Recently developed horizontal black/lighter bands towards the bottom of the screen. The dark bands are several inches wide and looks somewhat like a zebra stripe (although one of the lines doesn't go all the way across the screen). I tried to attach a picture. It's a distinctive pattern and does not change; however, it does not always occur. If you put it on an empty channel with "snow" it does seem to go away for a while. While somewhat intermittent it does occur frequently on all inputs and sources. Adjusting the settings (contrast, backlight, local dimming, etc) has no effect. We had it in for service and they replaced the main circuit board but a week or so later the same problem occurred. A new TV is not an option at this point and when it works right the TV gets a truly wonderful picture.

I don't have a lot of confidence that my local repair shop will be able to properly diagnose and repair the issue. Any suggestions or experience with this problem?
