Approximately how old is your TV?
Is the on-screen menu also affected by the black line?
How thick is the black line?
Do you intend to carry out internal repairs on the TV yourself, or are you looking for an approximate cost for repairs?

Ok Pete it is just a thin black line

Secure remote assistance will not be beneficial in this case, so you can ignore any automated offers you get from the website regarding it.
Could you please let me know:
1. Approximately how old is your TV?
2. Is the on-screen menu also affected by the black line?
3. Do you intend to carry out internal repairs on the TV yourself, or are you looking for an approximate cost for repairs?

A horizontal line on your display panel is usually an indication of a "bad panel" which isn't economically repairable.
Sometimes it can be caused by a loose display cable inside the TV.
You will need to remove the rear cover off the TV and check the display cables that transfer the video signal from the logic processor to the display screen.
Remove each end of the cable connection and firmly reattach it again.
Let me know if that helps?
