Is it a vertical left/right division (black)or top/bottom ?

Actually doesn`t really matter which way it affected , your tv still has a serious problem like very likely the t-con board or the lcd panel itself.

The good news is that your tv is still under warranty but you will have to contact westinghouse first at this number (###) ###-####for the locations of the nearest Westinghouse Electronics service center

You can also lookup this link , just click on it; http://westinghouseelectronics.com/support/warranty/
