Sony Bravia KDL 40S20L1

I have a sony bravia KDL 40S20L1 40" that was purchased less than a year ago from Costco. The screen now has a thin line down the middle from top to bottom . What would cause this? there is no scratch on the outer shell it is internal in the picture.

Thanks

    it sounds like a bad panel. If it is visible in the on screen display and the menue it is most likely the panel.

You should have a 1 year warranty from Sony. Call them before it expires. This is probably a LCD panel issue.

52" Sony Bravia TV has a thin Blue line down left


A line on an LCD screen can be cause by the screen itself going bad or the T-con board. The T-con board the attached to the screen on the backside and covered by a heatshield. If you get teh part number from it you can find it online from one of the many retails that might have it. Like www.interliquidparts.com

I own a 5 year old 40" sony bravia lcd tv, When


This sounds like what I managed to do to my screen, even though I knew better. Is there any chance you layed the screen face down at some time?

Even though you can still watch it OK, you probably have hairline fractures in the screen face (NOT the screen itself- be thankful for that- the cracks are in the screen coating). LCD screens are a very thin glass laminate with a thin protective glass-like coating. When they are laid flat (like I did to connect cables) if the screen bears any weight, microcracks develop on the front of the screen.

I am sorry to say that the effect is permanent.

Thin vertical red line


This maybe the symptom of a bad Panel. One Vertically This line is 99% bad panel. Call your warranty provider or SONY tech support if purchased under 2 years.

Sony Bravia XBR 40" LCD


First, HORIZONTAL CENTER.
1) Press MENU.
2) Scroll to SETTINGS.
3) Scroll to SCREEN.
4) Go to HORIZONTAL CENTER. Move the picture to the right. Hopefully, the line will go away. Otherwise, there is a problem with the pixels or the signal processor. Call 1-800-222-SONY. Or, http://eservice.sony.com. Have a high-limit credit card handy for out of warranty repairs. Sorry about that.
