So, I have a Sharp Aquios LCD, a good 8-10 years old. Started showing horizontal green lines awhile back. Weird thing is if I unplugged the power cable and plugged it back in, it fixed the problem. This worked for awhile but now the lines are there 100% of the time. The flicker and fluctuate but I've tried different cords, outlets, etc...and its still there. I'll attach a picture.

But, my main question is if it looks like a problem worth fixing. I'd pay $50 bucks to fix it and don't really have the money to buy a new TV, but my gut is saying to fix this thing will be $200 or more, which at that point I could get a pretty good new 4k TV for $500-$800 bucks.

What do you guys think?

Whether I go with A-q-u-i-o-s (About 85,600 results) or A-q-u-o-s (About 1,200,000 results), that is a lot of results to have to go through.

He's cleverly trying to tell you that we need a model number to help you. No Pro TV repairman is going to fix it for $50, if that is what you are asking.

Any blinking front panel LEDs?

Anything suspicious noted once back of set is removed (Puffed/Leaky capacitors or smoke damage)? Especially on Power board.
Try carefully unplugging ribbon type cables at tcon and reseating?

No blinking on the front panel. I'll check for damage and try resetting the ribbon cables. Thats a good idea.
