You'll need to pull out the warranty paperwork and see what it says about repairs. You'll likely need to present the proof of purchase for the warranty along with the machine, for Best Buy to start the process. To be certain you're doing it right, consult the warranty to see what to do. You can void your extended warranty if you take the machine to someone not certified to work on the machine.

Depends which country you're in, but in the UK the value of any 19" cathode ray tube tv (the old bulky ones) is effectively zero as it's difficult to even give them away now. As they're classed as hazardous waste they actually cost money to throw away.
For insurance purposes, buying a good used one including shipping is about £70 and that's also what many used tv shops may charge for a refurbished, guaranteed, ex-rental model with delivery included.
If you have a new for old policy then the value is effectively the cost of the cheapest Philips (or brand equivalent) 19" LCD tv including delivery and installation costs.
The problem is definitely NOT the tube. Sounds like adry solder joint on the pcb. Only way to find it is to inspect the pcb and resolder. Joints that usually go are where the heavy transformer are seated. Get it sorted else it may arc as it gets worse and burn or..the arcing may blow a component on the board.
I had a similar problem with my Phillips 42 in. LCD HD TV.
Here's the problem. The Power Supply Board. I opened my TV
up(warranty was up of course) and found several bad capacitors.
Phillips and several other companies were sold capacitors that although
were highly rated failed within 5 years because of a lack of
preservatives. All sorts of electronic equipment is now being effected
due to these defective capacitors.
1. Take it in and have it fixed
2. Open it up, check the board for faulty capacitors(bulged or leaking) Buy a new Power supply board and install it.
3. Remove PSB, remove faulty capacitors and replace with compatible new ones.
I am sorry to hear that you are having trouble with your television.If you have enough information about the purchase, we may be able to locate the receipt for you.Simply visit your local store or call 1-888-BEST BUY™ (1-888-237-8289) for assistance.
If the horizontal lines going through the picture are fine white lines, then I would suspect the picture tube as having a heater to cathode short or some other problem. Since some sets have had a 3 year warranty on the picture tube, you may be lucky unless the labor to replace the tube is more than the set is worth. Sanyo is usually not a good name in consumer electronics anymore, so if you're looking for a replacement I would look elsewhere.
A set that has only a 1/2 inch bright line through the middle of the picture, from left to right, has a vertical output IC that is not working correctly. If the 1/2 inch line is in the middle but going up and down, then the horizontal yoke circuit has stopped working. These are problems which should be looked at by a qualified tech, but if the set was purchased 6 months ago then it should still be under the manufacturer's warranty.
