KDL 46W5100 vertical lines on screen

My screen collects thin vertical coloured lines from top to bottom across the screen. It seems they are picked up from the boldest color currently displayed at any time. They build / change / reduce according to whats on the screen at any time.

There is also some black lines running evenly across the screen spaced out by 10 or 15 pixels.

The problem has previously happened intermittently and could be solved by turning the tv off overnight and it would not reoccur for weeks at a time. Now the symptom will not go away.

This happens on all inputs.

If this is a repairable problem can somebody point me in the direction of which component could be faulty.

The TV is about 2 years old just out side of warranty.
