A panel in the middle of the screen is usually closed captioning TEXT 1 or TEXT 2. Please press the closed captioning button on your remote control until it is off or find the closed captioning setting in your television's menu and set it to off.

If you are connected to a cable tv box or a satellite receiver you may also have to disable captioning on it.

Thanks for using FixYa. From what you have described it seems to be the issue with Y-main however, the logic board should also be checked. These boards are located on the right side of the unit and to check them you’ll have to open the back of the unit. Once you have opened the back also check for any blown/bulged capacitors.
All this is only recommended if you have electrical expertise & know how to solder/re-solder components as these units contain high voltages even when in off position. The cost to get this repair will be around $300 and a bit more if the board is replaced. Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.

A picture is worth million words in this case.

Generally, red bleeding in plasma TVs is usually caused by bad (or differently adjusted) Y-sustain board as well as bad power supply.

try to find a part number on the board. you can punch this # into google to find a part. hp used different brands so you will have to get the number off the board. look for buldged caps, maybe you can fix the board if it has some. google "bulged cap" to see what they'll look like

HP doesn't make the price for the main board for your TV available on their website, so you'd have to contact them to get an idea of the cost. Likely it will cost at least $300 but could cost a lot more. If you've had the set for 2.5 years, you'll want to ask yourself if you want to put $300 to $600 or more into the repair of an out of warranty TV when you can purchase a new 42" Viore LCD that's 1080p from walmart.com for $578. Their 32" of the same brand is $349. They have other more popular and more expensive brands as well, but the point is what you'll spend to repair your TV would buy one that is brand new with a fresh warranty. And keep in mind that Wal-Mart's extended 2 yr service plan costs less than $100.

I hope I've provided you useful assistance and that this information allows you to make an informed decision as to how to proceed from here. Please be sure to vote on my response. I hope I've earned a good rating from you today.

Please post a comment if you need additional assistance so that I can help you further.

Can you solder and do you know what capacitors are chances are the pop you heard was a cpacitor opening up on top 2200uf 25v

Just turn it around and remove the back cover and take a peep inside. You will find some wax around a capacitor. The capacitor has burst and caused the pop. De-solder it and remove it. Get another of exactly the same specifications and solder it to the module. And happy viewing gain.

It is hard to find a company that will tell you where the parts come from. Most parts you cannot purchase in america.

All HP iq77x all-in-one PCs suffer from the same problem of a faulty motherboard. This is primarily a soldering issue on the graphics chip,which develops cracks in the solder balls. The PCs contained a separate graphics card, which goes faulty first. This can be removed and the display connector can be moved on the motherboard to use the on-board graphics. This will eventually show the same issue. A short term fix was to heat the graphics chip with a hot air gun or other means (plenty of suggestions can be found on-line) which sometimes works for a few weeks at most. The only 'permanent' fix is to have the chip professionally removed and re-soldered; an expensive option.
If you are lucky, your PC is still wired to use the add-on graphics card, in which case you might be able to remove this and rewire for the motherboard graphics.
