Thin horizontal line across screen
You haven't specifed nothing about the model number or brand name of your flat panel teleivison. i assumes that it to be a picture tube based one and posts this solution before you.
A thin horizontal line across the screen with sound output is OK, is the sympton of total failure of vertical sweep. This may be due to failure of vertical output IC or loose solder terminals of that IC. The vertical output IC will heat up while working, and repeated heating and cooling may make its solder terminals to get loose. Just open your TV, pull out the board that contains vertcial output section, turn it upside down, resolder all the solder terminals of that IC by applying a little more solder, without making any solder bridge in between terminals. Check the voltage to the vertical output IC also. If this resoldering method does not help you, replace the vertical IC itself with same type and number will solve your TVs problem. OK.
