it seems to be a bad connection somewhere but I disconnected the ribbon cable and got a verticle line of snow instead of a blank line. the line is about 34 mm wide and starts 285 mm from the left edge starts on the Blue and goes to the Red pixels. so if they are 1mm wide that would be 34 bands of color.
I would sure like to figure out the solution to this one or I got a TV I need to throw away cause the o'lady is gonna bust my balls if I can't fix this!

Hello; I am John at J D Electronics in Poland, Maine. I have an LG TV that was donated to me. It is a plasma model DU-42PX12X. It had 1 inch wide red and green vertical bar on the right and a blue and yellow on the left. These bars appeared intermittently. pressing on the control board would make the bars go away. I have read many blogs on this problem and they all say to replace the control board located under that huge A / V input board ( held in by 4 screws on the large aluminum frame). The original part is # 6871QCH038A The replacement ends with a C instead of an A Aprox 90 to 135 dollars. This board is used on many different LG and Zenith models and is a HIGH failure rate part. I like to know WHY parts/boards fail and I found out why this board fails. There is a large square IC in middle of the board aprx 1 1/8 inch square. This type of IC is called BGA or Ball Grid Array. The solder connections cannot be seen , since they are under the IC . This IC was not properly soldered at the factory and that is why hundreds of these sets failed. I used my hot air soldering station on it's highest setting to heat up this IC . The IC must be directly heated from the top and some heat on the bottom of the PC Board. Liquid flux should applied to the 4 side edges of the IC prior to heating. The bars are now gone! To get to this board, remove all perimeter screws and all middle screws of the back cover. The A V board will hinge back to expose the control board if you unplug the cables to the side inputs and the one to the button board. The set will still run face down on a table with something to prop up the bottom screen so you can watch the bars. If the set was run for a long time with the bars, there will be some darkening where the bars have " burned" the screen. This is perminent, but usually acceptable.

SOURCE: Vertical line on LCD TV Panel
No solution here.
I have the same issue... A vertical magenta line, about 2 pixels wide, appeared about 1" from the left side of my 52" LNT5265FX/XXA. Of course, this appeared after the 1 year warranty... For me it started showing up about 22 months from purchase date. It goes away when the TV warms up after about 30 minutes or so. Sucks that such an expensive product has developed this issue w/in 2 years.
