It does sound like this is an alignment problem of the blue LCD or a problem on the main board controlling it. I am not sure if this is a field adjustable unit. A call to the authorized service center should provide that answer.

Sony KF50WE610 Vertical Blue Lines Across Screen

the vertical blue lines indicate some interference from other electronic gadgets near your tv. it started showing up on my sony grand wega when i installed my wireless modem. i almost ordered a new rear projection lamp costing over $100 but decided to experiment. i first moved my desk computer farther away from the tv then isolated the wireless modem router by placing it inside a small glass - the vertical blue lines became lighter in color so i dedided to find another small glass that fit inside the first glass container then put the router in the double glass - no more blue lines and my wireless modem router still works.
do some deductive thinking to figure out what's messing up your tv and isolate the interference.
good luck!

That sounds like vertical failure. Does the blue line run across the screen from side to side? Try resoldering the vertical output IC and see if that straightens it out. This is sometimes been a problem with that chassis. Let me know how you make out or if you need additional help.
