Question about Dell W4201C 42 in. Plasma HDTV
I would guess a cable connected to the LCD panel of the TV.
Left Side and Right side of the picture each has a Flat Cable that supplies voltage for that half of the picture.
I would guess that one of the cables is bad or loose.
It is also possible the LCD Panel has some defective part.
I would contact Dell requesting Warranty Repair. If out of Warranty, you can open TV and try reconnecting the wires to the LCD Panel. Specifically, LVDS cable to the Control PWB and the Flat wires from the Control PWB.
CONTROL PWB: This PWB is usally mounted to the upper middle portion of the LCD panel beneath a metal shield. This PWB Provides the signal for the LCD Panel picture.
