Question about Philips 26PF9966 26 in. LCD Television
No you are incorrect, it MAY be an indication of a bad LCD panel if the problem exist in the LCD internally. Does the issue occur on a different computer? If so, read on. There are external vertical and horizontal IC driver's respectively driving a RGB grid, notice how the line colors do not stay the same in relation to the background? You should check the ribbon cable(s) corresponding to the location of the vertical lines whether on the left, middle, and/or right side that typically travel from the bottom of the LCD and terminating to the vertical IC driver on the PCB. This COULD be the issue because I have a Cintiq 18SX interactive pen display that exhibited a related problem. One way to know for certain is to push gently on the bezel below the lines, if you see the color change or lines go away, that is most certainly your problem. You may push on the ribbon cable connectors firmly after disassembly, if symptoms completely disappear you can try hot gluing or any other non-permanent means to fasten the connector down using firm clamping force and/or replace the ribbon cables. Hope this helps, please keep me updated if it does!

These vertical line are possible causes of LCD cables from the graphics card. There is no easy fix for this issue and normally requires servicing or part replacement. Try to contact your TV support people or consult you local technicians to diagnose it properly as it might be also the panel itself failing.
