Question about Sony BRAVIA KDL-46S2000 46 in. LCD HDTV

Sony Bravia KDL-40V2500

I have a Bravia KDL-40V2500 that was purchased in March 2007. After it was about a year year old (jut out of warranty) the left half of the picture will blur with vertical streaks about once a week. After turning it off then back on, the left half of the screen is solid white. If I leave it off overnight it will come back on and may work for another week, then while watching it will do it again. Sometimes after this has happened it will clear back up while watching. It is just the left half of the screen just like you had drawn a line vetically down the middle of the screen. Any suggestions?

    Thank you for the TCON board suggestion.

    Fortunately I have an extended warranty on the TV, however it will not quit when I want it to so that the repair company can see what is happening. I will pass along your suggestion to the repairman. Hopefully it quit completely so the problem can be found.

    Glad you have the extended warranty. Go easy on the tech, as they are not allowed to just replace parts without actually seeing the problem, especially in the case where a very expensive part (like an LCD panel) is involved. I could be more sure of my diagnosis with a picture of the problem. There is a small chance it could be a video process problem, but usually that will not affect half the screen as you have described. God luck in getting your repairs done, I hope it works out for you.

I have a Bravia KDL-52w4500. Over the last month I have started to get more and more horizontal line across the screen. These do not go away. What can I do to fix this

unfortunatly, horizontal lines on an lcd tv, almost always mean a bad lcd panel. if it is out of warranty, it will be really cost prohibitive to replace the panel. if the set is only a year old or so call sony customer support and ask for a concession for the part.

I have a blue line going up the center of the screen. The t.v is less than a year old.

I would get it repaired under the manufacturers warranty and not bother with trying to repair it yourself.

Exact problem

This is an internal malfunction, deffinately use the warranty on it. If you decide to fix it yourself post again and I'll walk you through changing the LCD controller. Its not too challenging, but will require you to dismantle almost the entire tv.

Sony Bravia KDL-40W4500 turns off

This can indicate a problem with the high voltage circuits. Since this is a new set, it should still be under warranty. DO NOT open up the unit as that will void the warranty. Return the set or request warranty service. Note the 8 blinks when you request service as that should allow them to bring the correct replacement parts.

Keep us posted.

Have a new Sony Bravia KDL-40W500 keeps turning off into standby mode with 8 flashes.


There is some confusion on the model (KDL-40W500 vs. KDL-40V2500), so I will direct this toward the 40V2500.

On the KDL-40V2500, an 8X blink means the scan processer has gone bad, and the BU board needs to be replaced. If the problem is intermittent, the the AU board might be the problem, but if it all the time, bank on the BU.

A competent repair shop should be able to help you, or you can try calling Sony directly for assitance.

Hope this helps you...
