My TV is about 10 years old. There are horizontal lines about 3 ins. down from the top of the screen. It seems that these lines go all the way up to the top of the screen and then fold back down for abut 3 ins. The picture and color is still there but somewhat distorted. Is this worth fixing or do I need a new tv? This was an expensive console when I bought it. If this is fixable I would appreciate a part number and where to purchase it if that would be possible.

We have a Samsung LE32A457, whilst we were watching T.V tonight the top halve of the screen suddenly appeared with green lines halfway down the screen and that half of the picture was unwatchable, T.V is 2 years old. We have removed all scart leads but this did not help and the problem still exists, when shutting down a white horizontal line across the centre of the screen appears from this line upwards the picture is faulty. Any help or advice would be grateful.
no ....the tube will end up after 20 yrs in 10 yr old sony... it is worth if u fix it. randomly going black means...horizontal driver trans former is the problem..or any loose contact with the 110 volt supply to that transformer,,or any loose contact with line o/p transformer.. (horizontal driver transformer may be gone then tv behaves like this) if any other parts gone tv wont come back.... there may be a loose contact call a service pro..
Check capicitor in vertical hold circuit. You should have solid knowledge of electronics repair before attemping repair. TV's can emmit harmful radiation, and produce voltages up to or in excess of 30kV.
well i think your husband is right. it might be three years old, but the sligtest damage can kill it. so what you need to do is start saving up for a new tv. sorry for waht happened. maybe somebody hit the screen?
