    Is this a part that I could possibly change myself without special tools to save money?

    Also recently the picture lost all red and had it service at a local repair shop and they replaced the regulater and cleaned the board from condensor if that helps.

Call for service immediately. Usually this relates to a flaky power supply or picture drive module. Electronics usually either fail when they're very new or very old, so this isn't that surprising.

Could also be transport related, as these are big heavy boxes and the damage could come from being dropped.

    No. Highly nlikely unless you have the trubleshooting experience, tools, manuals AND parts. You mention "recently purchased" do you have any warranty left?

Vertical lines on screen kinda pixelated

Just check this link. You can see similar type of fault to LCD TVs. Compare them to that of your TVs and make sure. It sounds that the LVDS cable has loose contact with its connection sockets. Re-seat it once, and check. Pull up previous posts there, either by its left side bar, or view it in Timeslide option.

Just a line acrose tube has audio. looks like it is all there but in a compack line.

Hi david
To answer your question;
What you have is a vertical problem(no deflection vertically)
If not caused by bad solder joints on the vertical output i.c then the output itself maybe gone.
Try to knock on the side of the tv as it may come back temporary, indicating a bad connection.
Hope this will help good luck
