Sony Bravia 46 XBR has the input bar stuck at the top of screen.
The TV works just fine but the input bar on top stays there and does not disappear as it used to. Also when I try to go to the menu or access any functionality using the navigation buttons the message "Powering on. Please wait...". apperas and I can't go any further. Could anyone please help me with this?

Unplug the TV for a while and hopefully, that should reset the circuity. If you're using the original remote control, check for the display button and press it.
I would also suggest doing a factory reset if your TV has that feature and if the TV allows you to do it after unplugging it.

I'm a 100% certain your LCD panel is bad, I've run across a lot of Sony/Samsung's with the same problem. It can be fixed but involves taking the TV apart. I have 5 flat screens in my home, 3 of them had the same problem yours had, I patched them and they are working fine! A replacement panel will cost more than a new TV set so that's not an option. If you do no wish to fix, I would suggest putting it on Craigslist as a parts unit, someone will buy it. If I have been a help to you please sign my guest book
Sounds like the tcon (timing control) board. Sometimes unplugging the LVDS cables from the tcon, cleaning and reconnecting solves this. The catches on the LVDS cables are easily damaged and must be handled carefully.
Usually this happens to my set when I am in HD cable channel mode after being on a non-digital ANALOG channel.
I basically reset the TV by changing to a DIGITAL cable channel -- stay on that channel for ten-twenty seconds -- then I switch back DIRECTLY to a HD channel (key in channel number directly on remote).
TV works fine -- seems to be a glitch when the TV changes modes from Analog to HD
had what sounds like the same problem. we had the protection plan and called for assistance. he advised us to unplug the tv for 1 minute. when we plugged back in, problem seemed solved. he could not explain why other than to check online with sony for more technical info about this remedy. stay tunned for whether it was a temporary fix......
