Re: picture problem

Have you taken another set an hooked up the cable or sat. to the other tv from this tv? Try that first thing. Next try the video input like with a dvd or vcr. No lines ?? Then sounds like the tuner could be going bad in this set. if you still have lines then its a problem in the video or horizontal section in the tv set. There are no user serviceable parts inside this set so its anot advised to gointo this set to try to fix it. You can get a serious shock or cause more problems with the set. I know you said it is about 5 or so years old. Its at the point of do you wanna invest in this set?? If you really like the way it works then a tuner shouldnt (if thats the problem) run more then 2 to 3 hundred bucks with the labor. Good Luck

You likely have a bad hyper board.  As time goes on the lenght of time it takes to get a clear picture will increase and eventually the picture will never clear up untill the part is either repaired or replaced.
