Its a failing LCD driver, not a lot you can do about it unfortunately, eventually it will get worse. Usually lines or dots are a bad driver board, but sometimes its also a bad flex cable on the LCD. Being 2 years old you probably don't have warranty, but if you do have extended warranty file a claim now, its only going to get worse, and there is no quick or easy fix.

I had the same issue... here's what I did.  If power off your cable box, then press the menu button, there's a selection to enable or disable Closed Captioning.  This works for both HD series Motorola boxes Comcast offers, at least in the Minneapolis/St. Paul area.  Hope this helps!

You have to activate the closed caption option on your charter cable box. Power off your cable box and immediately push the menu button. A menu should appear where you can toggle captioning on/off. Good luck!

if the comcast box is not hd then the control is with your tv/remote.
If the comcast box is hd, then you can control it from the comcast remote. To do this press cable, then power and in 2 seconds press menu to get to the hidden hd setup menu, scroll down to closed captions and set it to enabled or disabled then press power twice to get back to you rtv

The most common reason for a TV to display a blue screen with no picture is because the source device has not been set to the proper mode.
If you are using a cable or satellite set-top box, ensure that it is turned on and set to an active station. If the set-top box is connected to the television using a coaxial cable, then the television should be set to Channel 3 or 4 to receive the signal.
If you are using a VCR that is turned on, but not playing a tape and not tuned to a receivable channel, then a blue screen will be displayed on the TV. To resolve this, turn off the VCR or tune it to a receivable channel. If a cable or satellite set-top box is connected to the VCR using a coaxial cable, then the VCR should normally be set to Channel 3 or 4 to receive the signal.

  1. Using the remote control, press the following button sequence in a timely fashion: 1 , 2, 3, 4 (This will release the "Retail Lock" mode)
  2. Enter the User Menu and locate Reset Factory Defaults for the subject model.
  3. Complete the Factory Defaults reset.
  4. Power on the TV.
You can reset and eliminate the lock on some televisions without the remote, using a few tactics. Hold the power button for five seconds. The television will automatically restart. If the lock is still on, unplug the television and remove the battery from the back panel of the television.

Fault with the main power supply regulator board. Check and replace damaged component/s at its main power regulator [SMPS] section circuit. Contact any service technician. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Surf the site with patience. Pull up older posts.

It will be best to replace the power supply regulator board as card basis rather than making "Surgery" to it; which usually will make loss for both money and time. Even though you can make it right, it will cost around an amount equal to the cost of a new board; including the cost of (spare parts + service charge) More to say, most of the spare parts to it will be difficult to get from open electronic spare part market. This is true to most of the flat panel TV power supply boards; irrespective of its brand and screen size.

Best Advice!

Here is a question that we see often.
Question:
I've replaced everything in my television because it previously had a black screen with no lighting. Now it doesn't turn on at all and all I have is audio. What could be the cause ?
So your television stops working properly and you think it must be easy to fix, because you can buy boards on eBay, and you can watch YouTube videos. So you make a decision, you buy a board and you fit it, but the television still doesn't work! This is a classic case of the 'let's try replacing this' method of television repair and illustrates why it is a bad idea. It doesn't work for a number of reasons. To correctly diagnose issues, you need to know every board, what is does and every component on the board. You need to know which part has failed, replace the component, or replace the board. The parts you purchased off eBay were probably out of scrapped sets and not tested. The part your put in was dead when you put it in, so you just moved on to another guess at what might be the cause and replace a board that is fine. And so it goes on, you change all the boards and it still doesn't work. Did you notice the large print that says 'No Refunds, NO Returns'. This is to stop you sending your old one back and saying it didn't work, but the unscrupulous use it as an excuse to get money for selling items that may not work! The course to be a television engineer is 2 years full time education, take it to someone that knows how to diagnose and fix. It is by far the cheapest option. The part that failed might be a 20 cents fuse diode hard soldered to a board. They will charge you $2 parts and an hours labour.
