It sounds like it needs a degaussing. Thats means that the magnetic interference has gotten to high it it's screwing with the screen. (ex. when you take a magnet to close tot he screen it distorts, this is similar) You need to take it to a repair shop or if you got an extended warranty from the store you bought it from call up the number and tell them what's wrong. They will come in with a little round wand and wave it over the screen making it go away. It shouldn't cost you much, and if you find the right repairman, he may do it for free. But, if the discoloration is next to the speaker that could mean a magnetic shield break down and the TV could need a major service repair. If you got an extended warranty, again call and schedule an appointment. If no warranty then call a repair shop, if under manufacturers warranty then call the manufacturer for a list of certified repairmen or instructions on what to do now. I hope that helps.
Best,
