    Hi AVF,

    I was wondering if anyone knew anything about an issue i'm having with my Panasonic TH50PX80A plasma. As shown in the attached picture, there is a pink vertical stripe going down the right side of the screen and i haven't got any idea as to what may be causing it or how to get rid of it.

    Thanks in advance for your suggestions.

    I think it's magenta rather than pink, and indicates a loss of the green signal to that part of the screen. It could be a connector that's worked loose, or a cable fault, or something more expensive, sadly :(

    CI. Wonder if its more than just coincidence that that ping band is where most people's vbi appears. Funnily enough when i was looking to buy my ST50b i visited a PCWorld that a ST50b on display, that had a green band in exactly the same place as the OPs. Pink band. Still didn't put me of buying one though. Yes i know his is an older model but just makes me wonder is all.

    Yes does make you wonder, though the PX80 is a completely different panel.
    Its likely a coincidence that its when it is.
    Sadly its likely a panel failure, sure I've seen another PX80 with it recently.
    Could check the leads though likely new set time.

    PX80 ( of all 3 sizes ) was a fantastic TV in its day , sadly in today's through away world a 5 to six year old TV with a duff screen is considered scrap . Manufacturers could play a part in this by not pricing new screens at the same price ( or more ) than new completeTV's

    My PX80 was awful! My sis has it now and its running fine, not a patch on the set I have now though.

    Manufacturers want you to buy a new set as often as possible, it keeps revenue streaming in and allows for the low prices people want to pay now.
