Question about Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS30 Digital Camera Black
Pictures are ok. Now developing a black 3/8 line on display. Is it display or something else?
Since the pictures are ok, it doesn't appear to be the sensor. What happens when you bring up the menu? Do you see the lines then? If so, then it most likely is the display.

Remove the SD card and slide the lock switch on it to the unlocked position. If it's already there then slide it fully to locked and then fully back again.
If this fails then you need to try another SD card to see whether it's a camera fault. If the camera is at fault then there's nothing more you can do other than to return the camera to Panasonic for repair.

I don't have a solution to the first part of your dilemma (why it won't playback) but I do have a solution for deleting the file. On your camera are "hidden" file folders. When you connect your camera to your computer, you probably only see two folders (that's all I see for my DMC-LZ8). But there are more, and your undeletable picture/video is in one of these folders. Find the folder and you'll find the file. Delete it from your camera using the computer to do the command. Problem solved. Okay, so how do you find the hidden folders? I have a Mac, so my process was this: 1) Connect camera to computer; 2) Select/open camera icon (looks like "volume disk"); 3) From top Finder bar, select File then Find; 4) Select the camera volume to limit your search to the camera (not HD or other external hard drives you may have connected to your computer); 5) Select "Kind" and in the next dropdown button "Folders". Voila. Happy searching. My hidden "undeletable" video files were in a folder called "100_PANA". I selected them then moved them to the Trash. Be sure to eject your camera properly (don't just turn it off or disconnect it).
Good luck. I hope this helps.
PS - My theory is that this occurred after an upload to my computer got unexpectedly disconnected before everything finished loading or else the camera got disconnected from the computer incorrectly even if the upload had already finished (see above comment to eject camera properly). In either case, the blank/black screen, unviewable but "there" on the camera taking up memory photos/videos problem happened to me, too. The above actions resolved it for me.
