Just repaired one of these with the same fault. at the bottom of the plasma panel you will see a row of ribbon connectors, on the back of the ribbon connectors are some surface mount components. resolder these components on the offending connector, clean the contacts on the ribbon connector and reconnect. unfortunately getting to the connectors is quite a job, so give yourself plenty of time. if this doesn't cure the fault then the poor connection is on the plasma panel which you cannot repair, the only option then would be to replace the panel.
Let me know if you require further assistance.

Plasma color TV screen developed dense black vertical line


This is the best solution for your problem as a 40 year experience with wires etc. Go to the source of your cable signal connector . Open it and clean the terminals with emery paper , sand the end of the cable shiny clean from corrosion , get a new barrel connectors with gold terminals if possible lengthen the ends of the cable , insert and tighten good, use thick rg-16 or rg 40 cable with good insulation ends crimped professionally with a crimpier or buy ready made , not from dollar store. Get a gold plated professional splitter if you need one or two , it will cost about 15 or more each . Make the cable runs as short as possible, using the thick good cables. If needed get a signal magnifier. From radio shack or the source etc. Connect them good and tight . Ground the splitters . Problem solved , you will get crystal clear channel 2 to 7 including 3 and 4 . Isolate the TV cable from other cables and power wires. Vitally

I had to replace my Toshiba A105 screen recently due to damage. I installed the new screen myself and it worked fine for a while, but now it has a pink vertical line about an inch thick running down the...


Ok then, take it apart again and make sure all the connections are well seated, check the inverter (circuit board under the screen) the ribbon cable that goes behind the the screen and the block connector that attaches to the motherboard. If all theses connections are well seated and you still get the pink line, the screen is defective and you need to send it back.

Good luck and thanks for using Fixya!!

Verticle line down the middle of lcd monitor.


This is a common problem with LCD screens. It is pixel line damage and the screen is permanently damaged and is not repairable. It will probably get worse. The only answer is to replace it

51 big screen apex tv, convergence or verticle IC?


If the lines are thin and close together running horizontally, it may be the vertical driver, but that usually takes out the resistor and sometimes the diode in the B+ for the vert. Also you must replace the caps that caused the problem in the first place.

Thin vertical line


What you have described is definitely some form of Electrical Interference. Interference can come from a variety of causes. Is the Cable Inputting the Cable Box close to some High Voltage Electrical Lines? Or Are you located near some Electrical Power Station? Or A Police station, where the Radio Transmitter of the Police Station causing the Interference? As I said, there are a variety of reasons. Also, Try to check if the connector is loose at the rear of the Cable Box, or at the rear of the TV. You will have to eliminate every possibility reason. Wish i could help further.
