Hello, my name is ***** ***** I'll assist you. I'm sorry you're having trouble with it. Line on LCD panel is an indication of taping bond failure, in other words the LCD panel (screen) is failing and you might get more lines in coming days, I'm really sorry about this news, replacement of entire LCD panel (screen) is only solution to resolve the problem but it would cost approx new TV price because replacement LCD panel is high cost part and adding the tech labor could exceed new TV price of same size. You would be better off with an new TV instead of spending money and time on this old TV, however, you may please use this TV with the line(s) that wont hurt any thing inside TV nor the screen. I trust my input will help you out.
