Question about Mitsubishi PD-5010 50 in. Plasma Television
Misubishi pd-5010 plasma monitor. 2 vertical black stripes. One from top, one from bottom. Reach to mid-screen.
Both appeared in the last 2 weeks.
Heared crackling / pop and then vertical stripe appeared.
Stripe is 12" tall, inch wide.
Am I dead?
Unless the monitor is under warranty, it would be less expensive to replace than repair. Finding a new plasma display panel to replace for the repair would be difficult as well. Sorry for the bad news, however, it is the correct answer.

Press the menu on the TV and see whether the menu is effected. If the Menu if effected, then this can be in your video cable or Plasma Connector issue. but most problem is in the flex cable of Plasma. some other cases cannot be fix and replace new Plasma Screen
Please try the following instruction, to solve your issue:
This problem can be caused by several things,
First i suggest you to look for poor connection between Plasma and ribbon wire connector that connects to the board, just press the connectors firmly and this may solve your issue, if you still have problems then i may be due to any one of the following.
-a connector on logic or address boards(in this case the lines would be localized to a half or less part of screen)
-a defective logic board that do not send the right address pulses to address board;
-a defective address board-but again it will impact only half or less of screen,
There is 60% of chance you will need a new screen. The problem you may have is dead driver (part of a screen).
There is some solution for it but not for long time. PDP panel and address driver on it not separated. If one of 26-40 drivers is going out, you need new screen.
Other common problem with lines on screen -- buffer boards , high ammount of failure for these boards due to poor electronic design ( 1-- voltage needs to operate controllers on buffer board just to high for small SMD IC ,2---they are not strong enough to drive address electrode). In future it will be changed for more reliable parts .
Please leave me comment, if you need furthur assistance
