Hello JA Customer
I have been fixing Tv and Electronics since I was 5 years old
With better than 20 years experience and 17 years in business
This is a Plasma!
This type of problem is never good!
You either have a bad addrees board or a bad PDP
The only way to be sure is to replace the adress board
if this does not fix it
then the plasma panal is bad becuase the drive IC's are part of the ribbon cables that com e from the panal and are not replaceable
