This TV's LCD screen has a dark vertical band in the centre, increasing gradually to normal brightness on either side (please see link to photo below). The band in the centre still shows the video; it's just not backlit.
Sony KDL-46BR6 partial dark screen
I'm guessing the backlighting is the problem, and that the backlight components are an integral part of the screen (i.e., not individually replaceable), meaning the TV is toast.
Am I right about this? It's only later Sony TVs that came with LED backlighting that's replaceable independently of the screen, correct?
Thanks in advance for any help I can get!
