Question about Sony BRAVIA KDL-40S2000 40 in. LCD HDTV
This is a backlight problem, possibly the cold flourescent lamp at the top of the LCD display panel or (less likely) a bad inverter board. To prevent further damage to the TV, I suggest you not turn it on until it's fixed. You may be able to find CCFL replacement tubes on line, but I can't say the job will be easy and you won't notice possible backlight inconsistancies. If the CCFL wires are long enough to swap, you could move them to each others connector and see if the problem moves to the bottom of the screen. If it moves the lamp is bad. If the problem stays on the top it's the most likely the inverter.
