This is a defect with-in the pre-scaler (pixel address) and or timing control circuit. Some people have tapped the back of the tv as a temporary fix to this problem. Though I wouldn't suggest that, you could damage or upset other sensitive circuits a cause a new problem.

If its not under an extended warranty have a tech come take a look at it.

Multiple vertical white lines

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.

Screen is half picture and half black with vertical colored lines

I had the same issue. I could get the tv to work intermittantly by pressing on the boards while playing. This points to bad solder joint, so I resoldered every molex plug connector, and it nows works like a charm.

One green vertical line in HDTV Vizio 42

Try changing the H/V position in the TV Set Up menu. You can adjust the horizontal and vertical position of the screen and move it enough that the green line disappears from the screen.
