I have a Panosonic projection 47" HDTV. One day while watching the TV the picture went out and now all I have is a red, blue and green horizontal picture about 2 inches wide on the screen. I still have sound and can change channels. The television is only 2 years old. I cleaned the lenses and it did not help. Does anyone have a solution to what the problem may be?

Re: horizontal lines center of Panasonic HDTV
Usually there is a capacitor in the pump up circuit and/or an IC in the vertical circuit that causes this problem.
