Have you taken another set an hooked up the cable or sat. to the other tv from this tv? Try that first thing. Next try the video input like with a dvd or vcr. No lines ?? Then sounds like the tuner could be going bad in this set. if you still have lines then its a problem in the video or horizontal section in the tv set. There are no user serviceable parts inside this set so its anot advised to gointo this set to try to fix it. You can get a serious shock or cause more problems with the set. I know you said it is about 5 or so years old. Its at the point of do you wanna invest in this set?? If you really like the way it works then a tuner shouldnt (if thats the problem) run more then 2 to 3 hundred bucks with the labor. Good Luck

Horizonal line across middle of screen top half of picture perfect bottom half has small lines in picture hitachi hd S 69 plasma

I'm not sure if this model is the one that has resistors that go bad. You can actually purchase a pack of resistors in a kit. It will come with solder, the resistors and instructions. You can lay the tv out and take the circuit board out to find the blown components, and replace the bad ones. Takes about an hour start to finish and will cost around $65.00. It has been a few years since I did this, so I'm not sure on the price.

This is a sign of your LCD panel beginning to die. Sometime soon those lines won't fade away and will become permanent parts of your TV screen.

Considering the fact that your TV is approx 3-4 years old, this is normally the expected lifespan of a TV. Once the TV becomes unwatchable, your best bet would be to begin shopping for a new one.

Top half of my RCA TV is black with thin lines, and no picture and TV is only 3 years old! Ony the bottom half has any picture. It did this about four months ago and lasted for about two weeks, but then...

This is usually caused by bad solder connections to a part called the vertical output integrated circuit. A TV service shop (if there are any in your area) could go over the connections, probably for their minimum labor charge. (I've been out of shop service for a long time now, so I have no clue what a typical labor charge might be. Sorry!) If other parts turn out to need replacement, which sometimes happens, they could give you an estimate for the repair.

No picture

Just increase the screen voltage slightly by turning the screen control on the LOT and if a horizontal line appears, check the vertical IC supply, and if everything is okay, change the vertical IC, it is not costly.
