This might be due to the screen not receiving drive signal from the screen driver board; dry solder connections, broken bus lines, and or defective screen could be the problem. I would suggest taking the set to a qualified TV repair shop and having them diagnose and repair this issue, due to the damage that might be caused by the removal of the broads to get at that part of the set.

Black vertical line on screen


this tv has 3 drive boards at the bottom of the tv, inside the back, hard to get to them, there is one in the middle , and one on each side, they usually cost arount 100 dollars, the drive board below where the line is, has probabily gone bad, but about 20 percent of the time, you can undo the ribbon connector where the line is, and reconnect it, and sometimes it will fix it,

Black line on middle of screen


Hopefully you still have under warrantee. If not, sorry. This line if memory serves me right is because the tv has 2 picture panels on each side of the TV (they join up together to make one picture). Toshiba did not realize that the panels will start slipping thus creating this fine line from the top of the screen to the bottom. They have revamped the newer models and placed glass to adhere the panels together. Even though my TV was under warrantee I got a new one and have had this one for 1/2 year and now the picture just blew (there is sound but no picture.)
Take your TV back if it is under warrantee.

Dry solder joints on the pins of the vertical integrated circuit may have caused this problem Tap each I/C lightly with a plastic screwdriver handle to find the intermittent one. It is the one with a heat sink attached.

Black line down the center of screen


Usually this means pixel, but I would question if the line is mostly near right side or left side of screen? If more to one side this could be a bad board inside. for more info ctechnicians.com

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
