Power off the unit and disconnect all video cables from it. When you come back up, make sure you are at a blue no signal screen. If the black line is there, then you have a serious issue that would require service.

If not, it is most likely and loose cable, or bad cable which needs to be replaced. It could also be the source (i.e. if it is only happenin watching TV, try a DVD to see if the issue persists

LG plasma 50 inch tv with a fine vertical black line in the center of the screen that runs from the top of the screen to the bottom


Try changing the input device to something you are sure works. Switch off TV manually, switch off power, remove plug and retry after 48 hours. If problem persists, please refer it to a qualified service technician.

Techwood 42" plasma screen television


Do not turn this television on! Any electronic that smokes is NOT GOOD! The smoke and accompanying smell is from plastic and solder that is being melted by a short on one of the TVs logic boards. Call a local TV repair man this is not an issue you could fix yourself and will most likely be better off buying a new television. Stay away from off brands like these, spend the few extra bucks on a name brand like Sony, Toshiba, LG, or Samsung and you won't encounter these types of issues.

If an authorized service repair center will sell you one. However looking at the reviews you may just want to replace the tv since even service centers have issues repairing the tv.

Plasma color TV screen developed dense black vertical line


This is the best solution for your problem as a 40 year experience with wires etc. Go to the source of your cable signal connector . Open it and clean the terminals with emery paper , sand the end of the cable shiny clean from corrosion , get a new barrel connectors with gold terminals if possible lengthen the ends of the cable , insert and tighten good, use thick rg-16 or rg 40 cable with good insulation ends crimped professionally with a crimpier or buy ready made , not from dollar store. Get a gold plated professional splitter if you need one or two , it will cost about 15 or more each . Make the cable runs as short as possible, using the thick good cables. If needed get a signal magnifier. From radio shack or the source etc. Connect them good and tight . Ground the splitters . Problem solved , you will get crystal clear channel 2 to 7 including 3 and 4 . Isolate the TV cable from other cables and power wires. Vitally

42 inch samsung plasma tv black vertical lines


Hi, Depeending on the thickness of the lines matters. If the lines are Black and about 1-2 inches thick it may be a bad bottom buffer board or a bad panel (screen).
If the lines are thin 1/16 to 1/8 inch it is most likely a bad panel.
You can open up the set and depending on the model, see the thin board/boards running across the bottom with ribbon cables going to the panel. You may be able to attempt reseating the ribbon cables, but be careful as some retainer plugs break very easy.
If the lines are thick black and the reseating doesn't correct it you may be able to buy the coresponding buffer. Unfortunately some bottom buffers are actually part of the panel. If you are not comfortable taking it apart then call a professional but be aware labor charges start around $200 not counting parts, panels start at $600 up to over $1000
hope this helps
Thanks
Eric

If these are thick black lines, this is most likely line frequency noise entering the set. you may have a leakage from the DC ground on the secondary side of the powersupply to the AC side, or a bad filter capacitor(s). Most of the time it is the filter caps that give these types of problems. If you are connected to cable TV service, or an outside antenna you can also have this problem from an AC ground loop return. Also if there is a device such as a VCR connected to the TV and it has problems, it can cause this as well...
