hi there
i have a problem with my screen here .. today suddenly i see the waves [ i mean the lines going up like u see the monitor ( pc ) on movies ( old ones ) ] on my screen i though that it's because of the lights and it's normal and a few hours later i checked that again and figured out syh is wrong / for being sure about what happened is it from screen or the main part inside or not i capture a test video and watch it on Pc and i did see those waves again ..

1 ) This is a test Video uploaded here : http://www.mediafire.com/download/8zyzj5ryrgq1m5a/test.avi
2 ) DropBox Link : https://www.dropbox.com/s/sqm38sa28h4500p/test.avi

what do u think about ? is that cause of the sensor ? is it going to be ok ? what i must to do ? ( repair or sth ? )
what should i do ?

    What are your setting on the camera body? What lens?

    From what I can see, it maybe due to the lighting in the area you are shooting at.

    In the setup menu look for "flicker reduction". Page 139 in the D3100 manual.

    Looks like it could be fluorescent light flicker...
