A thin black line, which I'm assuming is running vertically from top to bottom, is usually indicative of a bad LCD panel.

thanks for the comment MOtvGuy.......yes the the line runs vertical,can this be fixed??? or is it not fixable?????..............i was told it could be where the pixels are gone on that line and it may fix itself by turning the tv on and offa few times,but i dont know about that.....could a new mains board be the solution,any more helpful comments would be brilliant THANKS

That's a bad LCD panel. Fixable? Yes.  Cost efficient? No.
