Vertical Noise bars on FX-1

Hi all. I've owned my FX-1 for over three years now and just discovered in playback that there is a prominent green colored noise bar which runs vertically toward the right hand side of a monitor/tv screen. This is present in standby mode in the record position and carries over to the tape. You can especially see it in low light situations. The manual talks of such a bar but if you're shooting a candle or lightbulb which is not the case here. I called Sony and they first had me hit the reset button but to no avail. Their only other remedy was to have it sent for service to a local shop for around $500.00+. Unfortunately, the extended warranty expired last month. I'm hoping this is not the beginning of a degradation of this camera as I've enjoyed using it for some time. Can anyone else relate to this problem?
Thanks for your help.

It's not your TV screen? You can see it in your lcd, and in the computer?
