Well this is NOT GOOD, I get this symptom, in my shop, a few times a year. usually it is caused by the failure of the Horizontal Amplifier circuit. However what has "Caused" this to fault, can and is, often, many various "Causes", and Both the "Cause" and the "Damage" must be repaired or the problem, will simply come back, perhaps worse. If this is a straight forwards job, it may cost say 1.5 - 2 hours labor and say $85.00 or so, in "Bits" but this could easily double, if there are any other eventualities. So, it is my professional opinion that one should always get a "Quote" from, the manufacturers recommended service center, I cannot stress how important that last point is. It is even worth the cost of shipping. The local, "Head Office" should be contacted, and asked for a repair referral, you see an authorised service agent, will have trained staff, trained on their brand, also they have first hand access to parts, original parts. This will actually save you money and ensure you can actually get it back fixed. Of course asking for a "Quote" before proceeding with any repair, also gives one the option of repair or replace. Often my clients,do not go through with repair, unless it is moderate, but in some of the more costly jobs they see it, as do I, that a replacement, with a warranty, is a better option. Only if one wanted to of course, As an aside here, one could then tear the TV down, and sell the Known Good bits. You'd be surprised who needs parts, I myself often must by from third party sources to effect a repair. So money could be recouped, somewhat,and help out someone else.
