The plasma display screen is made of a matrix of elements connected to cables along the side and top. On your unit, some of these many, tiny connections are making contact intermittantly thus losing the elements in that area. These contacts are held in place with just pressure and if that is disturbed, you lose that line of elements. Try squeezing the cabinet of the TV on the outside at the top in the area of the loss and see if that makes a difference. May have to go inside and see if the contact assembly is disturbed or warped or something.

I have the same problem. My repair shop says I need a new plasma screen. Dell says replacement screens are unavailable. I now have a 42" paperweight.

I had the same problem to and I fixed it.
At the bottom of the plasma there are six or seven ribbon cabbles that come out of the panel and connect to like driver boards. Each ribbon drives that section of the panel. Mine had it down the centre so I unplugged that ribbon cable and on the underside of a metal plate attached to it there are four big resistors and four small ones. The big ones labelled 100 required resoldering. Once they were resoldered it worked just fine.

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.
