Great system...replaced lamp once. Starting last weekend, screen now showing "blue" light about an inch from the bottom on the right half of the screen. The blue line varies in intensity depending on scene changes.
Check settings, cables, etc. with no luck. System was not moved or hit. Put it on DVD mode with nothing playing. Screen is black (as it should be) but blue line exits (just not as bright).

This is a very common problem with this Panasonic set where half the right side is bad and the other half is good. This has been traced to a general plasma panel defect in the manufacturing precess. The panel lasts only about 1.5 years and they go bad. The only solution is to replace the plasma panel. The charges for the cost and labor will double the original prize of the TV set.Good luck.
The failure(s) in your TV is related to a part called light engine or optical block and Sony TVs are known for these kind of failures with the video showing with different colors or lines.
Check the link provide for more info or if you would like to try fixing the TV yourself.
Let me know if you would need further assistance.
I have the exact same problem with my AE700. It a started about the same time, around 2500 hours for me. I lived with it untill I could afford a new bulb which arrived yesterday. The old bulb was still working at a 3603 hours when I installed the new one. But the new bulb didn't fix the problem for me either. I may try to take it apart this weekend and give it a good cleaning.
