You most likely have a bad address board or the conntection is dirty between the address board and the PD (Plasma Display Panel). This is not a do it yourself repair as any damage to the cables to the PDP would require a PDP replacement.

the lines is the screen its self there is a board that the screen fits to over time it heats up and comes away from the screen and you get lines, you can sometimes push on the screen top to get them back but its only a temp fix you will need to take the screen out and remove the cover and put some shims in place on the screen. this is not a job for the faint hearted as it is a delicate job.

I have a verticle black line about 3 inches wide on my panasonic

Normally when a line appears on the screen of a plasma or LCD it indicates the TV needs repair. There are circuit boards inside the set that, if bad, will cause problems with the picture. The only troubleshooting the manufacturer will offer is to unplug the TV for 30 minutes. If that doesn't solve the issue, the unit needs service.

Call Panasonic at 800-211-7262 to see what they're willing to do for you. If you're under warranty they will service the TV for sure. If you're out of warranty they still might give you a break--they've been known to do that.

I hope I've provided you useful assistance and that this information allows you to make an informed decision as to how to proceed from here. Please be sure to vote on my response. I hope I've earned a good rating from you today.

Please post a comment if you need additional assistance so that I can help you further.

I have a 42' LG plasma that has now has a 1 1/2 inch verticle stripe on the right side. It used to come and go but now rarely goes away. Any ideas?

I believe that this could be a type of "burn in". If you watch anything with a black stripe on the sides or bottom of the screen often, then this could be the problem. My suggestion is to watch things that have no black side bars for a while (>week) and see if this eliminates the problem.
Good Luck!!

51 big screen apex tv, convergence or verticle IC?

If the lines are thin and close together running horizontally, it may be the vertical driver, but that usually takes out the resistor and sometimes the diode in the B+ for the vert. Also you must replace the caps that caused the problem in the first place.

Verticle lines on screen

This is a very easy fix. Your cable box is not grounded correctly. To fix this you need a AC Plug adapter. This will change your TV ac plug from a 3 wire to a 2 wire. This may sound funny, but trust me on this. I have fix a lot of TV in NY doing just this.24001fc.jpg
