    Hi all, I have had a KV36-FS70 for around 2 years now, and it has been fine (I had to swap it twice at the start with purity / ap. grille problems).

    We have recently obtained a problem with the set "popping" when starting from warm (the engineer thinks that it is either the power supply or audio circuits.

    HOWEVER I now have an additional feature. I get a collection of small dark lines (around 4 or 5) that scroll across the screen in a band. There is only 1 collection of these lines around 1" in combined width.

    The scrolling moves from left to right, stops occasionally and goes back the other way. This fades during the time that the set is on, and after a hour you cannot see it at all unless you put the brightness up to max.

    The effect is noticable on all inputs.

    I have heard the legend of the scrolling bars, and checked for it over a year ago, and I am sure that this problem is new thing.

    Can anyone tell me if it sounds like the scrolling bars problem? As I understood that, they never get better, but this seems to get better after around 1 hr?

    thanks for any help!
