It sounds like a bad panel, which is not what you want to hear. Replacing the panel on a Plasma TV usually costs more than just replacing the TV. However a bad panel causes vertical lines exactly as you describe.

Took lg plasma tv off wall when i put it back there is a fine vertical line which changes colour

Hello,

IF YOU HAVE A SOLID BLACK LINE RUNNING VERTICALLY THEN YOU HAVE A FAULTY MATRIX INVERTER. IF CENTRAL THE MAIN VERTICAL INVERTER NEEDS CHANGED. LEFT = LEFT VERTICAL INVERTER RIGHT=RIGHT.........

ANOTHER WAY TO GET THIS FAULT IS WORN OR DAMAGED RIBBON/PLASTIC GOING FROM THE SCREEN MATRIX TO THE INVERTER

HOPE THIS WILL HELP IN SOLVING THE PROBLEM.....

Vertical lines on screen of my 42" plasma

Capacitors on Y-Axis board beginning to fail.
Soon the bars will be permanent - get the tv fixed before they are burned into the screen.
Repair is under $200USD (mostly labor)

Lg 42 in plasma ihave a 6 in discolored line acrossthe bottom of the screen. can it be fixed

Two causes for this failure.
1. The Y SCAN board or YSUS board failure. Your can replace the failed boards with reasonable price.
2. The PDP Panel failure. Very expensive to fix this failure.

Good Luck!

LG PLASMA TV WITH COLOURED LINES OVER SCREEN

If the Video (Picture/Pix) is gone but you can hear the Audio (sound), then it could mean the YSUS PCB Assembly is gone/kaput/finish. Can replace the PCB, not repair the PCB due to timing circuitry involve. Cost maybe roughly $500 depending where you located. The PCB is located on the left hand side of your TV when you are facing the back (Back open). Might find 3-4 brown flex membrane connecting to the plasma panel. The PCB has a silver or black aluminum heatsink (big) on it.
Good Luck.
