Question about Sony BRAVIA KLV-S40A10 40 in. HD-Ready LCD Television

3 Answers

I think my son broke my TV.....

I believe my son may have hit my screen with something, because the picture will not show up when I turn it on. There are lines all over the screen and a spot in the bottom left hand corner of the screen with "spider lines" coming out in all directions like it was hit. My question is, can this be fixed? The television is brand new and I have not had any other problems with it. I was stupid however, and did not purchase a warranty. Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thank you, Susan

    I have a Sony Bravia KDL-40V2500 that is almost 1 year old. My daughter hit the screen hard with her elbow and I've got the same thing; a mostly dark screen with a few vertical color lines, a circle of light where the impact occurred with spider lines. I'm not sure if its repairable either just searching now to see if it can be fixed.

You can have them repaired using a TV Repair guy but often it costs as much as a brand new plasma. My daughter broke my $1,600 LCD. It would have cost $1,200 to fix.. so I just bought a new one.After that I picked up a TV screen protector called TV Armor http://www.tv-armor.com Its designed to protect the TV from damage. Now I dont have to worry anymore when she is playing near it. It works really well.

Looking for a model E552VLE 55" vizio LCD HD Replacement screen . My son hit ours with a remote and broke it. Looks like lightening streak. Can u help?


Contact the authorized service centre for Vizio. A screen replacement will cost around 2/3rd of the total cost of a new TV; [price of the screen + Service charges]. Think more about it before do this repair work. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/

Son hit tv with ball no sound but....picture is fine


Perhaps you check all cables and connections. And look if all switches are in the correct position. He could heave accidentally have hit the mute button, or a button to switch to other speakers.

I almost can't believe something is defect inside the TV.

My son hit my lcd tv screen is it worth fixing it is made my priva


If it has no picture its probably not economical to fix, as the screen is the most expensive part of a flat panel......Might be able to find an exact tv like yours with a good screen but bad, say power board, or something on ebay, buy it, and swap your board into that tv.....cheaper than retail again....

Picture went off on rca flat screen while watching still have sou


That probably happened because something hit the TV and broke the line for pictures to get through, or because a wire in you TV is bad and doesn't wanna work. This happened to my TV every few days. What I did is give it a few whacks every now and then on top of it and the vision came back, but don't try that if you think your TV is fragile. Yes I know its sounds stereotypical but it actually sometimes works.

Well, good luck!

No Picture with sound


Make sure the setting on the av cable is for tv or hdtv, whatever type of tv your using. I hit that switch so many times, its a pain.

Still not working, disconnect all cables then reconnect.
