Okay firstly thanks for the replies. Also I think I may have figured out what was giving me those bars. I have my tv hooked up to a surge protector and the light on it was telling me that the electrical was not properly grounded. Iam in an apartment building so the electrical is probely old. I switched outlets and the vertical bars broke up and dispersed on the screen.. (kinda looks grainy now-the screen is not totally pitch balck) in other words it less noticeable and only visible if I have contrast 100% on a totally black screen. Interesting I didnt realize how necessary it is that HDTV's are sensitve to a proper outlet.
