Why are there horizontal lines and double images

Sony Bravia KDL46W4100 LCD TV is 2yrs old, when I first power it up now there are horizontal lines and double images just on the right side of the screen, the left is fine. This will go away after 5-10 minutes then the picture looks good. I had someone tell me to power off, unplug the TV and wait a couple minutes and plug back into a different outlet but got the same results. I also replaced the expensive surge block it was plugged into as requested and it still does it.

My first impression is that you have a component/IC on the logicboard that has a bad solder joint or BGA and as the unit heats up proper contact is made. The only other thing that makes sense is 1 or more capacitors are going out. They are loosing their charge when the system is powered down and not fully recharging for the time frame you speak about. Your TV needs some attention from a qualified repair person.

More likely to be T-CON board problem, if you Google "SONY LCD TV PANEL PROBLEM", you will see why.
