Question about Sony Televison & Video
TV has been flashing odd colors on left side of screen for a couple of weeks; today screen is black with only a thin, blue horizontal line about three inches up from the bottom of the screen. Any ideas out there? It is about three years old, so no warranty.
The vertical output section circuit has the fault. Contact any experienced service technician. This is not a user repairable fault.

SOURCE: I have a Flat screen
Are the lines all the way across the screen? or just a few? Solid black - or trannslucent?
Horizontal drive has either data, voltage, or control problem from the pixel registry circuit......get it serviced before the problem spreads causing further damage.
However, in all likelyhood, the panel itself is bad. The Bravia line has had a bad rap about the faulty displays, and at $1800 replacement (plus labor) - it may be time to call SONY direct to complain!

I risk getting a bad rating from you, but it sounds as though you have a bad LCD panel. I have seen sections of the panels fair, usually caused by a separation of the ribbons connecting to the panel itself or a bad TCON board (the board that addresses the pixels. It is part of the panel on Sony TV's). Your best bet is to contact Sony customer service at 800-222-SONY to see if they will work out some kind of accommodation on the repair, like possibly covering the parts or splitting the repair costs with you. I hope I have provided you with good information and you do not rate me poorly for your bad news.
