When turning it on, there are multiple vertical lines. After it warms up a few minutes, they slowly start dissappearing, and the screen becomes visable. What is it, and can it be ajusted?

It's not adjustable. An electrolytic capacitor went bad.
You have to use coldspray to find the fault.
When the set is warmed up you spray on electrolytic capacitor's ( one at a time ) until the fault is vissable again. When found you repeat this again until you are sure you have the correct capacitor.
Replace the bad capacitor and the set wil work fine again.

Vertical lines


Was this problem why you changed the panel in the first place?
check your connectors and perhaps you have a bad Tcon.

Mag innovision LT716s monitor


When I turn on my computer the monitor takes a long time to warm up and colors change and vertical lines flash across the screen from right to left before the screen becomes normal again. Now the power light even goes out upon turning on my computer and I have to unplug the video cord and plug it back in to start the screen back up which even takes longer.
