Jack :

Hi and welcome to justanswer.
To answer your question;
If the lines were vertical, i would say possibly the T-con board or the cables that connects it to the panel but in case of horizontal lines then it looks like the bonding of the panel itself as come apart i`m afraid.

Jack :

In which case there isn`t much that can be done.

Jack :

If you knock on the frame beside those lines, does it seem to affect it somewhat ?

JACUSTOMER-u7sksw1s- :

No sir,I still have the back off, if that helps

Jack :

Do you have the tv nearby ?

JACUSTOMER-u7sksw1s- :

Yes sir just fired it back up

JACUSTOMER-u7sksw1s- :

TV is on on working with the exception of the lines

Jack :

Sometimes knocking on the frame or pushing on the panel itself near the lines will affect it but not always

Jack :

In any case this is not looking good for the LCD panel itself

JACUSTOMER-u7sksw1s- :

Well thats not want I wanted to hear

JACUSTOMER-u7sksw1s- :

Any other options on what it may be

Jack :

I`m sure and i`m sorry to be the bearer of bad news .
Do you have something of a picture behind those lines ?

Jack :

Are they covering the whole screen or just part of it?

JACUSTOMER-u7sksw1s- :
