    I have a similar problem and have attached a picture to illustrate. Mykids were playing with their Wii and in the middle of the game thepicture disappeared and flashed a white screen then a black screen andthen immediately went to this white/black/white vertical stripe downthe center.

    Would this be indicative of a bad driver IC as well?

One of the driver IC'S has gone bad. Need to replace just the driver IC or the board that the IC is on and that should solve your problem. If that doesn't do it, then the BAD NEWS IS THAT THE PANEL IS BAD. Replacement is you only option then. Good luck. GURU JAY.
