Merry Christmas and welcome to Just Answer, a Question and Answer Company. My name is Carl and I will be assisting you today.

Sounds like a loose LCD Cable or a faulty I/O Board that attaches to the LCD if you have color bands and / or lines. If you just opened this and it's new, I hate to say it but you need to exchange it but I doubt the store you bought it from will be open in time before you have Christmas.

If you can upload a picture, I can tell you with 100% certaintly but 95-99% of the time, color bands and / or lines is always a faulty LCD component.
