My PN50C6400 has developed an intermitant problem where a blue bar is shown on the screen running top to bottom. The bar always appears in the same spot on the screen. For the most part, power cycling the set "fixes" the problem, but it returns several minutes later.

Any insight to the cause of this issue would be greatly apreaciated. I love the set, and would gladly get it repaied if it is cost affective

In general, people that have seen similar issues (ie. vertical bars) with plasma sets have had to get the set replaced... :-(.... mostly because of repair costs quoted. BUT some have had luck removing the back and "reseating" all connectors. You might get lucky if the set is no longer under warranty.

Just to update.

Problem was Diagnosed as a bad buffer / address IC. Of course it's built into the panel so it's not repairable.
