This is a result of poor conversion of a SD signal on a HD channel.  Go into your settings and adjust the h/v settings to move the line off the screen.  You can do this with a combination of v-position or vsize.

Multiple vertical white lines


hi,
As you mentioned its sounds like the X buffer (Right and left) of your tv is faulty. There are two boards in your tv for driving the X plane of the plasma panel. Normally you can find these board on the top or bottom portion of the TV. . Its part numbers are Right buffer board is 6870QSC107A 6871QRH073A and Left buffer board i EAX35683901 EBR35855501. Before purchasing the boards identify which board is faulty. That you can find easily. Check which portion of the screen have vertical line in right or left side of the panel. The board for that side is faulty.
You can find these boards on the following link.

"No Signal" on channel 9


Appears you are getting a weak signal at the channel 9 frequency. If you are using a signal splitter, try replacing it with an amplified unit since splitters always do the deed but they can and will reduce signal strength significantly.

Also remember that digital signals are not like the older analog ones that they replace. They are not subject to ghosting but are weaker and susceptible to all sorts of interference such as a leaf, rain, etc. Your antenna is good.
You also might try raising the antenna. The higher it is the better it works. (use some wire to further support additional height) Why do you think transmitters are so tall?!?!?

Low sound on my Vizio 50" plasma


Most of HD channel broadcast in 5.1 channel sound. Regular channel broadcast in 2.0 channel sound. You TV only have 2 speakers so you will expect the sound will be low compare with the regular channel.

Hope this will help!

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


All I can say is when you watch T.V. the plasmas run off of plasma gas and when you leave something on for so long it burns in the screen. I have the same T.V. and when watching like the weather channel it leaves lines but they go away. If yours are permanent then you can't do anything, but it may help if you go on your remote and go to "menu" then look for "setup" and scroll down with the arrows on your remote. Look for "screen burn protection" and select "white screen". This will make your whole screen white and it may take out the lines. If you let it sit white it won't hurt it. All one color won't hurt, the only thing that hurts is like bright white lines in front of a dark background. Just give your T.V. a break from time to time ESPECIALLY ON VIDEO GAMES. T.V. shows that are HD usually have their channel icons that move or are very dim and they won't hurt. Just go to what I told you and let it sit about 20 minutes, if that doesn't help, then the T.V. you have i believe comes with a 2-year standard warranty and if it's under warranty take it back if you have the reciept. If you don't have the reciept then call 1-800-SAMSUNG.

Vizio P42 model Sp42 A


I had the same problem. I bought the TV with the same symptoms and couldn't find a solution. So just on a hunch I tried different button combinations on the front of the TV while I turned the main power switch on in the rear. One I got to the Channel up and Channel down the TV came to life and works great. So just hold those 2 buttons down at the same time while you flip the switch on the back. Hold them for about 10 seconds and then you should be good to go.
