Your unit is a Plasma TV, it hasn't a bulb.
The symptoms you've described is caused by faulty upper Y-scan drive. It is a rectangular board located at the left side of your unit(if you are facing at the back panel). You have to replace this board to resolve the issue.
You can do it yourself because no soldering required, let the unit unplug from the outlet for 1 hour to drain the voltage from the power supply before you replace the board. Pull-out the connectors from the existing board, put-in the new board, re-insert the connectors and you're done.
I would advice you to check the actual part no. of your board that is printed on the white sticker on the board itself to get the right replacement online. Click the link above to see how it gonna looks like...

Hope I helped you.
Have a nice day!
Thanks for using Fixya.

SOURCE: I have a philips 42pf9431d/37 and I have black and green lines on the right side of the tv what is the repair for this

Sorry, unless you know tv's nothing you can do and the fix is very expensive. Basically not worth it
Hope you have warranty and take it back
It is fairly common to have few "dead" pixels that are not obvious
I know this is not the answer you are looking for but all new electronics are made in such a way that it is usually not worth the trouble
After all this is why they try to sell you extended warranty and if you pass you are stuck and have to buy new

Vertical white line down centre of Soniq PT42SH plasma TV.

One of your "X" buffer boards is defective. In Panasonic plasma tv's they are located at the bootom of the set and connect directly to the plasma diplay panel via a thin ribbon cable. The board you want to replace will be directly in line with the discolored vertival line in the picture. The part number is on the circuit board and usualy starts with "tnp..." or "txp..."

Similar problem was solved by transporting the wrong TV some tens of kilemeters by a car :-) Maybe there was some junction error inside, or a longer power-off state was needed to fix the problem?!
