Clearly shows problem in deflection area both horizontal and vertical section. Horizontal lines is due to vertical section problem and making bbzzzz is due to horizontal output transistor short and sometimes LOT SHORT.

I have a Mitsubishi VS-5077 the screen has gone black, it started out with the darker colors going green, I was having to boost the britenees, than a line would flash vert. across the screen, now no...

You definitely have bad solder grounds. I have repaired a few of these. You will need a TV tech pull the boards out and resolder them. The worst board would be the one on the left [signal board, has rca jacks. rf connector]. And they may as well solder the second board. You will have a restored TV when completed. Thanks for asking and show a few hands of support!

sounds like a vertical problem, usually you'll see one white line across the screen, but one I worked on would come on and the bottom half of the picture was gone and there were lines across the top of the screen.

If you know how to solder & can find the vertical output chip then you could try resoldering the pins. If this doesn't fix it then it needs new parts.

Thin red line, green line and yellow line going across the screen

the problem is vertical collapse,i am not so sure you can trouble shoot this on your own but you can send the board to eithor pts electronics or tristate module for repair
to get a price get the number off the sticker--left hand board(looking from the back) it will start CTC195---- write down entire number before you call them

Come on then line horizal across screen then turs off

Horizontal line (up and down) is know as horizontal collapse. This is usually located around highvoltage section of the circuit. Because this circuit depends on certian frequencies and voltage protection circuitry will shut the set down. This will need a trained tv technician to fix this and can be expensive depending on the parts needed.
