The tv was bought just shy of 4 years ago & the warranty has 12 days left on it. I bought it @ futureshop.
Recently, when it's turned on in the morning, parts of the screen turn a dark colour, typically the left half is worse, but other times it takes up all of the screen, except the top two or three inches, but on a couple of occasions, it was so dark the pic was barely visable from top to bottom, side to side.
Also, sometimes the left side of the screen from the left edge over perhaps 3 inches or so, gets a white bar that can run halfway up, or all the way up to the top of the screen.
After it's on for a few minutes it seems to go back to normal but it's happening almost every day..it seems to redraw the picture so to speak slowly, changing back to normal.
For anyone that works at repairing tv's, or has experience, what's the most likely problem(s)?
We've taken good care of it but it has had a lot of use since it was bought, perhaps as much as twice the average.
Side note...I contacted the service dept, & they said I should hear from the serviceman within two days.
Thanks for any ideas of the likely problem in advance.
