    Black Line Vertical going down middle of screen!

    I have the same problem!

    Also sometimes a black square. These issues come and go as the TV runs longer, so is it heat related? Is the lamp/bulb dying?

Calabras, you are right it is heat related but there is no bulb or lamp in this set. There is a design flaw that causes this. There are several threads in this section that detail precise fixing instructions.
Here's a link to forum that shows what you need to do to repair the tv. This is a very inexpensive fix but is a bit time consuming and requires a lot of common sense. http://www.avforums.com/forums/plasma-televisions/462873-black-line-fault-hyundai-hpt4240-fixed-2.html
The dismantle is not the same but soldering the chips on the orange ribbons is exactly what you need to do. So pay attention to that part of the tutorial.

Try changing the input device to something you are sure works. Switch off TV manually, switch off power, remove plug and retry after 48 hours. If problem persists, please refer it to a qualified service technician.

Hitachi 50" hd TV displaying black lines on screen


Sounds like your YBL-Y Buffer lower board is going out. There are 3 boards here. The Y buffer upper which controls the top half of the display, The Y buffer lower controls the bottom half and the Y-SUS main control those two boards. They work in unison. Usually if one goes out you have to replace all. You can also get lucky and just repalce the YBL and all may be well. Now if they are vertical lines up and down the OSD-On screen display, then this is indicitive on dry solder joints on the D, G E, F boards. Hope this helps...

52" Samsung that the top half of screen goes black.


the HDTV has a heat-related problem check your fans. Do they remove heat? the vertical chips paint the screen from top to middle and, middle to bottom so; your top to middle vertical chip is overheating as is your video chip; that is why you have "glitter" in the back ground. get rid of the heat or, bye,bye TV.

Several runs had bad display panels, but other failures can cause a shutdown condition. There is a fuse in the power supply that must be removed in order to determine the failure by checking voltage at the fuse socket. I suggest you find a local authorized Hitachi servicer to continue. This is not a simple fix.
