Question about LG 42PC3D 42 in. Plasma Television

LG 42PC3D plasma television -- screen split down the middle

My 42" LG HDTV's picture is split down the middle. The picture actually shifted to the right, with the right half now on the left side of the screen (if that makes sense to you).

This only appears when it's on the input for our cable box. When I switch it to my Xbox, the screen appears fine.

Any help? Thanks.

Our 42" LG picture is also split down the middle. It doesn't matter if it is cable or a DVD. I would love to know if anyone has found out the solution to this prob. The TV is only 3 years old...

Half of my screen is fine. Split right down middle other half is static.


Hi Judy,
A bad Timing Control Board or bad/loose connectors and cables may be the cause. Please consult some TV tech.

Half screen is blank 42lg20 or 42lg50 when


This is likely to be the T-con board. If the entire screen glows but you have no picture on the second half of the screen then it is the main board, not the backlight inverter. If the screen is half picture and half gray it is the T-con board.


Replacement of one of the above will fix the issue.


Please rate if this helped :)

Have 42 inch LG flat screen...for about 3 years...


Take the back off with no power connected..You should have 2 invertor pcbs..one on the left and one on the right..well the side of the picture you cant see is the same side of the faulty invertor..replace this and this should solve the problem.it is the cheapest option..if not..im afraid is is a new LCD screen unless you are prepared to take it appart and replace backlight bulbs :)

Half of screen is green, split down the middle with the other side remaining normal. We have a Wii. HELP! Bought it at Circuit City, and they are gone...........


I never repair Vizio but I am sure this is the cause if this occurs on all video sources; WiI, TV tuner, etc.

LCD panel has 2 flat cables attached to the glass OR the board that attaches to the glass.

remove and reinsert this cable. Just know that if you open the TV you will probably see these cable easily....they will be at the upper middle portion of the back of the TV(inside of course)

There is 1 cable for the left side of the picture and another cable for the right. If the right becomes loose it affect right side of pictur and left cable left side.

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?

My picture looks like cartoon characters from new commercials


I had recently noticed the same thing happening with mine.Then the left half of the screen turned black and has various red, green, and blue vertical lines. The right half of the screen shows has the picture just fine. It's exactly right down the middle of the screen.

It sounds similar to my Toshiba 62HM195 that I posted about except my screen is spit down the middle and my bottom half is messed up but the upper half is Ok.  I have been told it is a bad Light Engine Part # 23405481.
