Question about JVC GD-V4211PCE 42 in. Plasma Television
After my 42" JVC Plasma warms up a black vertical line (~2inches wide) appears in the middle of the screen. At times the black line is solid and other times the line seems to faint slightly but distorts the picture image behind the line. Any ideas? I have a Samsung 42" plasma that is doing the same thing. The vertical line on mine, also about 2 inches wide, is also in the center of the screen and goes from the top of the screen to about half way down the screen and sometimes is totally black, but more often has color.
First thing to do is the reset and the whacking test. I give this a 50/50 chance of clearing it up.
ONE: Disconnect the power cord for 4 hours. Then when you power it back up the internal soft codes will automatically reset to factory defaults.
TWO: The whacking test is to just bang or smack the set with your hand on the back, side, top, etc., to see if there are loose connections or cold solder joints inside that are acting up. If so, the banging should knock them back to normal and the set should restore. You might have to use some creative banging and some have had to put a book or magazine under one corner to torque the chassis enough to get it to work reliably.
If these two procedures do nothing then:

Hey there ut-ham, the problem seems to be the result of either a display panel failure, or a defective power supply board. In either case, best solution is to return to dealer. Good Luck!
