Sony Bravia KDL32BX420 Streaks on the screen?

About two weeks ago I bought a Sony Bravia 32" 1080p LCD TV and I have been noticing that during darker scenes there are thick vertical lines going down the screen. I've tried messing with the settings and everything but nothing seems to fix it. Its very aggravating seeing as how Sony is such a "great brand" and I paid good money for this TV. I have been in the process of buying and exchanging TV's for the past few months because every TV I have tried has had problems. Its really getting aggravating and everyone in my house thinks I'm crazy because of how many TV's I've had to exchange. The strangest thing is that of the TVs I have owned , this Sony and a Samsung I tried a few months ago had the biggest issues..Anyway, I was wondering if anybody has owned this TV and has had this same issue and was able to fix it?

EDIT: I realized I cant post links yet

I was thinking about maybe exchanging it for a 32" LG since I've had bad luck with Samsung and Sony. Has anybody had any experience with LG's and how would it compare to a Sony? BTW, I use my TV mostly for gaming (XBOX 360) and with the 60hz refresh rate on my SONY I havent noticed any motion blur but on my Samsung, the motion blur was horrible. Alright, sorry for the long post but I'm really getting sick of having to exchange my TVs. Thanks for reading.

Oh and the LG Im looking at is the LG 32LK450 ( I would post a link but I cant yet)

Do you have another HD source you can connect to eliminate the possibility that it's a Xbox problem?

I have another HDMI cord my brother uses that I can try. Besides that, the only other connection I have available is composite.

No, not the cable but rather a source like a Blur-ay player, HD cable or satellite box, antenna for OTA reception.

Oh then no. Unless my laptop connected via VGA is considered HD.

Without the ability to connect to another source it will be difficult to determine possible cause, sorry.

Alright thanks anyways. One more question, what are your thoughts on LG LCD's? Im thinking about returning my Sony and getting the LG 32LK450.

I imagine they are as good as any. I prefer Toshiba, Vizio and Sony. In your case though I don't believe it to be the display since so many have had problems. I believe it is your Xbox or the way it is configured.

So what I am saying is "It ain't your TV that's the problem"

I'm not so sure about that. 2 of the TVs I tried had no problems picture wise but they had problems like not turning on or shutting off for no reason. Oh well, thanks for your help..I'm not sure what I'm going to do.
