Different color vertical lines on screen Sony KDF-E55A20


Go to the last page of troubleshooting in the manual and perform the system reset procedure. Basically hold the Wega "arrow up" as you manually switch the TV off. It will automatically switch back on and reset. I had only vertical colored lines on the screen, with audio but no response to any remote control functions. The rest worked perfectly.

Black 3" vertical line through the center of my Plasma TV


Sounds to me like one of the drivers for the display died. Typically this requires a replacement of the entire panel (expensive) but I'd check with your local repair shop

Ilo problem


What I hear you saying is that your main television tuner shows lines only while the PIP is functioning properly. The PIP works by using a separate tuner from the main tuner of your television (like a vcr tuner). Since the PIP works then it appears that your main tv tuner is not working anymore. It will probably have to be replaced. I recommend looking at our online technician list for a professional near you.

Good luck :)

Vertical color lines


I had the same thing happen to me this morning. I turned on the TV and it had colored vertical lines through the whole screen. I called Sony and they had me unplug the TV for about 15 minutes. This solved the problem. They said the boards just needed to be reset. It fixed the problem and I am happy with my Sony once again.

Vertical colored lines on top and bottom of screen


Definately a video processing problem and it may need a logic board it is called. Does the set work fine if you feed component into set to bypass all that? Let me know. GURU JAY
