Question about Sony Bravia KDL-40S4100 40 in. LCD TV

1 Answer

No Picture on TV when Power is on

I have the SONY BRAVIA KDL-40s4100 and it has been working great since I bought it 4-5 weeks ago. This past weekend I turned the TV on and the Power Light came on but the screen never appeared. I did the factory reset and still no picture or any screen appears despite the power being on. Does anyone have any suggestions or ideas of what is wrong.

    The Standby Light does not seem to blinking at all actually, in fact it is not even lit up. And no there is no sound.

    I have a Sony Bravia KDL 40V2500 LCD TV which is about 1 year old.

    It has been working perfectly until one day last week when I turned it on the audio was there but NO picture. I tried unplugging and replugging everthing to no avail. The Sony rep said she has never heard of this kind of problem but there are several postings that say differently. I now have to absorb the cost of a service visit as well as any repairs to the unit. I certainly will not endorse any Sony products after this.

This seet should provide some diagnostic help. The standby light should be blinking a repeated count with a pause. Post that count here. Also, is there sound?

The above info will indicate the problem circuit which will then suggest the remedy.

Thanks,
Dan

SOURCE: SONY BRAVIA KDL-40s4100 is not working right

Please check whether the connections are secured between the TV and the connected devices.

If the television is plugged into a power strip or surge protector, remove it from the power strip or surge protector and plug it directly into the wall outlet. If the issue is resolved, the problem is with the power strip or surge protector and not the television.

Try connecting the TV to a different wall outlet and check if that helps.

Please connect a different device to the TV and check whether the issue persists.

If the issue still persists service of the TV is determined.

I have a Sony WEGA KDE-42XS955 that takes 5 minutes for the picture to appear. Once it appears..works great! If I just leave it turned for it will work fine. Any idea what board needs to be replaced?


The main power supply regulator section circuit fault. Either it will be a separate board, or the part of main board. Check and replace damaged component/s at its main power regulator [SMPS] section circuit. Contact any service technician. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Pull up older posts. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/ It will be best to replace the power supply regulator board as card basis rather than making "Surgery" to it; which usually will make loss for both money and time. Even though you can make it right, it will cost around an amount equal to the cost of a new board; including the cost of (spare parts + service charge) More to say, most of the spare parts to it will be difficult to get from open electronic spare part market. This is true to most of the flat panel TV power supply boards; irrespective of its brand and screen size.

Check whether the audio is muted by accidental press at remote control button. Enter its sound menu, and check it. If muted, as you know there will be no audio output. If not muted, Check the speaker/s. If found OK; check and replace the damaged component/s at its audio output section circuit board. If needy, replace this board as card basis.

My lg plasma tv is cutting off the edges of the shows we are watching. I cant find a setting that will take care of it. Can you help


hmm normally these settings are found in the picture settings of the set top box or just a setting in the tv's picture settings now there might be an option to say fill screen that may work best for some or leave the tv in 16:9 some broadcasts may only be in 4:3 at times this is normal broadcasting and not much can be done unless the setting on the picture option is set to fill screen

Sony Bravia flat screen TV when turned on has black screen. Green light on the bottom is lite up, electric plug is plugged into house socket, no picture only black screen.


If audio is OK, the fault is with its backlight section. If audio too is absent, the fault is with its digital main board. If you wish to get more details visit the site linked here. Pull up older posts.
