Sony bravia internet tv has a pink horizontal band across the screen

If the line is Horizontal then you deffinantly have a cable issue, replace the cable and that should do it, if it continues the problem could be in the port itself, if using HDMI switch to VGA or composite to test this theory. please keep me posted.

Pink/Blue horizontal line on TV

Considering it is a 32 inch set and costs now under 300 dollars it may or may not be worth fixing.

To give an educated guess: either whatever it uses for an inverter board may be bad or damaged OR even the main board that processes all signal into or out to the screen may have either a bad connection(unlikely but possible) or be causing this.

A fatal issue could be something wrong in the screen unit (panel) itself.

I gather set is not under any warranty at this time.

Horizontal pale blue lines on LCD screen and even on picture

Hey Ma-ya,
Most of the time horizontal lines are a result of taking photographs in very bright situations. If you are seeing horizontal lines on the LCD screen and in your images in low light situations this is most likely digital noise. Two ways that could fix this problem are turning the noise reduction on, and/or making sure your flash is turned on and your subject is within the range of your flash. Another cause of digital noise is having your iso set too high (I never shoot over 400 iso). I hope this helps!

Go Ahead. Use Us.

Pink or grey horizontal lines on video download or viewing

I have the same issue and have for over a year (haven't had the time to send it to Canon for a few weeks to analyze, but have cleaned it numerous times). But I can tell you that the problem is internittent and the recordings are fine. Eventually, don't know the remedy, but it will suddenly stop doing that and I can download fine, and watch on camera fine. When it does happen, I just keep recording. It never shows up permanently. I re-tyr downloading or viewing and about the 3rd or 3th time (let it sit for a few hours between) it is normal!

Shooting mode will not operate

Your camera has a defective CCD imager. Please return the camera to Canon in New Jersey and they will replace the CCD at no charge to you. This is a known issue and should be covered under extended warranty. Good luck my friend. Joe Weibel
