This TV has been working normally for the past several months. All of a sudden, I get a thin vertical line appearing about 2 inches from the left of the screen when the tv is turned on. The line runs the entire length of the TV and looks like the pixels are dead (not like faint banding). What I can't seem to figure out, is if it is actually the TV or something else as the line will eventually go away. I feed all my sources through an AV receiver and out to the tv using HDMI. If I move the HDMI cable to the tv to a different input, the line doesn't always follow. Also, if I switch the TV to a different input that has nothing connected, the tv displays a blue background and the line doesn't always appear. Also, if the line appears and I do nothing, it will eventually disappear on its own. Is this indicative of my tv going bad?
