Re: line down the cent of the tv
If all you get in the screen is this line coming down from top to bottom the set has a problem in the horizontal deflection circuit and it needs service,the lamp will never cause a symptom like this.If you are familiar with tv service you can give it a shot and look for the problem,it might be only a loose conection in the circuit I mentioned but if you are not too familiar you will need the help of a servicer.Let Us know if you need more information.
A 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

This is the fuel filter weight, push the fuel line through the center flat side facing out, push the fuel filter onto the pipe, now pull the weight down on top of the filter this also crimps the pipe to stop the filter falling off
hi all .ive had the same problem,a thick black line down
screen.sometimes it flickers from top to bottom and other permantly in
view.but i have solved it.forget your ic boards and taking apart tv.have
you got either a ps3 or wii connected to tv.if so unplug power lead
from socket and relocate in seperate socket.make sure the lead is
completely free of any other leads and you might just find this works.i
think the power lead creates some sort of frequency that the tv picks up
.good luck hope it works
This is the deal. Your picture tube is going out. How thick is the line. As it gets wider that will tell you how much more time you have. Was the TV dropped? There is a way to adjust this but you have to get into the back of the TV and if the static discharge is not done properly it will kill you. Don't mess with it. It is now cheaper to buy another TV on craigslist or your local paper than trying to repair it. Hope this helps. JimmyC
Hi, Depeending on the thickness of the lines matters. If the lines are Black and about 1-2 inches thick it may be a bad bottom buffer board or a bad panel (screen).
If the lines are thin 1/16 to 1/8 inch it is most likely a bad panel.
You can open up the set and depending on the model, see the thin board/boards running across the bottom with ribbon cables going to the panel. You may be able to attempt reseating the ribbon cables, but be careful as some retainer plugs break very easy.
If the lines are thick black and the reseating doesn't correct it you may be able to buy the coresponding buffer. Unfortunately some bottom buffers are actually part of the panel. If you are not comfortable taking it apart then call a professional but be aware labor charges start around $200 not counting parts, panels start at $600 up to over $1000
hope this helps
When you have the back off, look for the flyback (high voltage) transformer. This is the part that has the thick red wire protruding from its top which attaches to the top of the picture tube with a suction cup. On the flyback there are 2 controls, the bottom one is screen and the top one is focus. Turn the bottom control (screen) down (counterclockwise) until the white lines go away and the brightness looks normal. Then turn the top control (focus) until the picture is nice and sharp. If the F connector has been pulled out and the TV has RCA (red, white, yellow) jacks, use those jacks and set the TV to INPUT.
Without looking at the set I would think the problem was in the optic block. An expensive repair, but, since the set is only four months old it's under warranty.
Go to the service section of Panasonic.com and find an Authorized Service Center (ASC) in your area to have the set repaired.
We have had issues like this that ended up being the digital convergence module. There are surface mount electrolytics that suffer from dielectric absorbtion (dry out) and they must be replaced. It's much easier to replace the module than to repair it, the convergence will need to be reset once this is done. If you have the original remote control you can gain access to the service menu to reset the digital convergence.
