Question about Sony KDL-50EX645 50" LED TV 1920x1080, 240 Hz, HDTV
So I purchase this TV almost a year back and one day a purple vertical line started appearing in the middle of the TV screen. I try everything to fix this and nothing seems to be working. Does anyone know what is causing the issue. Given I have a soon to expire warranty I would like to do something about it as fast as possible. Thank you.

the service is completely free and covers almost anything you can think of (from cars to computers, handyman, and even drones).

This can be the panel itself, and or the matrix decoder/driver boards. The cost of this type of repair can approach the cost of a new set. From your description, I am thinking it is the panel itself that has failed.
Parts for your set are from Sony only because there is no third party manufacturing for these types of parts and assemblies.
Usually, when these types of sets become defective they are usually not worth servicing. During warranty the manufactures generally give a new set to the client, or they give a re-built set which has been built up using parts and modules from other sets that came back for service and had different types of problems.
If you know a tech is is good at servicing these types of set, maybe he can find a number of scrapper set of the same model to take parts from. You just have to hope the ones he finds have the same types of fault.

Ok after over a year i figured out it was the tcon board. Good luck getting finding one. The first one i ordered from shopjimmy was faulty, didn't realize until after the warranty so i ate the cost of it (honestly i thought that it was good and there was another thing wrong with the tv) so i said wtf and bought one last week from ebay. Bam! it works great!!!
