check all inputs on tv ,also check if menu on tv is working ,make sure lines arent being produce by another source, cable box etcc..If menu and or OSD are affected .Then there is a good chance you have lightning damaged some where in signal section on tv .

If you can take the TV to a repair place, they can look it over for you and give you a price and tell you want the problem really is, cost is around 50 dallors to look it over, and then you can make up your mind if you want it fixed, a lot all times this is the chippest way out. if its not worth fixing your only out your time and only $50. The price to fix it could cost you what a new one runs.

SOURCE: I have a 42

Need a model and brand to be specific, but generically it could be a software issue, try to call the company that made your tv and ask if there is a software update. For specific solutions we need a specific model and serial.
