The controller board for the screen is going bad. check for replacement parts. It's not a difficult job to do. Once the back of the TV is removed, you'll see it near the center of the screen.

Your tv horizontal section is faulty change the horizontal transistor.or the diode that is at the leg of the collector of the other checks around the transistor cause it can be more than one component is faulty in that section.also make checks in the power there is a diode that feeds from the pout put of tv regulator that might be leaking or is open.

1) Press MENU.
2) Scroll to SETTINGS.
3) Scroll to SCREEN.
4) Go to HORIZONTAL CENTER. Move the picture to the right. Hopefully, the line will go away. Otherwise, there is a problem with the pixels or the signal processor. Call 1-800-222-SONY. Or, Have a high-limit credit card handy for out of warranty repairs. Sorry about that.

Vertical, pencil-thin blue line appears after 10 minutes of viewing (any source)

I would suspect a connection breaking down as the set heats up. A shop will probably have to put the set in a stand to hold it while they check for loose connections or defective components inside. Not a DIY job by any means. If this line went completely through the picture either vertically or horizontally and stayed there then this would have indicated a failure in the Panel itself. A thin Line any where on the screen consisting of one pixel in width is a Panel Failure according to Hitachi.
