Hi, maybe this will help:
1.  Are you watching US/imported DVDs?  If you are, you need to go to your DVD player's setup / system menu and (if the option is available) set Video Output to MULTI or AUTO instead of PAL.  This will stop nasty, cheap PAL converting going on.
2.  I know it sounds simple, but a lot of people don't check this: check that all of the connections on the back of the TV and equipment are pushed in fully (and, if possible, try different SCART leads).
3.  Is all your equipment plugged into one of those surge protected extension leads? It should be, to minimise interferance.
4.  Keep energy saving lightbulbs, wi-fi products, mobiles, computers and laptops away from the equipment as they can interefere.
Hope that helps!

Horizontal lines pop in sound on certain channels


Check all of your ground screws on the boards that you replaced. Sounds like that once the set is getting hot, the board is expanding and shorting out on the screws.

White wavey lines with dots or speckles.


The "white line" at the top of the screen is usually associated with "VBI Information" - the stuff that carries closed captioning, etc. This is usually only visible on upconverted SD material on HD channels and is usually the fault of the affiliate not doing the upconversion properly.

Yes, yes, yes. Change all bulgy, puffy capacitors by exactly the same value and voltage. Look for any excessive voltages in these areas where you find such capacitors. But replace capacitors only one by one. Never remove all of them together, as you are likely to misplace the capacitors, creating more problems. Also look for any loose contacts and dry solders.

Rogers cable is using what they call "switch digital" this allows more channels to be placed on the platform they are using to give you more stations. This basically means people on the same line that you are, are not watching this station so they put that station "off" until someone tunes into it.

White flickering line across top of screen


Set the screen format using your TV's menu. Do not set the format of the screen using your provider's receiver. I had this prob with a few channels with a dish provider when I set the format with the remote from the dish provider. I picked up the TV's remote, went into the menu, set the format, problem fixed.

it you have a repair skills you need to open the TV and make sure all the ribon connectors around the circuit boards are proper connected

Poor picture quality on certain channels only


You could try moving it to the other room to see if the connection is bad. Better than taking to the store just yet. If the picture is still bad at both connections I would just bite the bullet and take it back and exchange it while its free.
Hope this helps and let me know if you need more ideas.
