It can be either the LCD panel driver board, or the worst case is bad LCD panel.

I have a sharp 32sh12u that has a problem where sometimes i would be watching something the image stand stills then fades to sync with current frame then eventually show vertical lines. The picture will...

I don't yet have a solution for this problem, As I to have the Sharp model LC 32SH12U 32 inch LCD Tv. From what I have seen and read in searching for a relatively cheaper fix than just tossing out this $600.00 Tv,I have heard T-CON Board MANY MANY times now up until today I had a guy tell me that he was pretty certain that it is the SCREEN PANEL!!! I wouldn't think that if the screen was bad it's self it would show ANY colors or tints, Lines or what have you..I just think the T-CON Board is gone bad in this Tv As it has perfect sound, And like most everyone elses for a while after my TV warmed up it would play like a champ and had a BEAUTIFUL PICTURE until now I think the T-CON Board has gone completely out on it. Sharp must have undoubtably purchased ton's of BAD T-CON Boards that fit not only this TV but also the AOC,DYNEX,INSIGNIA,And Vizio Brand's of LCD TV's...The VERY Same T-CON board which is Part Number X3562TP ,Is futted in every one of these same brands of TV's And I feel they have gone bad in Thousands of LCD TV's and it has Obviously caused thousands of people some very bad issues with their entertainment wife and I are TV Folk and that is what we do...WE watch TV,,And now that our Main TV is broken and we can't really afford to just go out and Buy a new one I have to try and repair this one,And as Cheaply as I can, So I may be about to waste $40.00 on a T-CON Board, But hey I gotta KNOW..If this don't fix it, Im just gonna part the TV out on EBAY and go for another brand of TV..I thought SHARP was a really good brand of TV, But from what I have learned..our money would have been better spent on a different brand of TV!!! If this DOES repair our Tv I will be certain to come back and let everyone know!!

I don't have a solution, but the same thing happened to ours. To sidestep the problem, I just left it on 24/7. Eventually (three days ago) it just stopped working completely.

Vertical lines

Solid color vertical lines, that is the sign of failed LCD panel TFT dirvers circuits, which means it will need new LCD panel, but first check the connection between the panel and the T-CON board first.
See my album to see what T-CON board looks like.
