    This is my first post so I hope it comes out right,

    I have a 36" Sony Wega TV and I'm getting some kind of interference. The Left side of the screen is slightly lighter than the right side. It gradually gets darker from left to right.

    You can only tell when the screen is close to the same color(really evident on blacks).

    Could this be a cable problem? Or ac interference?

    It happens on both CABLE TV and DVD so it's not the source material. The only thing I can think of is ac interference, or some component under my TV is putting out some interference, I'm suspecting a old cable box...in that case.

    Anyway, thanks for the help.

    Joel, check out the tv forum. Do a search for "uneven brightness problem" and I think you should get a few hits related to Sony Wega sets.

    cheers,
