Question about Sony Bravia KDL-42V4100 42 in. LCD TV

1 Answer

Every 30 sec I loose audio, 5 more sec and my screen goes black, instant reset then the cycle starts again

I had the direct tv guys put in a HD box. The tv was fine for the rest of the night. I power down and then turn it on in the morning. Now, every 30 seconds the audio goes out follwed by another 5 second delay then the whole screen goes black and instantly brings the picture and audio back. Like it is reseting over and over again. This happens on tv mode and when I ran my blue ray blayer it did the same thing leading me to believe the direct tv guys are not the problem. My TV is a Sony Bravia model: KDL-42v4100

HELP!!! Its like 2 months old!

My picture display is narrow and does not cover the screen.


Does the Genie box have screen settings in in? Sometimes hd will show in smaller screens. Makes the picture nicer. If you adjust the screen size with your remote the high definition "niceness" will not be there.

Picture goes black with gray fuzzy lines ~ 1/2" apart horizontal.


If your LCD TV or monitor has stopped working, or is displaying one of the following
symptoms, then it's a candidate for some new capacitors
- Flickering screen
- Screen image disappears after several seconds
- Dim screen
- Slow start
- Power LED on, but no picture
- Unusual colors and/or lines
The primary cause of LCD TV and monitor failure is caused by faulty capacitors. You can
examine the capacitors in your LCD TV or monitor and actually see if they are bad.
If they appear bulged on top, then they need to be replaced.
New capacitors will solve a host of problems in LCD monitors and TV's and will extend the life
of your monitor or TV by several years.
Take it to a repair shop.

Picture goes blank but audio on


If you are using component cables to connect your HD box to TV. Make sure your connections are tight. You should make the colors match up. Green, Red, Blue. Check on both TV and HD box. Make sure HD pox is powered on. Make sure to select TV input to Component 1 or whichever you are using. If this doesn't work you may need to call and have COX refresh the HD box. This can be done over the phone. This will make sure you are receiving and sending the proper signal level. Good luck

LG 47" LCD FLAT SCREEN


IF IT WASNT DIGITAL HD I WOULD HAVE SUSPECTED HIGH VOLTAGE POWER SUPPLY BUT THAT DOES NOT EXIST HERE.
Well, not completely true; the fluorescent backlight is still a high voltage device, even if only hundreds of volts instead of kilovolts, and either the lamp(s) or the power supply for it (them) is causing the dropout of your picture. When it does it next time, look at the screen from various angles, I think you will see that video content is still there.
