We have had our LCD for nearly 2 years, for quite a while we have had a smear down the right hand side of the screen, it is really bad when you watch sport or something where the screen is mainly 1 colour. Any suggestions ? It is like it when you watch normal tv, satellite or dvd's ?

When the TV is OFF, the power supply, main board are still running 24/7 since it has to be able to receive the signals from the remote or from the switches on the TV, so it is never really off at all.
You are lucky it last 2 years, some of them TV I work on are less than 2 years old.
This an be the main board or the T-CON board problem.
Having same problem. Smacking it or applying pressure often works. Extremely annoying (inconvenient) that a nearly $1000 machine breaks down very soon after one year ( how long the warranty is, of course)
If it's an LCD TV, then what your seeing is Liquid Crystals inside.
Chances are that someone has bumped the LCD or damaged it, and now the
screen is broken. The "Dark Lines" are from misfiring pixels which is a
sign that the LCD is damaged and will either stay the same, or get much
much worse. I'd lean towards much much worse.
Just keep it until it really gets bad then just replace it. You can have it fixed, but the repair would cost more then just buying a brand new one.
Had this same issue on right side of 52" about 1 inch from side but had 3 vertical lines that disappeared after 40 minutes. Have Samsung LNT5265FX/XXA and about 16 months old. LCD Panel itself had to be replaced to fix it, fortunately had extended service plan
It sound like to me that one of the boards that power the bad side of the screen is getting hot and quitting. The boards are not too expensive to replace but getting them is generally the big problem. ( At least for our company). The set would be worth tkaing to a local shop and have it looked at, but replacement costs are going down every day it seems.
I hope in some way this has helped
