If you have an Xbox 360 Elite or a newer Xbox 360 Premium, you should use an HDMI cable if your TV supports it. Otherwise use a component cable.

SOURCE: Toshiba 42HP 84 Black verticle line -- 1 inch thick and running from almost center vertically down to middle of screen

Just repaired one of these with the same fault. at the bottom of the plasma panel you will see a row of ribbon connectors, on the back of the ribbon connectors are some surface mount components. resolder these components on the offending connector, clean the contacts on the ribbon connector and reconnect. unfortunately getting to the connectors is quite a job, so give yourself plenty of time. if this doesn't cure the fault then the poor connection is on the plasma panel which you cannot repair, the only option then would be to replace the panel.
Let me know if you require further assistance.

SOURCE: My 50" Plasma has developed a band across the middle of the TV

I would have it looked at before saying it is burn in, a BLACK horizontal line across the set is loss of data to the display from the Y-drive panel. This is something the customer should not attempt anyway, however, if it is either the upper or lower drive board they are not that expensive. Let me know the outcome.

Plasma screen

do you have the swich on the back of the xbox plug set up for reg tv? Does it work in that mode with just the red, yellow and white wire in the side AV slot? If you were using the xbox on another tv its possible you modified the display settings in the menu. Try hooking it up to a standard tv and reset the setting to default then try rehooking it up to the plazma.

TV went black - Please wait message...

I think you both have faults on the line output stage of your tv either the line output transistor has become faulty or the line output transformer itself has become faulty. If you are able to check this for yourself otherwise find a competant technician. Hope this helps.
