All of a sudden my tv only displays a 3/4 inch line down the center of the screen. the sound works fine and changes when I change the channel on the remote. I called a television service professional and was told that it may be a "vertical card". Researching this "card" online had yielded 0 results. I however have found several suggestions based on the same problem only with a Horizontal line. now I do not know if this card exists or if it is a componet that can be easily replaced. if anyone here has any information that may help me with this problem please reply

Re: Vertical Line in center of screen
Never heard of so called card myself but ,is the line your talking about from top to bottom or from side to side in the middle?straight across middle is called horizional which means vertical problem so you have either bad capacitors 35uf 100v ,1uf 50v, or bad vertical output ic.

Try changing the input device to something you are sure works. Switch off TV manually, switch off power, remove plug and retry after 48 hours. If problem persists, please refer it to a qualified service technician.
Modern televisions have screens divided into sections. Each section controls all the rows in its area, and it is controlled by its own video separate video driver. If you are missing a line in a section, then a problem has occurred with the driver board in that area. It will be pretty expensive to fix, I hope your warranty has not just expired!

Hi Shailendrar , your problem sounds like vertical collapse , the whole picture has collapsed into a thin , very bright centre line ? maybe the result of dry solder joints , does banging on the side of the tv temporarily fix ? if so , the circuit board requires inspection for bad solder joints . Alternately the vertical chip/transistor may be blown , replace as required. Cheers T
My LG tv has suddenly got a problem with the picture. Whilst watching the tv with no problems at all,
the picture was suddenly reduced to a thin vertical line down the centre of the screen
and an awful smell seemed to come from the tv
There is a short ckt in your tv in horl. section.
1 isolate power from horizontal section.
2 check for normal output from power supply.
3 check parts in horl output section
a hor.output transistor
b diode & cap in h/output trnsformerckt.
c check for print.
d if all are ok check for eht transformer.
e if every thing becomes then reconnect hor output section supply.
f put on the set.
I would suspect a connection breaking down as the set heats up. A shop will probably have to put the set in a stand to hold it while they check for loose connections or defective components inside. Not a DIY job by any means. If this line went completely through the picture either vertically or horizontally and stayed there then this would have indicated a failure in the Panel itself. A thin Line any where on the screen consisting of one pixel in width is a Panel Failure according to Hitachi.
