We purchased a new bravia kdl52w5150 on Feb 2, 2010 and on Sunday while we were sitting down to eat dinner, we turned the tv off. Turned it on 20-30 minutes later and there was/is a nice red/blue/green line going down the left side of our screen along with what looks like a crack. Nobody was near the tv, nobody has touched the tv, and it is placed on a tv rather than mounted.
I've done some research and have found a few others that have had this issues as well. I've contacted Sony and did some troubleshooting (nothing helped) and they sent me to an authorized tech to schedule a service call.
Can anybody shed any light on what might have happened? Has anyone had this issue? Also note: there is NO physical damage to the tv. I hoping that it won't take me forever to get this issue resolved, but by the complaints that I see, I'm gonna have along road ahead of me.
