When a plasma panel is shattered while running it shorts internally and sometimes kill the buffers, y-sus and/or z-sus, also if it is powered on while the screen is broken.

That said, always test the buffers before powering on the TV, in your case the Y-SUS or logic board may be bad.

There's this thread which the Y-SUS made an effect that is very similar to buffer failure, I had no idea and recommended a logic board swap to the user.

pretty sure its pins 1 and 2 on these sets also think you have to dissconnect the cable between the main and control board maybe wait for another member to confirm its the rite procedure

That's it, shorting the AUTO_GEN pads on the logic board with the LVDS cable disconnected, the TV will start on with a black screen the jump between colors and patterns each 2 seconds or so.

Doesn't look like it, the horizontal lines are the cables not properly inserted or the buffer boards being damaged, the bad image is from the Y-SUS, something is damaged.
There's a single vertical line in one of the pictures, that could be not reversible, or just part of the pattern since it does not appear in the other photos.
