Question about Sony KDF-E55A20 55 in. LCD Television

1 Answer

SONY KDL 40 X3000 - Sound but no picture

Half screen started to go dark red/darker, then came back to normal. Now if switched on it has a shakey/ghosty picture followed a few seconds later by a dark screen.

The TV is ex-display, we've had it for two weeks, but still it did not do this at the start.

We have had satellite connection for the last week. I have checked the leads, tried the on/off technique - it is bizarre!

Appreciate any help!

Does it do this with other input devices? Sounds like a electrical surge.

Most likely this is caused by a defective main board. Changing the main board will fix the issue about 95% of the time.

To be absolutely sure, the voltages need to be checked on the power supply. If they are not the values listed in the service manual, then you should replace the power supply instead (accounts for the other 5% of the time).

Why is sony bravia dark screen


If your TV seems to be darker than you think it should be, it is possible that the problem is with the light sensor. The light sensor will automatically adjust the picture brightness based on the ambient light that is in the room, (i.e. if the room is bright the picture will also be bright, if it is dark the picture will also be dark).

To turn this feature off go to Settings > General Setup > Light Sensor.

Sony 52 inch bravia picture went dark


Hate to give you some bad news...But most likely you have a defective screen. You may be lucky and just have a bad T-con board. Which will do the same thing. But, this is a slim chance of it being the issue. As I have had many of these with bad screens. And only 2 were the T-con board which the color was off and pict was darker than normal. It is the board at the top center of the TV.

Sony bravia kdl-40s2010 top half of screen is fading


Most sets use two boards (each drives the image on half the screen) some combine both into a single larger board but if a even half of the screen is doing something the other half is not that is where the problem likely is.

Different makers use different names for this like T-Con or Y out etc.

You if interested might Google the model number with "parts" which may provide you a list of the boards in this set along with prices in some cases.

My Sony model KDL-40S4100 is dark. I have a picture and can see whats going on, but the screen is just not bright. I'm thinking that its the backlight, but how can I tell for sure??


The only way to tell if a backlight (if set has one) is bad is to measure the voltage on the power board and at the back light itself---most voltages are marked on power board or a Service Manual would pinpoint them.

If the voltages are normal and back light is on but DIM only option would be to replace the board that drives it or the actual back lights'

If you Google the model number with "parts" you should be able to locate the back the parts involved.

Upper half of screen is darker than the lower half


Hi,
Its back light in LCD Panel problem, there are approx 20 CCFLs in 40" lcd panel and one or two in upper half is not providing enough light to give proper brightness so you see bit darker image.
As per Sony policy, lcd panel will be replaced to fix this issue and local tech can fix it on component level (replacing bad ccfl) if he/she agrees because its risky work.
Hope this nfo will help you.
