This also happened to me and may continue to get worse... If it goes away for a while after warming up, then it is the same problem... The LCD panel is probably going out, when that happens the cost to repair it is more than the tv is worth... If it is in warranty then you can have it replaced or fixed.

Testimonial: "You were so right. Thanks."
Hi Ron, thanks for describe many valuable details. You suspect something wrong with the fluorescent tube, if it is true, shall be dark on top or bottom, not left or right, also the problem with the backlight the TV will shut off and the timer LED will blink 6 times.
I think there is the bad connection inside the panel or the t-con board, only think you can do is try to reconnect the wires under the aluminum foil (see the picture) or replace the panel.

if the line is pixel thin, it could be a bad lcd panel. if it is a wider bar, it may be in the video circuitry. many of these sony tvs had bad panels, and sony has extended the warranty. call up sony with your model and serial # and date of purchase and try to get them to help you out, that is your best course of action. let me know if you need more troubleshooting assitance.

Suggest return or exchange. This is a newest model, and on factory warranty, if can't return or exchange, you have to complaint it until the panel is replaced. in fact, it is 90% panel defective. right now the LCD panel quality is too bad.
