    I have the same problem. Ours is on the left side - bright green. Luckily it doesn't show up on a black screen, but it is still a pain. I'm going to contact Samsung as it's still under warranty.

    I have a Samsung PS-42V4S with black & white lines.



    Looking online many people seem to suggest dry solder.



    As out of warranty had a look but discovered that the chips on the ribbon cables don't look soldered but instead in a kind of plastic depression.



    any help appreciated

This could just be a cable problem.
Remove the back cover and carefully unplug all the flat cable connections on the left hand side (8) check / clean connections and then plug them all back in again.

I have a panasonic 48 inch plasma TV which has developed a fault. There is a yellow line down the centre of the screen on all channels. Is the TV knackered?


Hello,

IF YOU HAVE A SOLID BLACK LINE RUNNING VERTICALLY THEN YOU HAVE A FAULTY MATRIX INVERTER. IF CENTRAL THE MAIN VERTICAL INVERTER NEEDS CHANGED. LEFT = LEFT VERTICAL INVERTER RIGHT=RIGHT.........

ANOTHER WAY TO GET THIS FAULT IS WORN OR DAMAGED RIBBON/PLASTIC GOING FROM THE SCREEN MATRIX TO THE INVERTER
Hope this will help in solving the problem.....

I HAVE THREE BLACK LINES AND A YELLOW VERTICAL LINE DOWN THE CENTRE OF MY SAMSUNG 50" PLASMA TV. ONLY 10 MONTHS OLD! WHAT CAN I DO?


The TV should be still under warranty. Most of the flat panel TVs come with a one year warranty from the manufacture. I wouldn't mess with the to void the warranty.
The problem most likely is the buffer/scan boards on the bottom connected to the screen. It controls the vertical image on the screen. The other possibility is the plasma display panel is bad.
Go the warranty route first. This may get expensive to fix.
