It sounds like a dead pixel. if its under warrenty you might be able to get it fixed. If you purchased a extened warrenty they'll be able to fix it no problem

SOURCE: Black line down the center of screen

I had the same problem to and I fixed it.
At the bottom of the plasma there are six or seven ribbon cabbles that come out of the panel and connect to like driver boards. Each ribbon drives that section of the panel. Mine had it down the centre so I unplugged that ribbon cable and on the underside of a metal plate attached to it there are four big resistors and four small ones. The big ones labelled 100 required resoldering. Once they were resoldered it worked just fine.

50 inch hitachi ultrvision tv with a thin black line going across..and 2 red,1 green thin lines going vertically tv is 7-8 years old...is this a cheap fix or just get a new tv?


screen connections, not a job for the amiture as it relates to the screen connections on the ribbon, you need to remove screen, then with a large area to work with thats flat remove the screen casing and then remove the boards and then the screen ( paper thin) this is the dangerous part as you can brake the screen or even cut yourself. you need to remove screen and place down on a large flat area (padded flat) and you will see the ribbons on the side of the screen. you need a heat gun or soldering heat gun and heat them up and without moving the alignment push down on them so they stick back down, a roller helps as keeps the air from getting stuck in the seal, after put some heat tape over the connection/s each line relates to a connection on the screen. when refitting put pads that are the right size and shape over the connections before fitting the case, then the problem will not happen again with the screen but like i say its not for the amiture to do as it takes patients to remove screen and you have to keep it level at all times or it will crack.

TV screen has a thin horizontal line in center


this will only help until the next time it is out of alignment but if you slap the side of your tv about where the line is it should straighten out but there is no telling how long it will stay straight......My sons tv was doing that and i had a tv when i was young that did it that is what my mom told me to do and what i told my son to do and it works.... the problem is an alignment or conection problem from dust most likely.

Black line down the center of screen


Usually this means pixel, but I would question if the line is mostly near right side or left side of screen? If more to one side this could be a bad board inside. for more info ctechnicians.com

Black line in center of screen


These black lines on the plasma screens are very fixable.  There is a dry solder joint on a circuit board at the bottom of the plasma that needs resoldered.  There are 6 or 7 "ribbons" along the bottom of the screen that correspond to vertical sections of the display, so you just follow the black vertical line down to figure out which one is faulty.  I just performed this fix successfully on my first attempt on a Gateway plasma, but it will work on most plasma's, specifically Hitachi, gateway, LG, Hyundai, & Akai. I think they may all have LG boards, my gateway did.
I can't really describe very well what to do, but I assure you it is fixable.  If anyone is near nashville, I might be able to help you out.  My email is tomp2000@juno.com.
thanks,
ST

Vertical, pencil-thin blue line appears after 10 minutes of viewing (any source)


I would suspect a connection breaking down as the set heats up. A shop will probably have to put the set in a stand to hold it while they check for loose connections or defective components inside. Not a DIY job by any means. If this line went completely through the picture either vertically or horizontally and stayed there then this would have indicated a failure in the Panel itself. A thin Line any where on the screen consisting of one pixel in width is a Panel Failure according to Hitachi.

My picture is black except for a thin horizontal line


hi When you let the line to long it will burn in!! you need to look into the VERTICAL output section. Most notably check the solder joints on the vert output IC and ESR the caps. If you don't know what any of that means, then take it to a professional. good luck
