Default Phillips 42" Plasma - Horizontal lines across screen?!!? Pictures attached -- HELP!!

My screen display shows dozens of horizontal lines across the top 2/3 of the display.

What do you think is the problem here? I paid over $1500 for this and its only 14 months old!!


THANKS!!!

Well, it's certainly not good. In fact, it seems pretty bad!

I assume it's happening on all sources and inputs?
If so: Probably a bad video processor.
Call for service.

Did you buy extended warranty on this set? Your going to need it.. Turn if off and unplug it.. Call Philips Sevice Repair Department tomorrow and get this set looked at. Not going to be cheap either to fix though if you're out of warranty

No -- I did not buy the $830 extended warranty for it - WHO WOULD????

I would expect a proudcut that I paid $1500 for to work for at least 8 years.....


Would you pay that much???

I already did all the troubleshooting for it - nothing fixes the problem.

No that's crazy to pay $830... But not you're going to have to pay for repairs.. These guys want over $100 bucks to come out to your house. Don't forget the parts. Might be time for a Funai here.. Just a sugguestion.

No You can't fix this problem. I seem is on laptops LCD screens which I also repair when the call needs to be addressed.

I have got some response from a local TV repair man - he said the Y buffer board is most likely bad - is this something I can order myself and replace myself??

THANKS!

Most likely not. The Average Joe shouldn't just open the back of a TV and take out boards to replace. You could royally screw something up.

How much is the part and how much for labor?

A computer tech has little bearing on TVs. Are you in software or hardware tech? If hardware is your thing, you may have a chance in replacing it yourself.
