Sony KDL-52XBR9 Dark Bars on Screen

I have a Sony KDL-52XBR9 LCD TV that recently started showing 4-5 horizontal black and gray bars on the screen. Usually, after 20-30 minutes, these bars disappear. Today, the left half of screen was dark and the right half of the screen was extremely bright. Within 5 minutes after starting the TV, the screen went back to normal.

Does anyone know what could be causing this? I believe the warranty has expired. I've had the TV for about 15 months.

Thanks.

Sounds like a possible power board beginning to fail, you should consider a svc call by sony to avoid possble further damages.
Here is a link to a Sony Specific site its run by Sony svc reps.
