KLV-S40A10 Hi, My Sony TV, bought 2 1/2 years ago for 3000 $ just died the same way you described your's did. The Sony autorised reparator tels me over the phone that the four times blinking power light means a repair of 983 $, and my tv store tels me that this model is now worth new 1000 $. Did you finaly could repair your tv for a cheaper price, or did you have to scrap it. I had my lesson, I will never pay big bucks again for a good brand, trying to buy peace of mind. Regards, Ju

My TV was a bit newer than yours but the backlight was blown and the repair estimate was $2300 Cdn. After I caught my breath from laughing, I dialed Sony customer care. In my opinion, they needed to stand by their very expensive product because I bought Sony for a reason, and this wasn't it. Fortunately they shared my opinion. Dealing with them was a delight. They were both sympathetic and responsive. They offered me a couple of their newer 40" models at greatly reduced prices and I accepted the better grade one. They shipped it to me for free. I am now the proud owner of their 2008 KDL40V4100, which was $1799 on their web site, and it is stunning. Truly. The improvements that Sony has made to their sets since the time I bought mine was well worth the $1000 I paid to get the replacement, AND they threw in 2 extra years warranty. This is one of the reasons you buy the name. Never hesitate to politely call up and express concern about a product. Companies want to encourage brand loyalty and I for one will never hesitate to buy Sony again.  Good luck!

On my Sony Bravia KLV-S40A TV I have a message "VIDEO 1". How do I get it off the screen?


On the original SONY remote press display to remove that---if left on long enough it will actually burn that image into the screen--button on almost any Sony Tv remote will remove or clear it.

We have a Sony Bravia lcd tv model KLV-S40A10 - no power


Hi,the problem is from the fuse in the tv,it's blown and it's a means of in-built security against power fluctuations from damaging the unit,so the solution is to replace the fuse of the TV to restore your unit back to a normal working condition.

Be cool.

Sony Bravia KVL-V40A10 - pixelated lines top and bottom of screen


Are these lines visible regardless of what device (DVD player, cable box) you are watching?  If so, then yes, it appears the LCD panel is failing.  If you only see the lines watching one device, it could be the cable/wire or the device itself.  Now it can also be the related input jacks too so connect the device to another input to be sure.

It was working fine then no picture dark sceen sound work fine


More information is required. Your backlight is lit (screen not dark) but I need to know what you have connected to the TV (your sources) and how they are connected. Does the menu/OSD (on screen display) work?

KLV 40S200A


If you watch how many times the light flashes and then relay that to your local authorized sony repair centre they will tell you what is likely wrong with the TV. Have you unplugged, left for a couple of minutes and re-plugged?

Bravia KLV-S40A10 HDMI input


I agree with your solution and you are correct in that you lose very little quality by using component instead of HDMI. there are A/V receivers that transcode HDMI inputs to component; as far as I know that's the only other option

Closed caption


There are external close caption boxes that you can add to your system. But be aware: many cable boxes do not process the close captioning information "through", forcing you to use the close captioning on the cable box.
