Its banding.

But this is banding, which is a common issue on LCD's so why is this not serviceable

It is serviceable.

The reply at the other site did tell you that. The real question is, is it worth the money to fix it?

True, but can something be done?

Other than repairing it, is it possible to mess with the brightness to see if you can make the lines less visible?

That's for you to try.

But you did make me think that what if it's just in need of cleaning. But as that again is not user serviceable as you take it apart to clean, you are going to have to make up your mind what to try.

Is it banding if...

Okay so is it banding if I do not get the black light lines when the hdmi is off, so lets say im playing xbox and i turn off the xbox but keep on that source, and I dont see any black lines? also when I do the picture test, the black lines do not show up either...

But as I wrote before, your gear, your choice. I doubt any tech or person will instruct you further except to arrange for service.
