Sorry to hear that you're having trouble with this and I'll do my best to help but need the following info to troubleshoot the problem
- Could you please get me the complete model number written on back cover or side panel of the TV?

Unfortunately, it is problem with the display panel/ the screen internal circuitry and the screen replacement is the only option to resolve the problem. I am really sorry about this and you are going to have to return the TV to have it replaced. It will be covered by the warranty if this has not expired, and the replacement will be done at no cost to you.

If TV is out of warranty then you would be better off with a new TV instead of being spending time and money on this one's repair because screen replacement would cost approx new TV price of the same size. I hope this info will help. If you have any additional questions, feel free to ask

Thanks
