Question about Hitachi 55HDT51 55 in. HD-Ready Plasma Television
I have a red line that is vertical from top of screen to approx half way down screen that appears after tv has been on couple of minutes.The line is approx 4 inches from right hand side of screen and is a single column of pixels
Hitachi did in fact stand behind their product and resolved the problem. My hats off to them! Panel was replaced due to faulty ribbon cable supplying signal from one of the drivers. Unfortunately for my specific issue there wasno other solution as the ribbon cable in sealed inside the glass panel.

Snoopmikeym - Have you found anything out on what is causing the line?? I am completely frustrated with Hitachi no tech help what so ever. The nearest service place is in a town of about 500 people and 30 miles away... I doubt they've worked on a 55" plasma before....

I have this issue on same unit. $5000 and 2 years, no extended warranty, Hitachi service asked if I want to pick it up or should they junk it. Estimate for repair $5340! This is not an uncommom problem and Hitachi will not back their product. According to all sources, there is no fix beyond panel replacement. All in all an expensive lesson, I certainly will not knowingly buy another Hitachi product.
