Problem solved! All I have to is press on + and - of the volume buttons and hold there and then press "menu" button and it resets the whole thing and the black bar had disappeared. Tv screen is back to normal.

This is either a circuit board problem or the panel could have a bad tab

There is a vertical black bar along the left side of my TV. It started as a thin yellow/white bar and has grown to be about 2 or 3 inches wide, blocking that portion of the screen.


The LCD wafer has gone bad, and more lines will begin to appear over time. It can be replaced but the cost may be comparable to replacing the entire television.

You have a gumed up basting device, You can try to fix yourself but should be taken to a bernina teck for a fix. Take the end cap/head cap/ side panel/ needle bar panel off. It is one screw on the left side.
Remove neddle
Find the needle bar
On the needle bar there is a black small pice, it is round and has a little tab that stitcks off it.
Pull the needle down and push/pull/wiglle soft on the small black tab.
There is a small pin inside that should clip into a hole in the needle bar.
This should get your machine sewing again but the basting device realy should be cleaned and adjusted, should be around $45-100.
Hope this helps.

A black line running verticall down the middle of


There is no invertor board on a plasma tv. The fault is the X address buffer board. This is located on the bottom of the screen and runs horizontally the whole width of the screen. If you remove the heatsink plate that covers the x address boards and you need to look at the screen ribbon at the same position as where the bar is (in the middle).Vary gently lift the Xbuffer ribbon lock and gently take out the ribbon.Clean the contacts very carefully with a fibre pen or an electrical cleaning fluid.Insert ribbon back and heatsink and check.Here is a picture of the board and ribbon

a 1 inch bar is associates with 1 ribbon fault. So if the bar was 3 inches in from the left of the screen, the faulty ribbon will be 3 inches in from the right working from behind the TV. If cleaning dont cure the fault, then the Buffer IC will be blown and order a new centre buffer board (you can buy off Ebay)
