It sounds that the CCFL lamp at the lower part is faulty. The fault is with its back-light itself. Check it. If you wish to get more details about these type of faults to LCD TVs, check the site linked here. It has stap-shot illustrations to these type of fault to LCD TVs; which I cannot include here by this window. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/ Pull up previous posts there, either by type in the Brand name to your set in its search box, or view it in Mosaic / Timeslide / Flipcard option.

I just turned my tv off and then back on and it stoped. I read this is happening with all kinds of TVs....

SOURCE: The TV has horizontal lines across about 5 inches

Horizontal lines are relatively rare problem in LCD TVs.

The likely problematic areas are:

1) The LCD itself (the micro ICs embedded into the LCD panel structure); that doesn't sound likely based on what you say, but it's not completely impossible. The bad news is it's mostly uncurable.

2) The power board A-1511-322-D G5
Power boards may sometimes cause problems with display, although rarely causing horizontal lines.
I wouldn't start looking here either, but it is certainly a problem to consider.

3) Main board 1-876-561-13 R1506072C
Slightly more possible and yet not quite likely. A high operating temperature and bad SMD soldering process may cause some soldering contacts on the main board to behave differently when the board is cold versus when it heats up. It is very common and may have all kinds of different effects on the TV and the screen.
One way to check for that is with a regular dryer..the process is explained in many other solutions at fixya and around the net, so I wouldn't repeat it here...but it takes time and patience.

4) The most likely place to start with is the T-Con / LCD controller
404652ASNC6LV4.1 M139.

I'd first replace that and see if the problem goes away.

5) There's a very minor chance that the LVDS cable that connects the main board with the T-Con does not make good contact initially and changes that as a result of getting hot. It's easy to just touch and move it lightly when the TV is still cold to see if it has an effect on the picture.

Sorry I couldn't just nail it for you, but that's the nature of the repair businss :-)

Red line vertical


This is usually an indication that the power board has had an issue at one time or another. Does it fade a bit after the tv has been on for more than 10 minutes or so? This happened to my daughters LCD tv after I repaired the power board. The expense to replace a video driver board or an lcd panel is usually more expensive than the tv is worth unfortunately.

My Sony Bravia KDL-52XBR4 will power on but the screen stays black with no sound. What causes this?


Power supply regulator failure. The start voltage does not come to it from the main board. Check all connections that goes our from the power board to main board and vice versa; for any loose connection with its connecting sockets. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Viewing it in "Mosaic" or "Magazine" will make surf easy Pull up older posts. Surf the site with patience.

Check for loose contacts in power outlet, RC cable, jack and socket.

There are replacement screens available but I don't know if you'd be able to get an exact replacement for the broken one, but anyway they're expensive and you might as well just buy a new monitor.

My TV will play fine for 10-20 min. after that the screen will go blank.I have no problems with the sound.When I unplug the power cord for a few min. and plug it back in the TV works


Hi

Please remove the power cord of the TV, if it is connected to any power surge box and connect it directly to wall jack or wall outlet. Do not place any magnetic items nearby the TV. Do not completely cover the LCD with plastic cover or cloth.

This should resolve the issue.

My sony bravia kdl-52xbr4 has a chip in it . looks like a little pellet hit the screen. how much will it cost to replace that screen?


Sadly, a replacement screen itself would cost more than the TV is worth.

Here are a couple of web sites selling the replacement screen:

http://www.partstore.com/GetModel.aspx?MfgName=Sony&BrandName=Sony&ModelNumber=KDL52XBR4&SearchTerm=True&Page=1&SortBy=price&SortDirection=desc#PartsearchSKUList

http://www.encompassparts.com/products/?1-802-490-31

http://www.encompassparts.com/products/?1-802-490-32

I know it seems like a crazy price. But, TV manufactures buy a mass quantity at a lower price. Where buying just one screen panel cost an arm and a leg. Buying a new TV is the best choice money wise.
