Considering that it's a LCD type, that is not a good sign; the individual pixels are addressed by a matrix and that kind of indicates that a vertical driver for that column is failing and these are often not replaceable by human hands having pin spacing too close for shaky techs.
If you want to confirm that this is heat related, you can buy a can of freeze spray from any electronic supply house and spray into various slits in the housing to see it you can restore that column temporarily with it.

Black vertical line


This seems to be a problem with some older panels. If you are prepared to tackle the problem yourself then try the following.
WARNING there are some very high voltages within the TV which can be LETHAL so the greatest of care should be taken.

With the back of the TV removed, use a hair dryer and apply warm air to all the ribbon cables in turn until you find the one which causes the fault to disappear. Now turn your attention to the faulty ribbon and remake the connections as necessary.

While watching tv half the screen goes black


Download software from the Phillips web site. Use a usb flashdrive to transfer the download to the TV. This worked well for us and our picture is better than ever.

Picture goes black mins after watching


Bad flyback transformer. It has a short in the winding making the Horizontal output transistor heat up so when its too hot the set goes into protection.

My tv is 2 years old and in the last month or so in the middle of a show the screen will go black and a red line runs down the middle and it lasts for about 5 min and a little pop sound and the picture...


It appears you may have had a line collapse caused by a poor connection in the line output stage, it would be a matter of resoldering around this area. Now that you say it will come on could indicate that a component has now failed as a result of the line collapsing, more than likely the line output transistor has now also failed & would need replacing.

Samsung 42" Plasma -Black vertical line when turned on.


It sounds like an Intergrated Circuit (IC) has fried. Even on a good day, this is not something you can attack at home. As a tech (and as an owner of that model samsung), I'd need a map & tools to know what's going on. Your best bet in this situation is to contact Samsung and let them recommend an authorized service center in your area. Sorry I can't be of more help, but this is a rather serious problem.

You have a burn in problem from watching widescreen movies.If you have access to a signal generator or tv setup disc run a perfectly white screen on the plasma for about 30 min.This should help even out the pixels on the display.

Vertical Lines all over then starts to move lines back and forth


you should first check all the cables inside the set to make sure they all are seated properly, check some other sources like a dvd player and see if it does it on a dvd, after that it is probably a defective main board
