    I have a vertical black line going down the middle of the screen of my screen. I have had it at the repair shop now for two months. The repair man has tried to contact the sanyo people but is not getting much help.

    This site has given me more info than sanyo or the repair person but don't know if it will get my tv repaired.

That could be poor solder connections on the resistors located on the ribbons from the panel to X boards or the X boards themselves. Need to located the resistors, pull the board, and physically look for ring cracks near the ribbon connectors..

You have a loss of horizontal deflection caused by either:

1. Defective horizontal deflection circuitry
2. Defective horizontal deflection yoke

Both of these are in the high voltage circuits and I recommend you see a TV technician for an estimate..

You can contact Hitashi to see if your tv is under warranty...thats the link to contact them..

There are two boards at the bottom of the set connected to the panel. Follow the black line to the boards(it will be inline with one or the other) either that board is bad or the panel itself is bad . The boards do not meet exactly in the middle.

hi all .ive had the same problem,a thick black line down screen.sometimes it flickers from top to bottom and other permantly in view.but i have solved it.forget your ic boards and taking apart tv.have you got either a ps3 or wii connected to tv.if so unplug power lead from socket and relocate in seperate socket.make sure the lead is completely free of any other leads and you might just find this works.i think the power lead creates some sort of frequency that the tv picks up .good luck hope it works

Black line in center of screen


These black lines on the plasma screens are very fixable.  There is a dry solder joint on a circuit board at the bottom of the plasma that needs resoldered.  There are 6 or 7 "ribbons" along the bottom of the screen that correspond to vertical sections of the display, so you just follow the black vertical line down to figure out which one is faulty.  I just performed this fix successfully on my first attempt on a Gateway plasma, but it will work on most plasma's, specifically Hitachi, gateway, LG, Hyundai, & Akai. I think they may all have LG boards, my gateway did.
I can't really describe very well what to do, but I assure you it is fixable.  If anyone is near nashville, I might be able to help you out.  My email is tomp2000@juno.com.
thanks,
ST
