You have a bad component in the vertical circuit of your set. If you hit it on the back of the cabinet with your hand which will "jar it" and the picture flashes back on then you have loose connection. If nothing happens then the vertical circuit has a bad component most likely the Output IC. (Chip) Stargazer

No picture no sound

Did you mean the picture is collapsed only in the middle horizontally(white line appears on the middle part of the screen)?
If that is the case, maybe vertical IC failed or loose connection.

Blue/black vertical line in the middle of screen

Sounds like a bad connection on a ribbon cable or plug comming or going to the LCD display. This is something you should not try to fix as these circuits are very very fradgile and you can easily break or tear a ribbon cable . Call the manufacturer to get a tech to assit you. Good Luck
