I turn it on, everything can be read and functions but there are lines
Lines lines lines. Horizontal lines across the screen at even intrevals about ever 4 mm the entire screen. I just bought the tv today and this is what I've seen. I've never had an hdtv before but I'm thinking this isn't normal. I haven't looked at a channel yet, because I noticed this one the blue screen, no signal screen, and menu screen

Re: I turn it on, everything can be read and functions...
It's either the main or digital board - - - do not walk run back to where you bought it and get a refund... Then buy an upper end unit with one of the major brands... It will cost a bit more but you'll be MUCH happier...

I have the exact think happening on my Samsung LN46A530 and it has just been 2 years since I bought it. There better be a cheap fix for this because a $2,000 product has to last a lot longer than 2 years.
Sounds like an inverter problem. If the power supply is internal replace the capacitors coming out of the voltage regulators. These are usually 1000mf and/or 470mf. If that doesn't do the trick look up the numbers on the 8-pin chips that drive the secondary transformers on the inverter to see if they are getting the right voltages. Good Luck!
