Panasonic TH-50PZ80U right half of screen black left side blurry and multi-color

post #1 of 6

Hey guys,
First time posting been reading the forums for a while, I just recently had my panny start acting up in this last week or so. As you can see on the picture, the right side of the screen goes black while the other goes blurry and kind of a multi color. If I unplug it and leave it for a few hours it will go back to normal and work for a few more hours some times days, but always returns to this eventually. I opened the menu and it shows on the blurry side, so I'm wondering if the panel is going bad or if its a board inside? Any idea what could be up with it? Just wondering if its worth attempting to fix or if I should just go with a new set. Thanks for all the help.

Anyone any ideas?

Is time for a new one my friend, it will eventually die on you anyways and would cost too much to repair.

Latinoheat, thanks for the respond... That's kind of what I figured but just wanted to be sure, looks like I'm heading shopping this weekend :/

This is so easily fixed it is not even funny! Please ignore the above post telling you to throw it away. eek.gif

I picked up the 46" of this with this problem. It is a loose cable between two boards. Nothing else! Common fault. It's now in my living room, looks just as good before. These are awesome TVs.

See my video on how to fix this problem:

(as your TV is USA model, the test pattern codes will not work... skip past those tests for now. 5:35 onwards has the fix.)

Really all you need to do is reset the LVDS cable between A and D board. Sometimes it may be a good idea to tape it down, if the problem recurs; but it's been fine on mine for the past 6 months, and it's been through several moves.

PM me if you need service documents for this set.

Obviously, don't touch anything live once inside the set; if you unplug it for 30 minutes before beginning work, it'll be fine.
