Model: Philips 32PT5441/37
In the past few weeks horizontal lines from the top of the picture are moving down mixing with the existing picture. Over time more and more lines from above are moving down, much like if you were slowly peeling down wallpaper from the top.
It's about 2 years old, but it has been used a lot.
I have tried different video inputs and they're all the same.
I haven't changed anything in the physical setup recently.
I'm very much expecting to have to buy a new TV, but wanted to see if perhaps there was a simple solution somehow or if it's worth it getting it repaired.
Thank you for your time!

Re: Horizontal lines slowly moving down
Sounds like you have a power supply filtering problem. Perhaps a filter capacitor is going bad. If your set has a switching power supply
oscillations from it are getting into the video.
You need to have a tech to check it out for you. You should get an estimate first before having it repaired.

now only visible in a thin horizontal line.
first of all you reduce brightness to monimum.
it just to protect your tv from crt demage.
your problem is in horizontal output section as you have mentioned that week or so ago the right and left bottom edges of the picture began to move in like a sideways triangle filled with black so this sympton is due to hor. section problem.
your flyback transformer or horizontal output might be defective.
but remember check for power supply is ok from
