Question Sony KP48V80 - Sound fine - pic goes away

Plays fine for hours but suddenly the Picture goes away and I'm left with a blank screen diplaing my channel in the upper Right corner. Sound continues fine. If I cut it off and cut it back on - Picture returns. Picture seems shallow at times with some minute ripples of loss coloration. I reset the TV via the instruction manual and it's playing so far, but I fear a problem exists and is waiting to occur. -- Any Ideas??

I don't think it's pic tube, but the problem affects the tube.It may be the heater elements. you can see them glow in the dark, thru the back vent holes. It may be just a bad solder joint. hope this helps.
good luck snuffs
