I inherited this TV from a neighbor for free who was moving overseas and could not take the TV with him. The problem with the TV is that it has a lot of small verticle lines and one think line, probably 1" wide. The smaller lines start to go away after the TV has been on a while but the thick one does not. Just trying to figure out what the problem is, and how much it will cost to fix it or if I should just sell it.

You have a defective LCD panel. The only way to fix it is to replace the whole LCD panel. It is the most expensive part in the TV (usually $500-2500) depending the make, model, and size. It is also time consuming as you need to take the whole TV apart in order to replace that part.
You need to describe these lines better. Are they moving or stationary? Are they very fine lines with sharp edges or are they more like bands with soft edges? How many lines do you see, and how wide are they (compared to the screen width)?
Fine lines that are stationary: defect in the electronics causing a vertical row of pixels to be dead or stuck. Can only be fixed by replacing major parts.
Broad lines with soft edges that move: could be electrical "hum" interference. Make sure you are using a grounded (3-pin) power plug, and that the outlet is properly wired. (Take the TV to a another location and see if the problem goes away).
Make sure you don't have fluorescent light fixtures nearby--they can interfere with the picture if the bulbs or ballast is defective.
Could mean tecon board or display is bad which means replacing both in a sony if they are bad i recomend buying a new tv because it is not cost effective to replace these.

I have run into the same problem and it may be related to the WAAS (Wide Area Augmentation System) feature. Try disabling this feature (under MAIN MENU / Setup). I used this receiver overseas (Asia and Europe) last year for 35 days straight with no problems. During this time WAAS was disabled as none of these satellites are visible overseas. The problem occurred intermittently prior to the overseas trip, and has reoccurred after returning. I was running into the same problem this past weekend and noticed the screen blanking out (with the vertical line) shortly after differential corrections were applied to the GPS signals. I disabled the WAAS and let the receiver run for over an hour. The problem did not return. Hope this helps.
