This is called a dark shading error. All the LCD consumer sets have some visible degree of this effect. Some will be a little less or more than others even from the same batch in the assembly run. This has to do with the optical design quality of how the back-plane lamps illuminate the screen. The design and assembly tollerance of this area is very critical.

Normally, LCD screens don't show their best picture in a darkened room. The very black regions of the picture content may look a little washed out. LCD screens are best watched in a room that is lit, but not very bright. You have to consider that there is a powerful set of lights behind the polarized panel of the LCD display, and there will always be some breakthrough of light.

If you want a TV that is more like a CRT in its characteristics a Plasma would have been a good choice. The trade-off with the Plasma is that it does not have the picture sharpness of the LCD. A Plasma set is best watched in a darkened room.

If you have an LCD computer monitor, take a look at it in a dark room with a black screen. You will most likely see the dark shading errors. Only the very expensive production studio type LCD monitors have less of this error than the consumer sets, and they are not absolutely perfect.

The television just went black then slowly faded to white starting at the right side of the screen, what happened? now it wont work at all and fades from black to white like i described every time it is...


in examining your question here about going from black to white with no picture at all would thorw the backlight and inverters out of the question. Things to check here:

1. Decoder board
2. LCD panel itself

I have seen where a lcd whent dark because of a back light. but from dark to light and no picture leads me to beleave you have a bad lcd .

I hope this gives you some idea your going to need to have a repair shop fix it ether way or buy a new tv in this case. I do not see this as a common problem in sony bravia lines.
