Its actually a PS51E6500, OK if you press the menu button of the sets own remote control are the lines OVER the menu display please?
How thick or thin are the lines in inches please?

Hi Anthony

Thank you for your reply.

The lines are over the menu screen too. They are an eighth of an inch in thickness and an inch apart.


Its likely to be the plasma panel bad sometimes the scan boards can cause issues like this but for the vast majority of the time for lines this thin its the plasma panel itself, unfortunately its not an option to replace the panel due to the cost .
I am sorry for this poor news
