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.

Re: Green screen with sound from cable, but picture is...
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.

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, http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/ Pull up older posts.
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. http://www.shopjimmy.com/catalogsearch/result/index/?q=KDL-40S2000&p=1
If you have the money to spend, then I would upgrade to 1080p. It's better than 720p. Pictures comes in even more clear.
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 Partstore.com. 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 nexttronics.com
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. :)
