Question about Sony Bravia KDL-46V4100 46 in. LCD HDTV

Open Question

Picture distortion upon startup

Upon startup, my Sony Bravia KDL-46V4100 46in. TV has color distortion and picture fade in the middle and the right hand side of the screen. After 10 or 15 minutes, this goes away and the picture is normal. Any thoughts on the cause of this problem. I have a 3yr warranty so I'm covered if it is something major. Thank you for your time.

    I appear to have a similar problem. Upon turning on the TV I get a distorted picture on the left side of the left-middle side of the screen. Essentially a flickering image with a few horizontal lines through the TV. After several minutes the picture clears. Has anyone had any answers or progress?

    This is an obvious defect in this set. I have similar problems.

In most cases is the screen is covered with vertical lines all the way accross the screen then the T-Con module is at fault. The t-con board is replaceable without having to replace the entire LCD panel which would usually make it cheaper than replacing the TV. The part number I come up with is 1-857-213-11. Please take a moment to rate my answer. Thanks...

I have the same tv with the same problem. My tv is about 3 1/2 years old. I took it to the shop yesterday and today they told me that I had a bad lcd panel and a bad FL1 circuit board. They also told me it was going to be $3800.00 dollars to fix. I am now on my way to buy another tv, needless to say it will not be a Sony. Sony knows about this problem and refuse to do anything about it. Good luck.

Buzzing/fizzing noise from back of sony flat screen tv


Below is an image of rear side of your TV, Sony KDL-40W5500
Top right corner is marked there and possible cause of noise seems back light inverter board, there are high voltage going to CCFL inside LCD panel and seems high voltage leakage causing that buzzing/ fuzzing noise.

Replace back light inverter board upon voltage leakage confirmation.
Thanks.
