Hitachi 42" Plasma 42EDT41

I have a 1.5" VERTICAL line about 1/3 of the way in from the right side of the screen. I bought this plasma 3 years ago and this issue appeared a week ago. It comes and goes, but appears more often and at longer stretches as the week has gone by. I called Hitachi support, but they were useless. Hitachi's response was basically leave us alone it isn't our problem.

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.
