@Arctic Prodigy
Of all the people I've seen replace the screen after lines, they have all said it was the cable that connected the mobo to the LCD that was the issue.

Problem is you can't just buy the cable. You need the entire LCD assembly for it. You might be able to get away with just replacing that, and have the spare screen for if it gets dropped of something.

Give you something to think about trying before scraping the old lcd

The Slim ROM Dev said the issue went away with the thermal control edits he placed in his kernel. The test builds he was pushing out was giving black lines until those commits were merged. I don't know exactly what code it is, but it's definitely something with the kernel upon boot.
