    No I'm not.. Not til tomorrow.. When the issue first happened, which was a few days ago, it would go away after a few minutes but now it won't go away at all

    It sounds to me like hardware failure.

    I'm guessing that it could. It would need repairer diagnosis. Of course, I may be wrong in thinking that it's a hardware fault. We have an expert on these things, whom I shall ping.

    Anything you see on the screen that doesn't show in a screenshot is being generated by the screen or associated wiring (a screen shot is actually a "memoryshot" of the RAM that's being sent to the screen).

    It's possible that the screen is divided into bands, one wire for each band, and one wire, or one pin on the connector, is bad, but I'd be more inclined - if I were working on it - to plug in a known-good screen first. If that didn't show the band, I'd replace the screen. (It's going to take a real repair shop, not a "replace parts" shop.)
