My 42HDS69 42 in. Hitachi plasma has several thin green vertical lines running down the middle of the screen. The lines appear after the tv has been on for awhile and disappear and reappear as I continue to view. Any idea how and if I can fix this?

Thanks,

    I have a Hitachi 42HDTV79 that I purchased less than 2 years ago and about 3 week ago it developed a band of color down the right side, usually bright green, about 3" wide, right at the edge of the widescreen picture and the 'grey screen.' It has gotten worse. It occurs whether I am watching cable or a DVD. I called support at Hitachi and they were of no help, other than to say that I would have to have a service call, at my expense of course.

    Anybody else out there have this issue? The TV was bought new, delivered directly to my home and has never been moved. We have no children; it's just the two of us and it is on maybe 3-4 hours a day on average.

    I have the same problem, my 42HDS69 42 has 3 bands(left, center, right) of lines, they would come on after the tv's been on for a while, but they would disappear if i turn it off for couple hours. i read other posts in this website which indicate the cause might be dry solder joins. anyone knows how to fix it?

If the set is still in warranty, call for warranty service. If not and you feel comfortable working on the set, carefully open up the back and reseat all of hte cables and connectors. This can be caused by marginal connections inside the set.

Keep us posted on your progress and results.

Thin green vertical lines


if its only one channel its your cable service, if its constant try unpluging your tv from the wall for 30 seconds to reset it, also try reconnecting any AV cables for the source you are using, If you are using a Coaxial cable unscrew it and check to see the copper needle is not bent or damaged.

There are two boards at the bottom of the set connected to the panel. Follow the black line to the boards(it will be inline with one or the other) either that board is bad or the panel itself is bad . The boards do not meet exactly in the middle.

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..

I think that you have dry solder joints on either the vertical scan board, the focus board, the line output stage, or the chroma panel. Hope this helps.

50" LG Plasma - Thin red vertical line in middle of screen


I work for a auth LG service center and each time I have had this symptom we had to either change what called the T_CON control board or the Plasma display panel itself. You need to cocntact LG @ 800-253-0000 report your problem and they will find a service center in your area you should have 1 year warranty parts and labor.

Vertical, pencil-thin blue line appears after 10 minutes of viewing (any source)


I would suspect a connection breaking down as the set heats up. A shop will probably have to put the set in a stand to hold it while they check for loose connections or defective components inside. Not a DIY job by any means. If this line went completely through the picture either vertically or horizontally and stayed there then this would have indicated a failure in the Panel itself. A thin Line any where on the screen consisting of one pixel in width is a Panel Failure according to Hitachi.
