Vertical color lines

I've had the tv for less than a year, and just today when I turned it on, the colorful lines appeared across the entire screen. Last night it was working fine, and now all I hear is the fan running inside. Attached is a picture of what it looks like.
When I turn it on, the black screen is on for a while, and then turns to this. Nothing seems to work, menu, volume, channel, etc.

I had the same thing happen to me this morning. I turned on the TV and it had colored vertical lines through the whole screen. I called Sony and they had me unplug the TV for about 15 minutes. This solved the problem. They said the boards just needed to be reset. It fixed the problem and I am happy with my Sony once again.

Same problem with the same Sony model. TV is only 2 years old. It seems that this is a common problem...we should do something about this.

I have multi colored vertical lines across the entire screen. The menu screen is perfectly legible when selected on the remote and will go on and off like it is suppose to.

If this tv vertical colors lines problems happen by itself,tv problems not causes by u or an object by hitting forces to the tv LCD screen panel itself.The tv board that call the T-CON board it is dead,this board sit in the bottom in the middle of the LCD screen panel.Must be replaced the T-CON board to solve tv vertical colored vertical lines.Tries websites like Shopjimmy.com,Ebay.com to buy a whole new refurbish T-CON board for the replacement.If causing by u or an object by hitting forces it to the LCD screen panel itself.The tv not worth a whole tv anymore,because by replacing the tv LCD screen panel will cost the same as a new tv.

Vertical lines across my entire screen

My 42" Samsung Plasma HDTV HP-R4252 has a 2" vertical strip of green pixels down the right side of the screen.

My 3 year warranty with Circuit City expires in Nov 2008.. so I hope I'm covered.. can't call until the morning.

Samsung said it might be a logic board problem.. but they want almost $2000 to fix. I might as well buy another TV if Circuit City can't fix it.
