Question about Televison & Video
Not exactly sure, but I have had related issues ( I'm an electrician) it is possible the wall outlet's polarity my be switched (hot and neutral reversed) hot is the short slot on receptacle. The best way to check is get a receptacle tester at Lowe's , home depot, etc there not expensive and easy to use if it reads open ground is not a big deal and shouldn't be the cause of ur problem, many home do not have grounds but should be utilized when possible. Good luck

my maxent plasma tv has the same problem but it has green and red lines. I found out that hitting the tv from the back works. It used to last a long time but now i have to get up now and then to slap the tv on back with my hands! anyone with a long term solution?

Since the TV is still receiving power, the problem is going to be with the TV's mainboard. After you unplugged the TV and plugged it back in, you said the power light went out again, so I assume the standby light wasn't flashing again? The flashing standby light is indicating an error code so my suggestion is to contact Sony for service options regardless if there is a warranty or not because service is the only solution to this situation. Don't forget to provide them the error code or 4 flashes repeating.

A plasma screen uses thousands of tiny fluorescent bulbs in different colours (red blue and green) to produce a picture. Just like standard house hold fluro lamps, these tiny bulbs use starters to turn them on and off. As there are so many bulbs in the panel and therefore starters, the panel has a number of "starter controllers". These controllers can control anywhere from a quarter up to half of the screen. If a controller dies, it takes out it's segment of the screen. Unfortunately, it sounds as if this is what has happened in the case of your LG - this is also common in NEC and Fujitsu panels. Althought these controllers can be fixed, it usually takes more time and money than it's worth- unless you have it under warranty in which case the manufacturer will just replace it. Sorry top be the bearer of bad news. hope it helps
