Default Plasma suddenly has vertical green stripe?

Just tonight while watching a hockey game my 6 month old Samsung PN50C550 plasma suddenly had a pixel wide vertical green line running down the left hand side about 3 inches from the edge of the screen. The line looks "speckled" and varies in intensity depending on the colors on screen. The bottom half would sometimes look red when on a white background, while the top remained primarily green. This is happening even when I change inputs to the Blueray player, change HDMI ports, even when I remove all input sources and the power is on.

I've searched the forum and it looks like this means something within the TV electronics is faulty which is a doomsday scenario for me since it was a gift and I have no Bill of sale to uphold the warranty.

Just thought I would ask on here and make sure there wasn't something I should be trying

I would suggest that you have the original purchaser provide you with a sales receipt or have them call and arrange for the necessary service call/repair...
