Question about Samsung Televison & Video
Model LE40A656AIF is a 2008 model LCD TV that was discontinued by Samsung. Since Samsung quit making LCD TVs in 2011, I believe that yours is starting to fail. Since repairs on a discontinued item can cost nearly as much as it originally cost, I would suggest getting a new TV.

it would be easier to find it stripped from a damaged set on ebay.
I see several there but need the part number to search
of course you may purchase that and find it to be the lcd driver.hopefully not.

If the lines are there all the time or intermittent but in the same location it is an indication of a bad panel. The panel driver can also be the cause of this symptom. Samsung panels have had issues with the connector that carries the LVDS signals to the panel itself, this is not serious and can be resolved and little cost. Joe Weibel

The problem is that the panel has failed. Apparently this is a common problem with LCD TV's between 18 mths and 3 yrs old. If it survives over 3 yrs it is likely to last for a few years longer. The cost of replacing the panel is more than a replacement TV!
