    Yes I had it diagnosed by a repair man Hitachi recommended in my area. He is not sure what the problem is but wanted to order new logic board, I said no it cost way to much, and I wasn't sure he was straight with me. Thank you for your answer.

Well, being non-tech person, you should call Hitachi service guys as your TV has problem with LCD Panel circuite. Only concern and related service center (Hitachi, in your case) can fix this kind of problems. Thats my suggestion and advise.

You likely have a bad connection on one of the circuit boards.
I believe this problem is not for DIY repair ; if warranty has expired better take it to an authorized service station.

    .Tap each I/C with a plastic screwdriver handle to
    find the intermittent one. It is the one with a heat sink attached.

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.

Hitachi 42EDT41 plasma model-1" black stripe on right side


This is an old post but maybe it will help others. You will have to take the back off of the TV. On the bottom you will see ribbon cables coming from the screen and connecting to 3 PC boards. Take the screws out that holds the cable down. Underneath you will see 4 resistors marked 100. All you have to do is re-solder the resistors and your vertical line will be gone. You need to be good at soldering or you could damage the ribbon. The only ones that you have to re-solder is the ones in line with the lines on the screen.

Hitachi 42" Plasma 42EDT41


Had the same problem.  Was quoted $800 to fix.  Searched the internet for 6 months and found this thread on avforums.com

Read through all the posts.  Very simple fix, but you have to have some mechanical inclinations or you can cause more problems than you started with.  I was up to 5 of the black lines, but decided to attempt the soldering these guys did and fixed it all for the cost of a soldering iron!  Even if you decide not to attempt it, it gives you somewhere to start to tell a technician.
