I risk getting a bad rating from you, but it sounds as though you have a bad LCD panel. I have seen sections of the panels fair, usually caused by a separation of the ribbons connecting to the panel itself or a bad TCON board (the board that addresses the pixels. It is part of the panel on Sony TV's). Your best bet is to contact Sony customer service at 800-222-SONY to see if they will work out some kind of accommodation on the repair, like possibly covering the parts or splitting the repair costs with you. I hope I have provided you with good information and you do not rate me poorly for your bad news.

SOURCE: sony bravia kdl 32l4000 - color bars running vertically on screen

In most cases is the screen is covered with vertical lines all the way accross the screen then the T-Con module is at fault. The t-con board is replaceable without having to replace the entire LCD panel which would usually make it cheaper than replacing the TV. The part number I come up with is 1-857-213-11. Please take a moment to rate my answer. Thanks...

Why is the picture on my Sony KDL-46VL160 good on the left, dark in the center and distorted with slow refresh to the right?


Back-light problem. Contact the authorized service center for Sony.
Check and replace damaged component/s at its back-light inverter board, or replace this board as card basis. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Surf the site with patience. Pull up older posts. It will be best to replace the inverter board as card basis.

Kdl-46vl160 no picture but back light working


If the screen lights up a very dark blue almost black then the Tcon would be suspect. You can get the replacement Tcon from www.tvrepairworld.com

Large area at top of the screen is not bright , constant, appears like atop filament of a bulb is blown?


chances are you have a bad inverter board. It can cause half the screen to be dark if a portion of it is bad. There is also the chance that a phosphor lamp could be bad in the panel but usually that would cause the set to shut down.
