Customer: replied 4 years ago.
The vertical lines are different colors-they changed every few minutes. i have had this tv for almost 2 years. I just checked my tv and it is working fine . Can you tell me what happened and why it suddenly fixed itself?
Expert:  Edward replied 4 years ago.

The vertical striping is normally caused by a defective T-Con board, a defective LCD panel or a loose connection on one of these. A poor solder connection will often cause intermittent problems. Sooner or later the problem will continue all the time until it is fixed. The T-con board used to be considered unrepairable but Sony has now made the parts available and have issues a service bulletin on the repair. If the LCD panel has become defective the repair will cost more than a new TV will coat. Using the information you provided I expect the problem is a poor solder connection. T-Con board repair or the poor solder connection, loose connection should cost $350 or less.
