OK, just kidding. If your TV or its remote control has a Reset button you can press it twice to reset the TV to original factory conditions (but you lose all customised picture and sound settings). If the TV receives its signal from a cable box or DVR, try connecting a different device such as a DVD or Blu-ray player and play a movie disc. If the problem on your TV screen still exists that suggests the TV needs repair or replacement. If the picture is OK when playing a DVD movie that suggests that your cable box or DVR is faulty and needs replacing (usually free from the cable TV company).
You'll need a connection to the internet on the tv to get Netflix to work. It would be easier to use a dvd player. Some TV's only use the usb port to update the software inside the TV. If you can use it to watch movies, then you have to format the movie on the thumb drive to whatever is needed by the TV. Example: .avi or . mov files. You should have that information in your manual.
1> sometimes supply of low voltage causes some disturbance in trasmitting video signals,it results in darker images while watching.
2> The DVD may have some scratchs or dust-spots or rough-coat on its recording surface ( reflecting LASER beam ) clean DVD and operate again.
3> your DVD player's SMPS (switched mode power supply ) circuitary fails to perform its function properly and giving irregular supply to video-audio card of the DVD player because of having some failure of electronics component housed on this circuitory.
4> switch the mode among 'PAL' , 'NTSC' , 'AUTO' and OTHER in playback mode options ,one by one taking some minutes.
There should be a setting in the menu of the TV to turn off the auto dim feature (used for adjusting the brightness of the picture depending on ambient room lighting) I don't have a Sony LCD here with me to walk you through the menu settings, but I am certain it is there somewhere. (Chased this issue for the wife who had the same displeasure you're having)
if this is only happening on your dvd player, then change the type of cable used to link the tv with the dvd player, if that does not fix it then try another dvd player to make sure it's not the player itself
