, my name is***** be happy to assist you.
Please allow me to ask you a few questions to diagnose the problem.
- Can you please get me the model number off of Samsung TV?
- Do the lines appear on all video input sources?
- Is the TV own menu screen also affected with these lines if press menu button on TV or its remote?
These info will help to troubleshoot the problem.

no its the same idont leave on standby iturn electric off every night

Thanks Kevin info.
This kind of problem almost always occurs due to internal circuitry failure of display panel (the screen) and entire screen will need to be replaced in TV to resolve the problem but it would cost around new TV price of same size because replacement screen is costly part of TV, at this point you would be better off with a new TV instead of spending money and time on this TV's repair.
I wish I had better news about this TV, I trust my input will help you out. Please feel free to respond if you have any additional questions.

Wish you good luck!
