Send it for repair... It sounds like the Y-sus board and the upper and lower Y-drives... This unit uses the same panels as the Philips 42pf7320a so it shouldn't be that expensive for parts...
I wouldn't personally send it to Dell - instead look through the NESDA web site and locate a repair center near you and take the unit to them for an estimate.

Two vertical black lines on the screen of my ps50b430


Unless someone played with the TV and disconnected the plasma display from the address buffer boards that go under the screen the prospects aren't good.

All vertical lines in all plasma TVs I have seen are operated by chips embedded in the fabric of the display as well.

When they fail they'd either short or burn open.

In the first case they'd prevent the TV from coming up, in the second they'd typically manifest as either black or a random color vertical line like you have.

This is not repairable...sorry.

The odds of this being something else is fairly minimal in my opinion.

Please don't kill the messenger...

Vertical line on LCD TV Panel


Had this same issue on right side of 52" about 1 inch from side but had 3 vertical lines that disappeared after 40 minutes. Have Samsung LNT5265FX/XXA and about 16 months old. LCD Panel itself had to be replaced to fix it, fortunately had extended service plan
