Does anyone else see this on their LCD?

Hi all this may sound very trivial, but gonna ask anyway.
When My Tv is on a black screen (but still turned on) it's not pitch black as there is a backlight behind it (this is not what I am complaining about) I have noticed lots of vertical lines covering the whole television, from a distance and when a film is fading to black it kind of looks smeary for eg.
Is this normal on all LCDs? I was just making sure that it wasnt just my set?
Thanks :)

Not noticed a grid-like structure to mine, nope - what LCD is it?

It is a 37" Grundig (GULCD37HDIT)
Dont get me wrong it's an ace set, the PQ is amazing with SKYHD.
I posted another forum a while back asking a similiar question...it was more about for eg. when I am playing a game on Gamecube, and when the camera is panning or scanning, I can make out straight vertical and horizontal lines on the set, it is hard to notice but once you do, you kind of always look for it!
That's actually a quirk with the GameCube's video output. I noticed it on my CRT in 2003 when I was playing Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker. Are you sure that's not what you're seeing?
