If you can take the TV to a repair place, they can look it over for you and give you a price and tell you want the problem really is, cost is around 50 dallors to look it over, and then you can make up your mind if you want it fixed, a lot all times this is the chippest way out. if its not worth fixing your only out your time and only $50. The price to fix it could cost you what a new one runs.
It sounds like a bad panel, which is not what you want to hear. Replacing the panel on a Plasma TV usually costs more than just replacing the TV. However a bad panel causes vertical lines exactly as you describe.
How old it ur tv,ur plasma bulbs might need be replace.Could be the plasma tube it bad because long times use.But ur plasma screen it self could damage kind radiation not worth repairing.
U alway make deal with the repair man come out for estimate.Cost u like u repair with him.
Make sure ask him come out for no cost some charge $40 come out.
If the Video (Picture/Pix) is gone but you can hear the Audio (sound), then it could mean the YSUS PCB Assembly is gone/kaput/finish. Can replace the PCB, not repair the PCB due to timing circuitry involve. Cost maybe roughly $500 depending where you located. The PCB is located on the left hand side of your TV when you are facing the back (Back open). Might find 3-4 brown flex membrane connecting to the plasma panel. The PCB has a silver or black aluminum heatsink (big) on it. Good Luck.
