Horizontal lines on start up

Hi, when we first turn the tv on and for about the first half hour there are horizontal lines distorting the picture. it has been going on for about a year now and has gotten progressivly worse..more lines and longer duration. the set is about 6 years old and when it is fully "warmed" up has a great picture, expecially in high def. any ideas??

Re: horizontal lines on start up

I get the exact same issue, exepct now it never clears up. I have tried to find someone to come look at it but no one does "house calls" anymore and everyone I call makes it sound so easy to just toss this beast in a car and bring it in. One of the repair techs said the issue sounded like the board had been zapped by a lighting surge...but of course there was no way to be sure unless I brought the set in.

If your TV looks 3D, warped, or distorted it likely has a convergenge problem.
If however it just looks dull, washed out, redish, greenish, or blueish or if it looks like objects on the screen have halos the fluid in the lens has soured.
You can search google for parts or you can get the parts with repair instructions from sites such as
