My picture started to go bad around the edges. lines and real graine. Now it has started to turn its self off and then 10 sec. latter back on while we are watching it. When i turn it off it sounds like it powers down but the green light on the top comes back on.

Vertical lines are always the result of the LCD panel failing. You may be able to locate the issue by pressing around the edge of the screen at the location of the lines. The problem is usually caused by edge soldering connection failing. They can be repaired by using a heat gunn in some cases or forcing pressure on the edge with tape or shims.
There are connectors and circuitry that control the vertical and horizontal picture image generation that need to be at the edges of the screen. The border simply covers these connectors and circuitry so the user cannot see it. Newer models of flat panel TV's solve this problem better to get more picture real-estate to the user. Flat panel TV's are not like the original CRT (cathode-ray) TV's of the past that had borders to conceal a non-linear distortion that occurred at the edges.
Making a binding is going to be stronger and give a neater edge finish. I tried to do what you are suggesting with my first quilt, by stitching around the outside edge, then trimming the top fabric and batting back, then turning the bottom fabric up and over twice. But I really struggled with it and it went away in the UFO pile. When I returned to it I asked a fellow quilter and she sent me some images and said always make crosswise grain binding, usually 5 1/2" or 6 " wide. I would really suggest you make a binding, as it makes mitreing the corners so much easier than trying to turn over and get it square still. The binding edge also holds everything together so needs to be hard wearing and a bound crosswise grain double thickness binding does this best.

The edge ribbon connector may not be connecting (on the inside of the tv). Cure is foam strips between screen edge connecters and inside cover. Or, Memory chip (used to make the picture appear), may be bad. All flat panel tv's use a memory chip to make picture appear (it is digital after all). And if memory chips are bad, picture will have lines, jags etc. But it sounds like you have edge connecter problems. Place foam between inside cover and screen. TV may have been thrown around in shipment, and edge connecters came undone. They're very lightly soldered on some sets.
If the backlight is not turning on, you should be able to see the lcd image by shining a bright flashlight at the screen.
Backlight inverters are loud, so you can hear them operating (high pitched whine) and if the backlight is coming on, you can see white light leaking around the edge of the screen, and even a little inside the cabinet.
Philips are legendary for having power supplies that fail due to bad capacitors, so that could be the culprit as well.
You need to describe these lines better. Are they moving or stationary? Are they very fine lines with sharp edges or are they more like bands with soft edges? How many lines do you see, and how wide are they (compared to the screen width)?
Fine lines that are stationary: defect in the electronics causing a vertical row of pixels to be dead or stuck. Can only be fixed by replacing major parts.
Broad lines with soft edges that move: could be electrical "hum" interference. Make sure you are using a grounded (3-pin) power plug, and that the outlet is properly wired. (Take the TV to a another location and see if the problem goes away).
Make sure you don't have fluorescent light fixtures nearby--they can interfere with the picture if the bulbs or ballast is defective.
Could mean tecon board or display is bad which means replacing both in a sony if they are bad i recomend buying a new tv because it is not cost effective to replace these.
power transistors in the convergence circuits on this series TV go bad after several years, making the wavy lines around the edge of the screen and 'doubling' of the edges of the text in varied colors which do not converge. Professional repair is required unless you are brave enough to tackle the project yourself and follow some rather simple instructions, buy a few tools from Radio Shack, and save yourself about $500 bucks...which I did on my own 42" Panasonic rear projection set.
Have you tried to change the settings like to scenery or adjusted for lighting that could have an effect. The only time it's blurry for me is when I don't adjust for the picture I am taking. The camera itself focuses so maybe there hasn't been enough time for it to focus. Try those things and if it doesn't work I would take it in to a camera shop maybe it has internal problems.
Understanding how an image (copy) is made might help.
The drum goes thru a Basic process like this; charge,exposure,transfer,clean.
the paper only comes into play during the transfer stage. Since the drum has a static charge the paper gets attracted to the drum and needs to move at the same speed as the drum. After a small distance the paper has to be repelled from the drum with the print (sometimes called Detack), this can be accomplished by a Detack wire or a reverse of polarity applied to the paper.
If this doesnot happen paper stays on drum (jam).
So you need to see if the jam you remove has any ink on it, this would indicate a transfer issue maybe a detack problem.
If it is clean (never reaches the drum) then a paper feed problem is indicated.
Now you need to understand paper!
Some paper is long grain other is short grain. This is what gives the stack of paper a curl as you hold it by the edges (most paper has an arrow on the wrap telling which way to run paper (it means curl up / curl down basically). The problem with grain is usually when some cuts down 11 x 17 paper to save money to give you 8 1/2 x 11.
How do you tell grain fold paper in half long edge to long edge run your fingers down the edge if it is smooth you have long grain. Most copiers feed the long edge therefore long grain is what you need . If when you fold in half the edge is rough, then fold another top to bottom if seem is smooth you have short grain, This works better on top edge feeding copiers / printers, these are unusual since most they are slowest (mostly diazo printer).
Since you seem to have problems early make sure you remove paper every night and store flat, note the curl direction beacuse if when you put it in in the morning it might change curl (teacup).
Some times old machine use rubber rollers to start initial fee, these you could try to clean with some finger nail polish remover. This will eventually dry out the rubber but if it helps then maybe you only need to replace the rollers.
