Question about Sharp Aquos LC-42D62U 42 in. LCD HDTV
Have a Dell monitor and computer (don't have details at the moment). Other than annoying black line, screen looks fine and no other problems apparent. This happened a couple of months ago and then problem disappeared.
SOURCE: line across screen
I have the same problem with my 42 in. The line started to show up randomly about 1 month after i got my tv. The line isn't a line of dead pixels since when i change the aspect ratio or the tv the line moves up or down. I called sharp about the problem and they said it had something to do with my computer but i don't think that can explain why the problem shows up on all my tv inputs.

If you have a thin line running down the screen, you may be looking at a service issue right off of the bat. Here is a few things I want you to try before calling sharp, 1. Reset the unit from the setup menu
2. Unplug the unit for 2 minutes then plug back in. If that does not work. Take digital pictures of the line and call sharp immediately. Make sure you tell the rep you want to sign up for the aquos advantage program that they have(extends your warranty 3 months free of charge!) because that will get you priority service on with your issue. If they cant resolve that line ,9 times out of 10 they will replace the unit. hope this helps you

If the line is present on all inputs, it is most likely a bad panel (screen). The screens are either not available or cost more than a new TV.
Not good news I know but at least you can save the $100 estimate fee.
Best of luck
