Hi, I'm Nathan.
Sorry to hear that you're having trouble, but I'll do my best to help you. Please give me a few moments to review and reply.

What is the model of the tv?
Does this happen on the tvs own menu screens as well?
Is it a vertical or horizontal line? Would you be able to upload a photo here of the screen for me to see?

I love this site! $9 instead of a repairman or new/used frig can't be beaten. This older woman will worry less now that she knows about this site. Bless you all.
