Sorry not a solution...We also have exact same problem (TV about 1.5 years old) - out of warranty - all Sony told me to try was to un-plug TV for 2 minutes - useless.
I am trying to decide if I should bring to service store to try to fix.
I hate to spend a couple of hundred dollars to find out it costs $2000 - less then a new one.
Anyone have any suggestions?

I think 80% is the panel, and other 20% maybe the t-con board or LVDS cable. rock the cable or cool down the t-con to test it.

Testimonial: "We had sent it out to a repair shop and was told that, after replacing the board, it WAS the panel..which is $3000 for the part and $300 for the labor"
SOURCE: I have a Sony KDL40W4500
T-Con board failure or poor connection of flexible wire and LVDS cable. Sometimes these connection loosen up from their terminals. Try to unplug and reconnect these cables to refresh the connections. If the symptoms still persist you need to replace the T-Con board. T-Con board is installed on the upper side of your LCD TV and it has two flexible wire connected to LCD PANEL .
