Never noticed that with mine or my other bodies with the top plate. Can you describe the bleeding? All of the plate or just part of it? How does it clear itself, with a power down?

That has to be very rare. I have never seen any bleeding Top LCD, or even heard/read about it, on cameras. However, I have seen a few examples of LCD bleeding in other products, such as cellphones.

My advice is to just try to accept it. The camera is fully usable even with a completely dead Top LCD. If so, one only need to operate the camera a little different. But I may perhaps be biased - I never look at the top LCD, ever :-)

Having used cameras without Top LCD display for half a century, I was so used to not having this that I never look at the Top even now when I have such things on my cameras!

As you know, modern electronic products are cheap to automatically mass produce, but repair of individual units is very time consuming and will often be more expensive than the after market sales value of the product. So if your A77 camera is working as it should in other respects, my advice is to not try to get it repaired.

Never seen it on my A77, though have seen it on other older film bodies.
Weird thing is that you say it sometimes looks like it's bleeding and then appears clear, usually bleeding is "fatal" and can't be reversed.
Could it be some kind of moisture forming underneath the clear plastic ontop of the LCD?

The top plate on the a77 is not a flat piece but a tapered piece of plastic and if you look at it at certain angles you'll see a distortion which could be mistaken for bleeding.
