Is my TV dead?

I've attached a picture of my several year old Philips TV. Is it dead? Can I rescue it? It is worth the trouble? It just suddenly happened while it was on. Did not drop it or anything.

Thanks.

Probably the T-con board (timing control board). Depending on the size of your display it's probably just as cost effective to replace the set.

Had a Samsung LCD years back do the same thing. You can bang on the back of the TV set or let it warm up sometimes and it will go away until the next restart. But yes, it is likely cheaper and more effective to replace the set.
