Don't replace anything, Vizio has issued a lifetime warranty for this set because of this problem. No joke, call the customer service line and tell them you got the pop of death. They'll send someone out to 'repair' the set free of charge. If they can't fix it they'll give you a new one. Even if your mfg purchase warranty has expired. Call them and post the results. I've been fixing TV's longer than I care to admit and this is the first time I've actually seen a company stand behind their products like this. I bought a broken tv with the intent of fixing it and after replacing almost every board I could only manage to get the vertical racing stripe line, except mine was purple. I put it all back together and called to find out if there was a recall on this set and within 5 minutes the (Actual English speaking) gentleman told me to sit tight and he'd have a repairman come and do his thing. He did, and long story short, he couldn't fix it. Last week they delivered a new TV to replace this one. I was shocked. I think Vizio will have all my future business.

I have the same problem as you. You just didn't mention which was the culprit. I assume it was the mainboard, correct???

Usually if the LVDS cable between the main board and the T-CON board is bad, you will loose one of the three color signals, you may have thermal problem with the T-CON board. I would run the TV with the back open to see if it will take longer for the problem to appear, or get a can of freeze spray for electronic troubleshooting and cool down the T-CON board (board is under the metal shield that you will have to remove to get to all the cables, I would remove the shield and put the screws back in to keep the T-CON board in place).
The TV as shown in my album has bad T-CON board, the pictures get pixelated and scrambled after about 1/2 hour, I was using a small fan to keep it cool until I finally found a replacement T-CON board. Bad LVDS driver IC on the main board can also be the problem. Right now we need to find out if it is heat related problem or not.

Does the menu function display the same lines? What kind of cables are using ? (HDMI, Component vid, S-video, co-ax)
Were you as tenacious checking all cables/connections as you were the electronics? Lets rule out this all too often over-looked possibility.
Do you still get the lines with nothing connected to the TV? (no source connected)

Testimonial: "The lines are present with nothing connected I am not able to see the menu screen. I turn it on and all the lines are there no image."
