Question about Sony BRAVIA W-Series KDL-52W5100 52-Inch 1080p 120Hz LCD HDTV

1 Answer

I have a Sony Bravia KDL52W5100. When I turn on the tv sometimes everything is fine but other times there is no pic only rainbow stripes. I have to turn off and on the tv several times or unplug the tv to get a picture. I have tried rebooting the entire system it worked fine for couple of hours then the problem came back. Sometimes while I am watching a show the screen will gradually change into the rainbow stripe. Do I need to replace my screen and is it worth it?

    I am not very tech savvy. Do I have to take my flat screen down from the wall mount and take the back panel off to do this?

Check all the flat cable connections from T'Con board to panel, for loose connections. Re-seat them all.

SOURCE: Sony BRAVIA volume problem

I had this same issue, and solved it by putting the TV in "Theater Mode', which can be acheived by hitting the "Theater" button on the remote.

SOURCE: Sony KDL40S2010 Bravia LCD TV... turns off / on on it's own

If TV does not remain in standby and turns on itself then power switch on top of it could be defective and power supply board is also suspected. Take off its back cover and unplug top switch connector just to confirm is that cause of On-Off its own. If problem still exist then power supply board has problem and will be replaced. Let me know the results to move forward.

What causes colored stripes when playing commercial DVDs


Check your cables first to see if they are causing it. Faulty cables can cause all sorts of problems. If that doesn't solve it it could either be that the colour settings are wrong, for example NTSC instead of PAL or vice versa. Sometimes it is something to do with copy protection. In some cases counterfeit discs, or faulty discs. And in some cases a fault on the DVD player.

It was working fine then no picture dark sceen sound work fine


More information is required. Your backlight is lit (screen not dark) but I need to know what you have connected to the TV (your sources) and how they are connected. Does the menu/OSD (on screen display) work?

Sony Trinitron Color Rainbow


Usually when a tv is dropped the phospher screen inside the picture tube will detatch making the rainbow color This cannot be fixed as it requires changing the picture tube. Only other thing is demagnatize it with a demagnitizing coil (used by tv techs) but not likely to fix it since it was dropped. You have a bad picture tube.
