Hi, I'm Pete. Welcome to JustAnswer! I'm reviewing your question now, and will post back with your reply ASAP.

The flickering lines may be caused by a loose display ribbon cable connection inside the TV - is this something that you will attempt to repair yourself, or are you looking for a TV repairer in your area?

I want to look for a repairer, what do i have to tell him too look for the area ?
Expert:  Pete replied 11 months ago.

The repairer should know straight away one he sees the problem for himself.

If not, you will need to tell him to check the display ribbon cables to ensure they are securely seated in their connections.

If they are coming loose they can be held in place with some glue to stop the problem happening again.
