Thin red line on Hitachi plasma

I have a Hitachi 42PD5200 plasma that has developed a thin red line about 4 inches from the left hand side of the screen. There is another one at the extreme edge on the same side but this does not really affect viewing. The line is at the same position as the left hand edge of the picture if you are viewing non widescreen. I have checked all user settings but it is still there. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

If it goes all the way from top to bottom, you have a bad panel. much to expensive to repair

I have a thin red line that is on the far right of the screen.
It fades in intensity but, flashes affecting the over all picture.

I am looking for a cause, or resolution.
The TV is less than 2yrs old.

SOURCE: thin vertical line on plasma, 4 inches from left hand side

According to what i could find, there is no way to actually SOLVE the problem, this is what i did find; The plasma display panel is lighting the phosphors by the discharge of internal radiation. Depending on the screen contents, in rare cases this may cause vertical stripes to appear because of failure to light. Please note that this is not a malfunction.

Hitachi 42HDS69 42 in. Plasma with red lines

I think you have dry solder joints on the tv. Either on the chroma board, the vertical scan board, the line output board, or on the focus board. If you are going to do this yourself please take all necessary precautions against electric shock and discharge all capacitors that you can as a stray spark from one can cause damage to your tv and yourself. If you are not able to do this find a competant technician. Good luck.
