Question about Televison & Video
These stripes appear there because those rows of pixels are either damaged or not properly commanded.
If you're lucky the connections to the wires in the screen that control those rows got unseated = reseat them properly and your problem will be gone. Cost of fixing - 0.
If you're unlucky the image processor is faulty = you will have to replace the entire motherboard. This will be expensive, depending on your exact model of tv, around $200. Replacing it it's a job for a pro.
If you're truly unlucky it's the connection inside the screen panel that are defective and that can't be repaired. Buying a new screen will be more expensive than buying a new tv. Time for a new one.
The only way to find which is to test the tv using an oscilloscope - this is definitely a job for a pro.
