Question about Emerson LC320EM8 32 in. LCD TV
If lines are shadows, then problem is the backlight system, which is included with the LCD panel.
If lines are well defined, then problem is either LCD panel or main digital board. T-Con board must also be tested before replacing the main board.
Here all parts for this model.
Here service manual at $2.99

I'm afraid this doesn't sound good.The other expert is correct in the diagnosis.
I'm guessing these lines are there regardless of which input you select or what screen format you select, correct?
And these lines never move from one part of the screen to another, they are always in the exact same position, correct?
And if you press the TV's MENU button (not a cable or satellite box menu), the lines interfere with the menu, correct?
I wish I had better news for you, but if those lines show up in exactly the same place every time on all inputs and formats, the problem is the actual panel (the screen) itself.
Unless this is under warranty, this is going to be a major expense to fix, and is precisely why I urge anyone who buys a current technology HDTV to get an extended warranty. All of these TV's, regardless of whether it's plasma, LCD, or rear projection, have large and expensive assemblies that cannot be fixed, and must be replaced.
Definitely get an estimate from a tech, but be prepared for a real shocker.
Let me know,if needed further assistance.
Hope i helped you.
Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

Assuming it doesn't matter what input your on and the lines are always there. This is a sign of a problem with the LCD panel itself which is the most expensive part of the television. Given the age and brand of the tv your best bet will be to sell it for parts on ebay /craigslist to recoup some of your costs and replace it with a more dependable model from a more reputable manufacturer. Anytime you are making a new electronics purchase make sure to research them all very thoroughly on the internet. Most times you can avoid lemons or problem prone models by researching before buying. if you need further assistance please let me know. If you find this information helpful please take a moment to accept/rate it accordingly.
