It is either a bad Plasma Panel or the Driver Board that drives that part of the screen. Some of these you can't get one without the other which means big bucks for a Plasma Panel. If that is the case it would not be worth repairing.
Replacement of the unit would be as costly.
Hope this helps,

Try re-seating your upper and lower buffer board connectors. These boards run the length of the set on top and bottom. Since your line is from the top going down I would check that one. The connector will be close to where the line is showing up on the screen.

I'm not sure if this model is the one that has resistors that go bad. You can actually purchase a pack of resistors in a kit. It will come with solder, the resistors and instructions. You can lay the tv out and take the circuit board out to find the blown components, and replace the bad ones. Takes about an hour start to finish and will cost around $65.00. It has been a few years since I did this, so I'm not sure on the price.

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..."

Two lines in the screen vertical


I don't know how integrated the driver circuitry is with the display but the screen is addressed like a matrix (XY) and some of the drive circuits for those areas have died. This could be an expensive problem; I hope you have some remaining or and extended warranty.

Black line down the center of screen


Usually this means pixel, but I would question if the line is mostly near right side or left side of screen? If more to one side this could be a bad board inside. for more info ctechnicians.com

Vertical, pencil-thin blue line appears after 10 minutes of viewing (any source)


I would suspect a connection breaking down as the set heats up. A shop will probably have to put the set in a stand to hold it while they check for loose connections or defective components inside. Not a DIY job by any means. If this line went completely through the picture either vertically or horizontally and stayed there then this would have indicated a failure in the Panel itself. A thin Line any where on the screen consisting of one pixel in width is a Panel Failure according to Hitachi.
