Nitro 5 Horizontal lines on screen?

My Nitro 5 suddenly had horizontal lines on its screen after working perfectly fine for just over an year. There was no physical damage, no pressure, no bump anytime. I was just watching a video on YT when it suddenly had these lines. I've reset the drivers, booted in safe mode, but lines still persist. A guy at a local repair shop said it could be the display cable issue. But I cannot find the cable online, any solutions?
I live in India, and the screen is 2560x1440, 165Hz, 3ms response (advertised). I've attached photos which show the screen condition and the display cable sticker.

    Have you tried changing the refresh rate in Advanced display settings? Or unable to change from 60Hz, I am unable to view the Refresh rate clearly in your picture, anyway, the part number for the cable is 50.Q7KN2.012
    I couldn't find any retailers in India, I would suggest you contact Acer support centre in India, they might be able to find a retailer in India.

    I'm able to change the refresh rates. I was just trying, when I switched from 165 to 60, the screen worked perfectly for a few seconds, and then the lines appeared again. I did contact one of my nearest service centers, and they denied service of an out of warranty product. Not a day goes by when I don't regret not getting extended warranty.

    The same lines appeared in my Acer nitro gaming monitor today. I disconnected the monitor from the PC but the issue persisted in the "no signal" screen; it is not a software issue for sure.

    Did you resolve the problem?
