I have noticed red and blue lines (apx. 1/8 ") starting to show up on my screen. Most noticable when the inputs are off and the screen is dark, these lines are spaced apx. 2 " apart and drop off uniformly on left and right sides of the screen. I have noticed some threads with very similar issues and am trying to figure out if the problem is the same on mine. I also wonder if anyone knows what the problem is and what the fix should be. If anyone knows apx. cost that would also be appreciated - I dont want to spend more than a new TV would cost. Thanks for all the help in advance!!
