PLEASE HELP THIS IS VERY ANNOYING...... !!!!!!!!!
While not familiar with this model, the effect rings a bell; it may be caused by stray static discharge.
Try this potential solution;
Use a very mild solution of dish detergent to wet a clean cloth. Ring out the cloth until it is only damp.
With the TV power off, wipe down the screen and surrounding bezel.
If the cloth is only slightly damp with the solution, you shouldn't see any smears after the solution is completely dry.
Do not follow up with an untreated cloth.
If this seems to reduce the incidence of wild switching, you might want to check with stores that sell computers or Radio Shack and procure a better antistatic agent than the detergent; note however, if the antistatic spray is intended for only cloth or hard surfaces as well.

Make sure your closed-captioning is turned off. This box appears when you have captioning set for "text" mode and the set is on a channel where captions are being broadcast. The TV blanks the part of the screen where the text would go, but there isn't any to display. Some TV's have a single button on the remote to turn captioning on, and it's easy to set the TV for captioning without knowing it.
Invest in a long poking stick....... Either the Infrared receiver or controller it blew out. The high amount of static electricity formed and must of jumped off by the infrared receiver causing a momentary short in the circuit board. Safety's shut the tv down before frying, but damage looks to be done. It can be fixed, but only cheap if only the infrared receiver was damaged, anything else and it's going to be pricey.
The high voltage display power is down. First step is to measure
the B+ voltage with a voltmeter to see if you have power to this
section. It should be about 140 volts so don't touch it.
Having this kind of failure after 3 years is unusual. Was there
any kind of power surge etc that may have coincided with it?
Open up the back of the set but be very carefull. Notice a large black block with a large red wire that runs up to the picture tube. on one side of that large block where the thick red wire is comming out of are two controls, one should be marked focus or F and one should be marked screen or S. With the set operating normally and not touching anything else, slowly turn the control marked screen or S clockwish till the picture gets bright enough. If you go too bright the set will shut down or you see small thin white lines so back down on the control. then touch up the focus and your good to go. good Luck.
yeppers its a g2 control on the flyback thats gone or drifted out of alighnment or the flyback its self.Try turning the g2 control dowm till those lines fade. If they wont go away then you need someone to check the Picture tube or its componets driving the crt.
