There are two sets of wires internal to the LCD. one of the wires has come loose. Complete dissassembly and reassembly should solve the problem. (use electrical contact cleaner on the gold tabs that insert to the LCD)

(take it back if under warranty, and haggle to get it replaced even if it isn't first. Following the above procedure is an easy way to break the light tubes if you're not super careful.)...

Can lines on the sides of screen be removed on a sharp aquas tv ?

If the lines are one pixel wide, that's probably bad contacts in the screen panel and I doubt it can be repaired. If you're referring to the width of the screen, there's probably a setting to change the aspect ratio or zoom that would get rid of the unused areas. This might cause some of the image to run off the top/bottom or sides of the screen. That's because the TV needs to allow for both narrow and wide inputs from different channels.
