Green screen with sound from cable, but picture is fine with Wii

Bravia KDL-40S2000, has worked great for one year and 2 weeks (of course we had a one year warranty). Turned on today to watch TV (cable) and picture is solid green. Audio fine. Wii is fine, Menu is fine...just no TV picture.
Where do we start?

    cable box for digital and HD. Actually we think it's the HDMI cable. We are using RGB cables and RCA for audio now and it's fine. But our cable is screwed channel guide or DVR. We no longer think it's the TV ... unless it is the HDMI input port and not just the cable. HD, DVR or surround sound now...but we're going to get a new HDMI cable and see if that fixes it.

    Are you using a cable box to the set, or does the cable connect direct to the TV?

That would be my solution. The trouble is either in the box or your connecting cables. Verify this by connecting the cable directly to the set. Then try a new set of connecting cables, or call the cable provider to replace the box.

How do i repair Sony Bravia KDL screen? screen comes on but half doesn't refresh, it smears the picture. after 30 minutes (warmup), i turn the screen off and on and it works. How do I fix it?

It sounds like the LVDS cable [the flat cable that connects its T'Con board to display panel] have loose contact. Re-set this cable at both ends, and check. If you wish to get some details, Pull up older posts.

Same problem KDL-40S2000, no picture on any input, but do get sound. Picture glows when powered on and if I tap the back or sides I get white flashes on the screen, but nothing shows on the screen.

I would replace the bulb.Sounds like it maybe bad,I would try to reseat the bulb then if that doesn't work then replace it.Do any of the power buttons flash when you turn it on?

Sony Bravia KDL-40S2000. I have 2 identical tv's one has a bad board and won't display any image, the other has a bad panel, I bought it like that never saw it working before it was cracked. I get power,...

Try this for an isolation test:

1. plug in a source (DVD player, cable, etc--something you know can provide constant sound)

2. turn on the set and jack the volume up. Just mash the volume button for about 5 seconds.

3. cycle through the inputs and listen for sound. If you have sound, most likely it is NOT the BU/Main baord.

If you don't hear sound, and you have a complete loss of: PICTURE, SOUND, ON SCREEN DISPLAY, then yes, you probably will benefit by replacing the Main board.

Please replace the LVDS cable too.

Have sound but no picture not even the menu

If money is an issue, then it's worth fixing. You'll need a repair shop to tell you which electronic board is bad. I'm thinking it maybe the backlight inverter board or the power supply board.
Here's a website for parts so you can get an idea of how much it costs for each part.
If you have the money to spend, then I would upgrade to 1080p. It's better than 720p. Pictures comes in even more clear.

I have a sony bravia televison, screens cracked

Over here in southern California, Wii controller get thrown at the TV. Same kid problems.
Well, there is no way to fix the screen itself, only replacing the screen.
The part# for your lcd screen is 180205911.
I got that part# through They had screens for that model KDL-40S2000, but the cheapest is $1,850. That doesn't make sense to me.
So, I googled the part# "180205911". Only one place has it is
List price $1200, but the sale price is $650.

I googled the model# "KDL-40S200" and then clicked on "shopping". One place called SONY STYLE is selling the TV for $599.95
It maybe better and cheaper to get a new TV from them.

I hope I answered your questions correctly. Please rate me. :)

You should have a 1 year warranty from Sony. Call them before it expires. This is probably a LCD panel issue.

Sony Bravia - picture don't fit the screen

I have a Scientific Atlanta cable box w/ Time Warner. I followed the instructions below for the cable box. Somehow it reset my picture and I can now read the ticker at the bottom of the screen and the different picture sizes seem to work properly. Good Luck.
