(Note: This isn’t an actual repair video)
Here’s a little fun video created by the David L. Jones of the EEVBlog.com, a video blogger who tackles topics in electronics engineering and other related stuff. He thought it was a great strategy to get a top-of-the-line Panasonic Viera plasma flat screen thinking that it’s going to give him years and years of perfect service. Well, needless to say he found out how wrong he was when, after 2 or so years of light use, his unit started exhibiting the dreaded vertical black line/column and thin white stripes problem. He was told that the plasma screen needed replacement but he suspects that it’s just a simple column driver ribbon/cable problem that plasma screen televisions are quite notorious for. But alas, the TV was designed such that you won’t be able to fix the ribbon as it’s permanently embedded to the plasma screen module. The ribbon can’t be fixed or replaced. Dave’s gripes about his experience with the Panasonic Viera is quite entertaining to watch along with some commentary on its impressive engineering design (which, as he pointed out, didn’t do him any good). Um, and see how he fixed the problem with the use of black tape!
