    Thanks for a great site. Your help is much appreciated. My Samsung HP-R4262 shows a black bar vertically on the left-middle of the screen covering the TV image. The bar is about 4 inches thick and has a thin green line running down the center. Any idea how to fix this cheaply? Thanks again.

    My Samsung is three years old and just developed a black line that runs from top to bottom. The line is about one inch wide. I'm looking for a solution.

The plasma display screen is made of a matrix of elements connected to cables along the side and top. On your unit, some of these many, tiny connections are making contact intermittantly thus losing the elements in that area. These contacts are held in place with just pressure and if that is disturbed, you lose that line of elements. Try squeezing the cabinet of the TV on the outside at the top in the area of the loss and see if that makes a difference. May have to go inside and see if the contact assembly is disturbed or warped or something.

Black bar running from top to bottom in the screen.


There are horizontal and vertical relays in plazmas that go out over time and cause this to happen , You can get an estimate from a local tv repair service in some cases they can give it to you over the phone. Good luck.

Black Vertical line appeared on my Daewoo Plasma


Bad connection somewhere along the bottom or top of the panel, there are boards most likely along the bottom of the screen that control vertical drawing, a connection that breaks as it is heated up sounds about right. check the connectors along the bottom. Be very careful because if you wreck em the screen is junk. The connector that will be at fault will be in direct line with the black bar.
