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

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.
