SOURCE: My screen Half Black - Half Red
you have a warranty! the set has a problem either with the panel or the main board take it back to the store where you bought it and exchange it or have it repaired by a factory authorized repair place.

It is possible that Twin Picture function is enabled, turn it off with remote/ menu options.
If this is not the case then T-Con board sounds bad and needs to be tested/ replaced.
Qualified tv tech will test and replace it.

My parents have the same issue with their Sony KDL-46V4100 TV and were told by the tech that the LCD screen was physically broken and would have to be replaced. The replacement of the screen would cost more than a brand new TV and the TV is not longer under warranty. After the TV is on for awhile the Black cloud goes away but it always comes back when they turn the TV off/on. It stays for 20 - 30 minutes sometimes. The Tech took both top corners of the TV and pushed one back and pulled one forward to show them he could recreate the problem after the black blob cleared up. By twisting the corners he made the blob reapper which he claimed was becuase of the damaged screen. I have no idea how the screen was damaged? I helped them take it out fo the box and set it up. We never dropped it bumped it once? It's never falled off the stand so go figure? It would be nice to find more people with this issue and get a recall going. Something that expensive should last longer than to two years.
