Horizontal lines are either caused by the main logic board, a dammaged screen or by the main x and y drivers. Hard to determine which one it is, but somthing is getting hot which is causing the problem. My guess is the main logic board.

Try changing the input device to something you are sure works. If problem persists, it can be due to dry/leaky capacitors and/or dry solder on PCB. Anyhow, this might then require attention by a qualified service technician.

This sounds like a loose solder joint, or overheated component. I know this may sound like a **** question, but have you tried tapping the TV to see if it goes away? If it does, you will need a tech to re solder the loose component. I have also seen this type of line and color bleed problem, believe it or not from poor cabling or loose connections.

Vertical colour lines on whole screen


The problem is that the panel has failed. Apparently this is a common problem with LCD TV's between 18 mths and 3 yrs old. If it survives over 3 yrs it is likely to last for a few years longer. The cost of replacing the panel is more than a replacement TV!

Blue Vertical Line- Akai PDP4298ED


I have an Akai PDP4273M that developed the same problem. Checking around some of the av forums, I found a couple of threads that indicated it could be dust or bad contact around the ribbon cable connections on the video control board. I removed the back, loosened the ribbon cables on the board and used my small compressor with an air gun to blow out the dust all around the board and the ribbon connectors. Reconnected everything, turned on tv and stripe did not come back. Problem fixed! Nice and cheap solution.
