Test the monitor on a different PC - - if the same problem occurs then the monitor itself is faulty.

Repair of monitors is not economically viable, it would cost too much so dispose of it at your local waste disposal facility and buy a new one.

Are you asking about a monitor or a laptop screen? If the laptop screen is whacking out, try connecting an external monitor. If you can bring up a normal display, you'll know the laptop & it's graphics card is good, meaning the problem is with the screen itself or the internal wiring to it. If the same display problems occur with the external monitor, you'll know there's a problem with the laptop's graphics.

✔ Best Answer
Whenever things change when you push or poke something it is down to a hardware fault, at or close to the place you are doing this. It can be a component fault or simply some loose connection, such as a frayed cable or connector. Whatever, something will need to be fixed or replaced - no controls or software will fix it.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

I do agree with Derek, most probably it’s a hardware problem. Still you can do Monitor Self-Test by disconnect video cable from back of Monitor and look for those lines.
You can boot your system in BIOS and see if the lines appears or not. Boot system in Safe Mode and check if you get the lines or not.
Very rarely, it could be an OS problem. If you do not get lines in these commands then it’s a software issue.
