Horizontal Lines on Samsung LN-T4661F 46" LCD TV

Regarding a 2 year old Samsung LN-T4661F 46" LCD TV:
Starting a couple of weeks ago, three horizontal lines dividing the screen into four equal bands appear when the TV is turned on. The lines are barely visible on the left side of the screen and become more defined to the right. Along with the lines there is also ghosting that becomes more pronounced from left to right. This used to last only a minute or two at startup, but has now progressed to 15 minutes before the lines and ghosting disappear. Once they disappear, the picture is perfect. If the TV is left off for a couple of hours the lines will return.
