Question about LG 42PX4DR 42 in. Plasma TV

Open Question

LG Model DU-42PY10XH

Hi,
One half of my tv screen is black with small colored lines running fron top to bottom. It has sound and a picture on the other half although the color is not good.. It looks like there is too much contrast. The set is only 2 years old and should last longer than this. Any suggestions?
Thanks
HD Dane

SOURCE: lost half of picture

This can be on the matrix drive board, or the display assembly itself. It is possible to also have a defect in the address decoding area that will cause this.

The procedure is to swap out the suspect boards to determine where the fault is, leave the working boards in the set, and then follow up any necessary calibrations that are necessary.

Lg plasma DT50py10. When turning on bottom half of screen is snowy and has lots of white lines for approx 20 min then it goes away. Top half of screen is normal


sounds like your bottom buffer board is on its way out .
Will also need to check the y sus board as this some times causes the buffers boards to fail.

Vertical rainboow lines on the left half of the screen


its likely that the lower y-drive panel has died.this is a very common problem with this model.the easy way is to remove the panel from the set completely,power it up and you should be greeted with the top half of the picture.this means ic failure,usually the bottom one for some odd reason.not replaceable unless you have the gear,these ics are available from dalbani(nikkai)for those interested.be extra careful with the four ribbon cables when removing/refitting.damage to these writes off the display panel.

Issue with LG Plasma tv model # DU-42PX12X


Another "same probelm"

My set has encountered this magical 50/50 split screen and it seems to be quite a problem since I am not the only one researching this issue. LG was of no use because of course it is just out of warranty. Any solutions on fixing this or am I out of money in buying a new plasma?

Screen split with black bar through center, top of picture shows in bottom


It sounds as you desribe, the vertical output IC and or the b+ feed capacitor off the Hi voltage transformer feeding the vert. IC its required voltage. Not a really hard job to replace, but not for a handi person to do. This should be left to the professional, as there are no user serviceable parts inside this set and with the HI voltage and the safety issues its best to call somesone to assist you with this repair. Good Luck
