My TV is dead I think, this morning my picture was replaced with vertical lines going across the whole screen (http://img812.imageshack.us/img812/5277/sonybraviadead.jpg). The TV is a Sony Bravia KDL40EX503U and is less than 2 years old. The problem is I didn't take an extended warranty because honestly I didn't think I'd need one with a high end Sony TV. I did sign up to their site and register my TV when I bought it though, so not sure if that'll work in my favour.
I'm wondering if anyone knows if Sony will help me and what exactly is the fault? I'm not a rich man and I had to save for a long time for this TV and I can't afford a new one, so if Sony shows me the door I'm stuck with a £600 paper weight unless it's easily repaired.
Thank you for any help,
