Did you just get the tv? If so take it back and get a new one. My tv of 9 years just got the red line. Mine does go away after the tv warms up, but is there and I know it will get worse. Basically your tv is failing and to fix it you'd be better off getting a new tv. If you didnt just get the tv save up for a new one or if its under warranty have them fix it/replace it for you. As far as the black bars go looks like vertical banding to me which can happen with any tv.

That vertical banding is pretty wide. Maybe the T-Con board?


Anyway, that pronounced narrow purple/red line smack in the middle of the banding looks just like the line I had on my LG.


In my case, it was TAB bond failure. (Solderless connection of a data ribbon cable to the panel). I took the bezel off and gently pressed each ribbon cable with the butt end of a screwdriver and found the one with the bad bond. (The vertical line will either disappear or get wider). I rolled up a bit of electrical tape to make a cushion and put it behind the point where the cable connects with the panel, in a slight recess there. When I put the bezel back on, the bezel was no longer pushing the cable out of alignment.


While the above is not really a "fix", but more of a "band-aid", the TV in question has been fine now for 9 months.

Assuming TAB bond failure, it will cost more than the TV is worth.
