OK, does the blue vertical line appear on same place every time turn On TV power?

Also, does it go away after some time?

it appears in the same location every time. Usually it stays on once it comes on. Very occasionally it will briefly disappear, then come back minutes later
TV Technician: Shahid, Technician replied 2 months ago

OK, unfortunately it looks display panel/ the screen internal failure that is causing vertical line, this kind of problem occurs due to loose connection of bond that connects the ribbon cable to LCD panel, due to builtin backlight display panel gets some heat inside that caused the bond to be loose and line appears. Entire display panel/ the screen will be replaced to fix the problem, I'm sorry for this news.

I trust my input will help you out to make decision about this TV repair or invest that money on new replacement TV as new 32" TV would be available around $110 or so.
If you have any additional questions, feel free to ask. If you're satisfied, please rate me a 5-star at the top of your page so I can get credit of my work on website.

Thank you for your feedback. Am I still charged the $35?
TV Technician: Shahid, Technician replied 2 months ago

I wish if I could do more from here to fix the problem or put my hands on TV to check the ribbon cable.

If you think I did nothing then you wont be charged, simply mention it here and Ill opt out to forward it to customer service for their process.
