I have a 16 month old 40" F6400 Series 6 Smart 3D Full HD LED TV with 2 horizontal lines about 1/5th of the way up from the bottom that are easily visible and some lighter lines the rest of the way up.Would anyone be able to tell me what could cause this and how would I go about getting it fixed ?. I would be grateful for any help.

likely issue is failing tab driver bonding on the side of the panel. It is not repairable. :-( IF you are lucky, others with similar issues have disassembled the frame and applied pressure on the bonds with some thermal padding material (or equivalent) that change how the tab bonds are contacting the panel.
