KevinWhiteJA :

Hi, welcome to Just answer

KevinWhiteJA :

What all is connected to the TV ? Do you see same thin line with DVD etc as well ?

Customer:

Hi a sky box and a dvd player is connected and yes the line is there with dvd as well, it is a black line when you have a blue background or a purple line when normal pictures are showing !

KevinWhiteJA :

Hi, sorry I think we got disconnected...I missed your previous response...can you please copy and paste that here again

Customer:

Hi a sky box and a dvd player is connected and yes the line is there with dvd as well, it is a black line when you have a blue background or a purple line when normal pictures are showing!

KevinWhiteJA :

OK

KevinWhiteJA :

when you turn it on do you hear a clicking or a popping noise from the back of the unit ?

Customer:

No

KevinWhiteJA :

any blinking lights on the front ?

Customer:

No

KevinWhiteJA :

Unfortunately I do not have a good news...from what you have described the problem seems to be with the bad plasma panel (screen), to replace the panel will cost a lot...you can contact the manufacturer to check the price

Customer:

Ok thanks!

KevinWhiteJA :

are you willing to repair it yourself ?

Customer:

No not if it needs a new screen, i would have easily replaced a circuit board myself if it had been that was the problem!

KevinWhiteJA :

I understand....If you do decide to get another set please make sure you get as much extended warranty as you can 4 or 5 years...just a recommendation...You can get back to me if you need any assistance and I will help with no additional charges.....Is there anything else I can assist you with today ?


 

Customer:

No, yes i did have a 5 year warranty with this tv but it ran out in 2011! Thanks again. Will this be a one off payment for your advice?

KevinWhiteJA :

OK, yes.. I believe it will be one time only....Excellent feedback is appreciated if you are satisfied with my assistance....Have a Good Day

Customer:

Ok you too!
