    I have a 2-year old Panasonic TH-42PX60U plasma TV and it looks like a similar problem jusy happened to me. I have a permanent 3-inch column of black on the left had side of my TV and other "boxes" of shimmering colors. It's not the connections or the aspect view. Looks like part of my TV died. So frustrating. Did you have to replace your TV? Were you able to fix it?

    I have this exact same problem, and panasonic would not do anything to help me. I have a black bar code vertical line, then a red line, the another black bar code line, then a multicolor line.

    This is on the left side as well and I had had other issues as well they had to replace my power board 11 months in. This TV is just under 2 years old.

    I've enjoyed almost 2 years of trouble free ownership of my PX60, when last night a vertical black stripe appeared . I've tried unplugging, and removing components, resetting to factory settings, but the stripe still appears across all inputs. The TV is out of warranty, I called Panasonic and they suggested I call a technician. Is there anything else I can do before I call in the cavalry? Comments welcome

    Exactly the same problem happened with my TH42PX60B last's 22 months old and has not been used extensively as it is not in our main lounge. Panasonic would seem to have a serious problem and need to address it. I bought this at Currys Xmas 2006....they had loads of them and relatively cheap at the time.....perhaps we now know why!!

    i have a black bar down the middle of the tv. The left side of the black bar works; the right side does not.

We are have the same problem, left side has a moving screen, then black bar, then moving screen, then black on the remainder of the right side. This TV has been used very little. Panasonic has a problem and should fix these at no cost.

If the TV cost to much to repair, would you be willing to sell it for parts? My front glass screen has got a chip in it. Cant see paying 500 just to have a new one installed.

Vertical lines on my 40 inch lcd mitsubishi hdtv 1080

Similar problem with an eleven and a half month old LT-40148. Approx. 1 inch vertical banding line on left side of screen on all inputs. After about two weeks, same problem on the right side of the screen.

Fortunately this occurred two weeks prior to the one year warranty expiring.

Called Mits customer service and they referred me to an authorized service center who I happened to have dealt with before.

They picked up the set. The front panel (LCD screen ) had to be replaced. Set was gone for two weeks as parts were not in stock. There was no charge. I hope this screen last more than a year.

Black marks

I am getting a black cloudy mark on the right side of the screen. It's not even on the part where a Wide screen picture would be, it starts at the wide screen area and gets darker going to the left towards the center. The TV is just over a year old. It's Wal-mart POS Ilo brand.
