Unplug the unit and let it sit for a minute. When you plug the unit in and try to power it is there any change in the light? Does it go green and back to red or just stay red?

I have a LG DU50PX10C with a black vertical line

Plasma televisions have anywhere from 24 to 40 drivers that control the individual rows of pixels comprising the screen. Should any of those drivers fail, the screen will display a 2 or 3-inch black vertical line, and probably shift the image to one side or the other. Driver failure is considered a manufacturing defect, and is not preventable by the owner. In some instances the line can be caused by faulty pixel ribbons that run top to bottom, either faulty of just loose in their connectors etc.

Then there are Stuck Pixels, Pixels become "stuck" due a failure to turn on from its standby state. Occasionally, these pixels die in rows, spanning the full height or width of the screen, or be only a few inches long. These "dead" pixels can turn on randomly, or stay a different color other than black. This is an issue caused from the wire filaments inside the panel failing, or an offshoot from a driver failure. Impact to the screen can cause a row to stick as well, even if there is little to no external indication of damage.

However, in most cases, inspection by an engineer is usually necessary to diagnose exactly what has caused the fault, unfortunately this can be an expensive prospect, not to mention the potential for a painful bill for the repair alongside the inspection fee. If your TV is in its warranty, don't hesitate to claim on it.
I hope this helps you, or at least gives you a better idea of what you potentially could be facing. Good Luck.

My LG Plasma tv reverts back to standby when switched on

Stuck on standby problems may be due to leaky capacitors in the power supply, (had this problem myself), If the capacitors are swelled or deformed at all, change them. Use the same type of capacitor and make sure you put them in the same way, You nead to be handy with a soldering iron. Not a job for a novice though.

LG 42 Plasma try's to turn on but just goes back into "stanby" ?

Check to see if you get Va and Vs voltages from the power supply. There should be some wires running to the y-sus. A couple of those wires will be labeled va and vs. Are they present? There will be a sticker stuck to the panel somewhere telling you what they should be.
