Hello Everyone

Several days ago I noticed there is a vertical red line which runs from the top of the screen to the bottom. C4 channel seems to be casuing the most problem, when I switch channel to say TV3, I can still see it, but not as bright as in C4 channel. I try TV1, and 2. It is there too. This problems seems to have disappeared last night. My TV set is a sony lcd w4500 series, it is about three months old, bought brand new from Bond and Bond. Before I call for the service center, I was just wondering, it is something to do with the digital freeview channels or is my TV set going crazy ? Please help.

best regards

TV set gone crazy. Demand a brand new replacement.

Spark FibreMAX using Mikrotik CCR1009-8G-1S-1S+. UAP, UAP AC Pro, UAP AC Pro Mesh, Apple TV 4, Apple TV 4K, iPad Air 1, iPhone 6s, VodaTV Gen 2. If it doesn't move then it's data cabled.

If the thread below is to be believed your panel controller may be coozed.  Which requires a new panel to fix because they are integrated in.

Is it only while watching freeview? or is it there when watching a DVD/Blu-ray?

Quick update:

Red line still there. Contacted Bond & Bond, they will send a service guy around to see the problem. When I told them others user have similar problem and got a replacement. Bond and Bond said, they still need someone to see it first, before they decide if a replacement would be send or not. Will keep you guys update.
