Having the same problem. Took it to a repair shop and they say it is some capacitors and the power supply... Which seems kinda hinky to me... I would think one or the other would be the problem, not both at the same time.
The most i have seen an inverter board go for on a 32 inch tv is about 300$ and that was shipped from japan, not having the actual part number off the board makes it difficult to lookup. I usually charge about 100$ to do this type of replacement. so they do seem a bit overpriced, considering it also may just be a bad capacitor or 2 causing the board to fail, they run about 5$ each. If you have another repair shop in the area i would call them and shop around. If everyone seems to have the same amount of price in mind, it may be just time to get a new tv, with the release of the LED HD tv's the prices for lcd are dropping drasticaly , you should be able to get a much larger one for the same price as you paid for that one .
I know it seems like it is a rip off but the diagnoses is probably right. It may well be caused by the digital controller that is mounted to the LCD Panel and is not sold separately so you need to replace the entire Panel whether the Panel it- self is bad or not. Cost of the LCD Panels are expensive and get much more expensive as the size of the screen gets larger. Sorry of the bad news.
Unfortunately in most cases the cost to repair the tv is not worth it. The replacement panel plus the labor in most cases cost's more than what the tv cost you to buy. You can call Sony if you are intrested in the cost of the panel. 1-800-222-7669
