Hi

Thanks for using FixYa.The issue is with the failed convergence (STK) ICs which needs to be replaced. It's not a difficult job if you want to do this yourself, you should require some basic knowledge about soldering-resoldering components. To start with you'll have to open the back of the unit and then replace the ICs (STK ICs) which are located behind the black heat sink and also check the resistors as if they are short the ICs might blow again after sometime.
There are repair kits available which includes repair instructions with the parts, if you want to do it yourself, you can buy and repair it yourself. Please rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.

Thanks
Rylee

Blurry, purple bar across middle of plasma tv screen


Plasma screens are extremely susceptible to getting broken from any impacts to the face of the screen. What you are describing sound very much like distorted or dead pixels. It may not be a fixable issue, you may have to replace the entire unit or live with the purple bar. The reason you don't notice it as much when the screen is dark is because purple is on the darker end of the spectrum, and will be most visible in contrast to lighter ad brighter colors.
