Having problems with your Flat Panel Televisions ?

I have a JVC LT-42e488 LCD tv. Bought it in 2008. Last week in the middle of a movie, the screen washed out. I can still see what is going on but it's washed out so much if gives you a headache to look at it. Whites and Grays and pinks and reds are too bright. It does it on DVDs and cable. Can you give me an idea of what may be wrong? I'm desperate and afraid to get taken advantage of at a tv repair shop. $50 to tell me what is wrong with it and who knows what else.
