This seems like the same problem: Can I fix dead areas on the screen, where lines don't appear?

An Etch-A-Sketch is a simple machine where the knobs end up moving a string from side to side and another from top to bottom. If the strings stretch or for any reason slip, you will get the behavior that you describe. Other than opening up the unit and replacing the string, there is not much that can be done.
