Anyshop would take this under coinsignment as a bad Horizontal IC
But do not shoot the messenger, its going to need a shop, I would not recommend you opening this unit and risk a fatel shock or Death. Just the flyback transformer alone could kill you. Not to sound harsh but please understand, I do not want fixya to be on the late night news that it gave someone a solution that could have caused injury or death, if your not experienced take it to a shop. You cost if it is a IC witch it sounds like to me your looking $75-$100 parts and labor.
Thanks for your intrest in fixya.com please do rate and leave feedback.

Testimonial: "honest info...doesn't get any better than that! Thanks!"
The grey lines you describe, sound like retrace lines. There will be a problem in either the screen voltage drive stages, or possibly power supply regulation causing this. If the set had a "horizontal IC" problem?? you would not get much on the screen at all as the horizontal(flyback) stages would not be operating. You need to be at least scanning to get the lines across the screen you mention. The set is shutting down to prevent any damage occurring. This repair will take a TV tech to solve for you, and as the replacement cost,and age of the set, at least 7-8 years... repairs could be considered uneconomic if costs were to exceed $150.
