Panasonic TH-42PX50U problem
I've had this panel since 2005 so I've gotten 15 trouble free years out of it. The other day my wife said when she turned it on it had a bunch of colored horizontal lines across the display that eventually went away as the panel heated up. Of course when I turned it on it didn't do it that time. Flash forward a couple of days and now it's doing it every time we turn it on and I noticed a few faint black horizontal lines off and on last night.
Any clue/suggestion on what it could be and can it be fixed (I'm an engineer so I have no problem taking it apart and swapping boards etc) AND this is the biggest question would parts be available?
I'd love to fix this panel as it still has (had lol) a great picture and I don't want a new "smart" TV as I don't like the big companies "privacy policies" as it seems they don't take your privacy seriously and just want to sell your information.
