Customer Question
I have a panasonic...

I have a panasonic plasma tv with a faint line 1 inn wide in the center verticle

Technician's Assistant: What Panasonic model do you have? How old is it?

When i hit the top of the tv the line goes away for a while the tv is a 42 i8nch and probably 10 years old

Technician's Assistant: Does the TV menu work? Do you have the same problem on all sources/inputs?

I think so it is connected to cox caBLE

Technician's Assistant: How long has this been an issue with your Panasonic? What happened right before this?

IT JUST STARTED. i looked on line and they said there is a verticle connection so maybe it just becomes a back connection until i hit it

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the TV Expert to know before I connect you?

Should i take it apart and spray some contact cleaner on the area?
