I agree with Lukster, 9 times out of 10 it's the plasma panel.

Re: Blue Vertical Line

Sounds like a panel defect or a loose ribbon cable, but more than likely it's the panel itself

Was playing with the Playstation 3, when the kid unpluged it Vizo lost its color-turn on the cable (Charter) and it only shows 3 colors Pink Green and blue

If you are using the box for signal to the set unplug it for a while and then plug back in to let it reboot--may or may not solve the problem but easy and worth trying. Do the same with the TV if you want.

Most likelly it is your DVR that has a problem. Their are a lot of issues with those DVR's from the cable or satellite companies. I would recomend swapping it out.

what are you trying to do? to hook up the tv you can use the cable output from the charter box into cable input into the tv (meaning cable as in coax cable) otherwise you can use the colored ones. red white an yellow are rca jacks but the 5 wire you talking about are prob compondent cables which are red green and blue. connect those to the tv and the other red and white ones are for audio to the tv you may have to set the charter box to select which output you are using and the tv to the right input for the rca it will prob be input 1 for the component it will be component 1
let me know if thats what you needed

Significant volume decrease when using Comcast cable box

you might have to talk to comcast about that most signals are low for reasons of conservation of bandwidth, they may also be sending 5.1 which tends to be lower volume and adds surround in.
mono is always loud, and that is what you get with 75 ohm coaxial cable (single screw in ).
hope this helps.

Closed caption

You have to activate the closed caption option on your charter cable box. Power off your cable box and immediately push the menu button. A menu should appear where you can toggle captioning on/off. Good luck!

Vertical line

Sorry, you have a defective LCD panel. If your TV is still under warranty, contact Sharp to get the TV exchanged. Otherwise, LCD panels cost more than the TV is worth.
