Sanyo DP46848 LCD TV has black screen with colored vertical lines I was watching a movie when the screen went black and had 3 vertical bars about 3 inches wide; each bar contains multiple colored lines. I still have sound. I turned it off and on a few times and after a minute 2 of the bars disappeared until I turned it off and on again, and then it goes through the same cycle. I unplugged it for an hour and tried it again....same thing. After a few more minutes the remaining bar doubled in width. I can send pics if needed.
