Just talked with Sony Support today.
It seems that Sony in Denmark had sent out new software updates (over DVB-T) but also some wrong TV's got updated as well. This caused my DVB-T tuner to not function anymore so I wanted to try a factory reset and it fixed my problem.
So I was instructed on how to do this. I have a Sony Bravia KDL-32P3000 (which should be similar to the U3000 and S3000 as well).
This is how to do a factory reset of your Sony Bravia KDL-32 P/U/S-3000 TV.
PLEASE BE VERY CAREFUL WITH THE SERVICE MENU, YOU CAN EASILY CAUSE YOUR TV TO MAL-FUNCTION!!!! IF YOU FOLLOW THIS GUIDE IT IS AT YOUR OWN RISK!!!
Set your TV in standy (use the green power butten on your remote), RED standby LED is ON on your TV.
Now press these buttons in this order on your remote (pointing to the TV).
VOL UP (+)
GREEN POWER button
NOW BE CAREFUL! Dont press any keys just for the fun of it!!! IT MAY DESTROY YOUR TV.
You should now be in the service menu. It will show up as some green letter/numbers spread over the screen (mine are a bit hard to see/a bit faded). In the upper right corner you should have 2 letters TT (two t's).
Now carefully press key 0 and then key 8 on your remote (they should be shown on the screen after the two TT).
Now wait a little while (more than 10 seconds) and your TV should reset with factory settings, just as if you had just brought it home from the TV store.

While holding down the UP arrow key, press the power button. The TV will turn off and back on and reset to factory default settings. Hope this helps

There is a problem with the processor. The only way to resolve this issue is to replace the main board. It is called the A board in your TV.
There are two for this model and the correct one will depend on what your serial number is.
Part numbers are as follows:
part # 185709211 for Serial #
1,000,001 - 1,350,000
1,700,001 - 1,750,000
1,800,001 - 1,804,270
1,804,271 - 1,818,372
1,818,373 - 1,830,000
list price: $504.87 core charge: $680.00
part # 185709231 for all other serial numbers
list price: $505.87 core charge: $600.00

Testimonial: "Thanks, Now I wonder who all shares the same problem and if Sony is willing to do something about their defective products..."
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...

That symptom may cause by the main board or t-con board, I suggest you do software up grade first.
