BUFFER. Finally, if the problem still
remains when the replacement is over, then replace the logic board.
[7 flexible ribbons attached to the bottom of the screen.These ribbons are called COF's (chip on flexible)]

In my opinion, your Plasma TV has problem in video data processing board and / or in panel and needs to be replaced. But as per my knowledge, no company / manufacturer is offering parts / boards any more for Plasma Tvs. Few Brands offer replacement with LCD TV on discount price. Please contact your TV Brand Helpline for further info.

    Hi-

    Thanks for the info, if your TV is within the warranty period still call your manufacturer for free service, if its not suggesting you send it over to a tv repairman so that they can check on the mainboard of your television.

    thanks for using fixya!

Three kinds of detects count for this problem. It could be the Logic board, or the Logic Buffer board, or the PDP panel. Just drop your tv to the warranty depot shop to repair.

    There are flat ribbon cables that leave the panel and plug into the
    driver boards mounted along the bottom of the unit. If reseating the
    cables doesn't fix the problem you've probably got a bad panel.

    please dont forget to accept the solution if you are OK with it.

    thank you

Green vertical line on videocon 42inch plasma tv


Hello Depending how wide the line is their could be two possible causes.
I have two questions for you.
1. How wide is the line.
2. Does it run from top of screen to bottom of screen?
If the line is thin a single strait line then it is possible the PDP has gone Bad (Panel). (Screen). The screen will to be replaced.
If the line is at least 2 or more inches wide then its a buffer board which can be replaced. LG calls this board Hand insert Boards or display driver boards..

Vertical white line down centre of Soniq PT42SH plasma TV.


One of your "X" buffer boards is defective. In Panasonic plasma tv's they are located at the bootom of the set and connect directly to the plasma diplay panel via a thin ribbon cable. The board you want to replace will be directly in line with the discolored vertival line in the picture. The part number is on the circuit board and usualy starts with "tnp..." or "txp..."

Black Vertical Lines in screen


All I can tell you is that you maybe have left your T.V. on a channel that didn't move for so long, or maybe someone else did and it burnt the screen. Plasma's run off of plasma gas to create the great picture and they collect on the screen and stick. What you need to do is go to your menu and look for "screen burn protection" and put it on white and let it sit for 20 minutes. All of one color such as white doesn't harm your T.V. The only way anything burns is like a bright white line in front of a black background.
