Lines may be caused by AC pickup. if so, usually the lines move slowly up the screen, and two major sets are usually displayed. wavy lines may also be caused by a local TV station transmitting on the same output channel, either 3 or 4. If you can change the output channel, this may help. Also, try disconnecting all cable or satellite signals and see if the problem goes away. May be an adjacent channel bleeding over. If the lines go away when putting the dvd on pause, the problem is probably in the dvd power supply. Cool the unit down by unplugging it for a while and then try it. If the problem goes away then, separate the dvd player from other devices to prevent overheating

Wavy lines

Are the wavy lines horizontal or vertical? If they are horizontal and up near the top of the screen it could be 60HZ interference from a power cord running over the cable from the DVD player to the TV. There could also an internal breakdown of the shielding by the power supply of the DVD player. If the lines are vertical it is likely the cable or maybe the input jack on the TV. Could be a number of things.
