Sounds like the LCD is going bad. Could be a wire short inside the display casing, or any number of other things you won't be able to fix yourself.

Have you tried unplugging the Display for an hour or so to let it cool down and reset itself? Speaking of resetting, have you tried adjusting any settings on the display itself (brightness, contrast, resolution, etc?)
