Color line across the center of a black screen

My Panasonic T.V. started yesterday with a 2 inch line across the screen where I could see colors and the rest of the screen was black. A few minutes later it changed to a wobbly picture with a lot of wavy lines across the entire picture. It may work fine after that or go back to the 2 inch line across the screen. What is the problem?

    I appreciate your help. I have not taken it in to be repaired yet. Is this a costly repair or do you think it's not worth having it repaired?

    I have the same problem. Was working fine last night but then when i turned it on in the morning it only showed a line about 1 pixel wide across a black screen. Pretty sure its a dry solder.

    My tv is a NetTV. The line is a green line that goes on. The line is in the center of the tv screan. Do I go in side the tv to fix this? Please let me know.

    I have had this colored line across an otherwise black screen. Now the screen has gone completely black unless a control on the flyback transformer is changed to produce the line. is this still due to solder joints or is there also a problem with the flyback?

I had the same problem. My TV has 2 to 3 color lines jumping up and down. But as soon as I strike on the body, the picture resume again. I take an electronic technician and soldered all joints with soldering gun, now it is OK. So the problem is the breakage of lead joints and you can confirm by striking the body with hand to change the color lines to picture.

Hi. this is caused by dry solder joints on the frame o/p IC. Resolder all legs of frame chip. Should sort that out.

Line across middle of screen.

The line of color is due to a failure in the vertical circuit. The main suspects are the vertical Ic AN15525A and/or capacitor c308 [email protected]
If you have the capacity to do so, you should check the other electrolytic capacitors in the vertical circuit which are USUALLY located near the vertical IC in most cases
you can purchase the part at

Parallel vertical lines through left side of Panasonic Plasma tv

This sounds like one of the driver boards at the bottom or top of the screen has an intermittent fault. The set will have to be taken in to a service centre.

Vertical lines across my entire screen

My 42" Samsung Plasma HDTV HP-R4252 has a 2" vertical strip of green pixels down the right side of the screen.

My 3 year warranty with Circuit City expires in Nov 2008.. so I hope I'm covered.. can't call until the morning.

Samsung said it might be a logic board problem.. but they want almost $2000 to fix. I might as well buy another TV if Circuit City can't fix it.
