Grey transparent vertical band centre of screen

As mentioned above, i have recently experienced a transparent vertical band that is much duller than the rest of the screen. it is about 2 inches wide. it appeared earlier today. i tapped the keyboard in the top right hand corner when i wasnt looking and the band appeared. whether this is just coincidence i have no idea. i have no idea why this has happened....its very frustrating. Please help!

I have also experienced the same problem on two occasions, but my Sony TV KDLV3000 has actually been backwards and forwards on three occasions to be repaired. I have had a new control unit and will be having a second screen replacement shortlymad.gif. I have contacted my local Sony Centre and they have stated that they will only replace the TV if there are THREE IDENTICAL faultsfacepalm.gif.

COME ON SONY CENTRE GET YOUR ACT TOGETHER AND TAKE A NOTE FROM JOHN LEWIS THERE CUSTOMER CARE IS SECOND TO NONE.

Not sure I'll buy a Sony again after this experience having been a loyal Sony customer for a number of years, will probably look at a Samsung or LG next time.

Transparent blue band


THIS IS MOST LIKELY TERMINAL. YOU NEED A NEW PANNEL. YOU CAN TRY TO TAKE OFF THE BACK COVER AND RESEAT ALL THE RIBBON CABLES THAT GO TO THE PANNEL. IF THIS DOSEN'T FIX IT, BUY A NEW TV.

Your new LCD is faulty. The band on your old one is the end of it I am affraid.
Laptop LCD's although built to take a beating (or so it seems) are extremely fragile. It only take a very small drop to end their lives.

Grey vertical line appears on screen


I had the same problem with my Lnt4071f. I called tech support and they said it was a faulty panel and the entire set had to be replaced. If you have your warrantly still use it, if not you may just be able to replace the panel, but its expensive.

Black horizontal lines across bottom 1/3 of screen


This is due to vertical section failure. Change the vertical supply rectifier diode and supply filters. Then check zener diode leakage in pumpup circuit section. Also check any electrolytic capacitors leakage in vertical section. If it is old model tv change vertical height, vertical lenearity presets also. I hope given details useful to you.
