LG plasma 50 inch tv with a fine vertical black line in the center of the screen that runs from the top of the screen to the bottom

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.

I have a LCD Panasonic Viera. There is a 2 cm long vertical black line middle of the screen. What can I do.

There are videos on YouTube on how to fix the black line problem on plasma TVs. There is specifically a nine year old boy named Nico that shows how the repair is done. It is a simple problem but time consuming because you have to take the back of the TV off and maybe two other large parts. The problem is caused by solder that separates or breaks and you just take a small tipped solder iron and reflow the solder. It might take someone that doesn't know much about TVs, a couple hours but it is fixable. There is an AV forum online that shows pictures and instructions on exactly how it done:
While the posts on this forum are old-most of the plasma TVs are basically the same as far as how to fix the problem. We're getting ready to takes ours apart because it has a black vertical line on the far left of the screen. Our problem started about a year-and-a-half ago but we've just been too busy to fix it but I'm tired of it so we'll try it.

Vertical Black line 3 inch width on Plasma Samsung 42C96HD after 2 months of use

On al the plasma tvs there are control boards on the lower part of the screen that control the vertical images. If one of the chips on one of the boards fail, have a bad connection, or no ground it will result in a thick black lne down the screen. Seeing as the tv is new I would get the warrantee repair on it. There is a possibility that there is a problem with the screen itself but more than likely its the boards.

Plasma TV technical difficulty

if you can still see the picture its most likely the control board that's going bad, you will still need a tech out to fix the issue.

Hi guys.  This is totally fixable and pretty easy if you have tech skills at all.  I performed this fix even before I found the following thread that will explain it, and it worked flawlessly!  Read it entirely and follow carefully.  this works on many different models of plasma's.

Hitachi 42" Plasma 42EDT41

Had the same problem.  Was quoted $800 to fix.  Searched the internet for 6 months and found this thread on


Read through all the posts.  Very simple fix, but you have to have some mechanical inclinations or you can cause more problems than you started with.  I was up to 5 of the black lines, but decided to attempt the soldering these guys did and fixed it all for the cost of a soldering iron!  Even if you decide not to attempt it, it gives you somewhere to start to tell a technician.
