Question about Sony KV-36XBR450 36" TV

1 Answer

Half a picture

After several months of sitting, I recently relocated this tv (no drops) to another location, but now have only the bottom 2/3 of the picture on the top 1/2 of the screen.There also seems to be a bit of a squeeze of the picture towards the center of the tube. I tried several different inputs i.e. DVD via s-video and off air tv through the coax input.The color and display seem to be okay, just shifted. There doesn't seen to be a knob for the horizontal hold. Suggestions?

Dont use the set and call a service tech,you might have loose conections in the horizontal circuit,if you keep using it for this problem it might become worst.

Replace lower scan converter PCB, which plugged into Y-Sustainer Board, located to the left of the display if you poke back cover open. There are 2 of them, but in some models might be the one, long PCB.don't wait to fix it! otherwise, you will knock out Y-
Sustainer and upper scan converter. That will cause you to spend few hundreds to fix it.

Black screen of death - DP42746


I am a military spouse and our same tv did the same thing on Super Bowl Sunday 2009! We did everything we know to do: call the company, called the repair man, etc. There apparently isn't a solution to this that wouldn't cost more than the tv is worth. So I got an attorney to start a class action:

If you would like to be compensated for your TV please contact me @

Danimimozi@gmail.com


There are no fees or anything to do so.

Screen Problem


hi....Your tv picture is managed by several boards, the two specific ones are the ysus and the xsus. The Y controlls the horizontal pixelation and the X the verticle, if you are having horizontal problems then its the Ysus thats faulty, on this particular set, the Ysus board has two accompaning buffers that are particularly troublesome. I've had more than one of these sets in the shop recently with the same ailment.Sounds like your buffers are starting to go out. The screen is split horizontally by the two long skinny buffers attatched to the Y main, if the bottom one has one leg in the grave you'll be getting a partially black screen or no picture at all. The colored lines running through the screen are more typical of a failing buffer. Are you interested in taking this set apart and putting a couple hundred into fixing it?  When buffers go they usually take the Y main too. Worse case scenario you're gonna be out about $350 dollars to fix it yourself. Best case, a ribbon is loose on the bottom buffer and with a dismantle you'll be able to connect it again..

thank u rate me!!

The picture on my tv is too big


Take the remote for the TV...not the cable.
They usually have a RESET button.  Go through setting the TV back to factory settings.  This usually corrects this problem.

I had the same problem before. I had my wireless router really close to the tv. I relocated the router, and the problem never came back.
