from the above troubleshooting answer desk for your specific TV I find two related questions and one solution each. Depending on what you paid for your TV and whether it is still under warranty, etc. some TV's are like microwaves and VCR's, if they break geta new one.
Q: I have a 60in. Mitsubishi and the screen looks like the tacking off. At first you would turn on the tv and after it warmed up it would stop flickering and would come in clear. Now it wount stop flickering(like the tracking is off)
A: Some electolytics on a small regulator IC are going bad. Take it to a shop
Q: the picture image gets distorted when you first turn it on...the image on the screen jumps similar to the way old sets did and you could correct the issue with a horizontal hold control. This big screen doesn't have this type of control as far as I know
A: possible bad solder connections at the horizontal drive transformer connections, could also be a bad capacitor in the horizontal circuit look for Capacitors that are bulged or show signs of leakage.
I'd take your unit to a repair shop or look in your owners manual for tech support phone number.
Some shops will tell you what they charge to look at it and the cost if it needed fixing, and some will subtract the initial "bring it in charge" from the repair bill.

good answer
I looked over some of your open questions to see what was there. You've got some questions that are pretty much beyond my reach, but I did notice you are at least getting some advice from the other experts. Over the months, a couple or 3 of my questions get no answers at all. So, be lucky you are getting help and maintain a dialogue with them.
