I have a 42HP84 plasma TV about 7 years old. Last week I started having a black line about 1.5" wide by 14" ling coming down from the top of the screen. Toshiba support suggested I reboot the TV. Didn't help. Any ideas other than buying a new TV.

I have the same problem. It started about 1 month ago and I bought my TV about 8 years ago. It seems to come and go, but when it comes on, it stays for a while.
Did you ever get an answer to your question?

I have the same TV 42HP84. Per the Model sticker it was manufactured in July 2005. My TV developed a vertical black line a couple of years ago. I found nothing on Toshiba's web site or by phone contact that was any help. I did search "black line on plasma TV" through Google. I found several youtube videos that showed how to repair this problem themselves. I followed one of the videos and I was able to repair by TV myself. It took me approximately 3 hours with a drill with several bits and a soldering iron. Put the TV back together and it has worked fine up to just before Thanksgiving. I guess I will try a another repair effort before I trot out to buy a new TV.
