12 year old sony trinitron had one inch black vertical line appear and disapear for 2 hrs. (only on right side)then it shut itself off. Could not get it to turn on again. Picture tube? I took the back cover off and there was an incredible amount of dust covering everything - blew it out with an air compressor but no luck with it turning back on. Is it time to put it on the curb with the trash? or simple fix?

Re: black vertical line on right side (intermitant)
Your problem sounds like the stk type regulator.. Itsnot a really expensive part BUT on a set this old yes you can repair it but also your gonna be repairing it more and more as the capacitors are drying up and the circuit is getting brittle. I wouldnt invest anything in this set. time to make a boat anchor out of it!

top half missing is in vertical circuit of set---if it is a 27 inch and this old consider retiring it and replacing----other option is consider having a shop repair it--a rough guess would be as high as 150 dollars parts and labor is possible for your problems.
No,tv have cold solders inside the tv like vertical IC or around the area.Have a soldering iron,a roll of solders,also know how to do basic soldering?Yes.Take the tv aparts,take a back plastic of the screw driver tabs all around the main pcb,will see the vertical changes,take out the a/c power sourced,resolders those area,will fix this problems.
Had this same issue on right side of 52" about 1 inch from side but had 3 vertical lines that disappeared after 40 minutes. Have Samsung LNT5265FX/XXA and about 16 months old. LCD Panel itself had to be replaced to fix it, fortunately had extended service plan
