I don't know what does your mean by "line up and down my screen", if the line goes up from the bottom to reach the top of screen then goes back down to the bottom cycles, that symptom I have never seen. But if the line goes off and on, very high probability is the panel defective (see the picture, the ICs inside the panel loose, shall cause the Vertical or horizontal dead pixel lines). It is the most serious issue on the flat panel TV. Because the manufactory sells the panels, price even excess the TV.
If you need more accurate diagnose, you can post a picture.

Permanent Vertical Line on my Sony Bravia 46 inch LCD TV


What you're describing is usually the result of an improperly seated connector. With the power disconnected, open the tv and locate any connectors between the LCD screen and the driver circuit board. Unplug them, and reconnect it assuring it's properly and firmly seated. Be careful when handling these cables as they tend to be quite fragile... take your time.

Line thru screen


The LCD Panel must be replaced to fix both problems. The cost in doing this would exceed the value of the set. I recommend not putting the money into it.

MY TV WONT STAY ON WIDE MODE. wHEN THE ADVERTS COME ON IT CHANGES BACK TO HALF SIZE. I HAVE A NEW SONY BRAVIA


This is actually due to the signal format being sent down from the transmitters/broadcaster. They by defauly output 4:3 which your tuner in your TV interprets and rejigs it into 16:9. Te adverts as they come on are seen by the tuner in your tv as a change in aspect ratio, and therefore your TV is trying to best display these. However, if you go to your screen settings, you can change the screen auto format to your choice and this chould ensure that the picture always gets set to your choice. If set on default, it will vary between 'wide' and 'smart'.
