Hope it's a $60 problem

Seeing lines vertical and horizonal like little boxes on certain colors on the tv mostly visible on red and black hope it is a reasonable fix only a year old set.

Saw a similar problem on a sony, and have seen it on VGA PC projectors.... it's most likely a display driver or display decoder card problem..... far from $60.00 for just the parts cost of the replacement card...... however, less than a year old, it should be under warranty..... some warranties even go 2 or 3 years, but check your paperwork first..... find a reputable tech with panasonic warranty certification to fix it..... (btw, about the only thing fixable for under $60.00 these days is a blown fuse, and that's pushing the envelope now as well, what with "trip charges" and "time on site charges" and "popping the cover charges", etc.....), but the guy doing the work has bills to pay too.... he does what he does for a living, and you do what you do for a living, that's how you both get paid, that's how i get paid...... so if it's more than $60.00, but less than half the price of a new set, pay the man, make him happy, and make your family happy........ sorry for the philosophizing, but i've been on "both ends of the stick", and i've seen both sides of the "equation"..... there is a happy medium in business and life, you get what you pay for, and you pay for what you get...... hey whattamidoin? giving a Torah lesson with repair advice????? oy veh!!!!!!!

It has tripple vision and looks like a bow tie.

hi, sounds like a convergence issue. try this...
  • Look through your manual. Your manual will always give you the most specific directions for your particular model. Look for an "adjusting convergence" or "set manual convergence" section.

  • Enter the menu on your TV. Use the remote control and bring up the menu.
  • Choose "Convergence." This may be under "Picture Settings," "Function" or "Advanced Options."
  • Select a color. You will have red, green and blue to choose from. Do each one, starting with red.
  • Press "Enter." A crosshair pattern will appear on your screen.
  • Adjust vertically. If there is a horizontal red line visible, press the up or down arrow keys (or channel up or down) to adjust the convergence until the line is superimposed on the horizontal-center line of the white crosshair.
  • Adjust horizontally. If there is a vertical red line visible, press left or right (or volume up or down) to adjust horizontally. Do this until the line is superimposed on the vertical line of the white crosshair.
  • Save settings. It is important to save your settings when you are done, instead of simply exiting the menu.
  • Repeat these steps for all colors.

  • good luck!

    Tv is about 4 years old. Suddenly developed two

    Your plasma screen is made up of 1080 verticle lines and now a few of these lines are not working. This is the screen itself and needs replacing.

    VIZIO P42hd PS42a plasma Picture has two vertical lines (one red/orange, one blue) going down the right-hand side of the screen. Lines are clearly visible

    The panel is almost certainly bad. The only fix for this is to replace the whole panel which would cost more than the whole TV.
