Brand new, delivered 8/1/07. Connected to Oppo DVD via HDMI. Watched an entire movie(perfect picture). During the second movie picture disappears and entire TV screen displays various color bars, after one minute screen settles down to six faint white horizontal bars and 6inch by 6 inch vertical color bars in lower left corner(similar to UPC code in appearance). Using remote to change video settings does not alter screen except to change some of the colored bars making them larger. Menu feature does not operate either from remote or TV. Audio continues to play properly. Tried various DVDs and switched to Sony DVD player through component conections with same result. When TV is turned on the standby light does not come on, or blink. Sony TV support sent email with general picture problem troubleshooting tried all with no help. All ideas appreciated.

HDMI is a very buggy system, espicially with connecting computers. First off I would check the video output settings of your computer to ensure that HDMI is still active and that it is enabled for mirror monitor or double monitor.
First things first unplug and re-plug at every point. Power cycle the TV and the computer. If that doesnt work then remove the cable, power cycle both devices then re-plug...then move onto the next step.
If you are running windows XP or Vista, right click on the desktop, select "personalize" or "properties" then look at the display settings. There you can adjust the resolution, HDMI has some bandwidth issues with long cables and cheap cables. Try dropping the resolution of the HDMI output if you can't get a stable image.
If that doesn't help you may have to go into the settings of the graphics card, commonly refered to as "Advanced Settings" on XP.
If it still doesn't help get another HDMI source and test the TV, then get another display and test the computer.
HDMI outputs from devices such as DVD players do carry both video and audio, but the HDMI output from your computer video card only carries video. You'll need to connect a cable from the computer sound output to the TV as well.
you can have the inverter board replaced...instead of the entire panel.
