I have a 46" Sony Bravia. Approx 5 years old. Screen was replaced a couple years ago under Target extended warranty. Now the center of the screen is black. Audio is fine and you can see the picture about 6 inches on each side. It started out having a lot of shadows when you turned it on but they would eventually go away..now this. Any ideas

SOURCE: Moved Sony Bravia TV, now will not turn on at all

The warranty on this set should be for 1 year. Return it for warranty service. Unless the set was dropped, moving it should not have effected anything. DO NOT open the set sas that would void the warranty.

This also happened to me and may continue to get worse... If it goes away for a while after warming up, then it is the same problem... The LCD panel is probably going out, when that happens the cost to repair it is more than the tv is worth... If it is in warranty then you can have it replaced or fixed.

SOURCE: Permanent Vertical Line on my Sony Bravia 46 inch LCD TV

What you're describing is usually the result of an improperly seated connector. With the power disconnected, open the tv and locate any connectors between the LCD screen and the driver circuit board. Unplug them, and reconnect it assuring it's properly and firmly seated. Be careful when handling these cables as they tend to be quite fragile... take your time.

My kdl46z4100 has vertical black line on the screen


Unless it is spot on dead center of the set, you need to replace the LCD panel. In these models, the suspected TCON (time control) board might do the trick, but I've yet to have success with that board fixing a vertical line issue.

Hopefully you are still under manufacturer's warranty or have some kind of extended warranty, 'cause the price of that panel exceeds $1,500.00.

You could give a shout to Sony customer relations in the event you don't have a way to get the part paid for. Sony may ask that you pay for an estimate, in return for covering the part for you.

I have the same issue. Bought the TV 1/08 and it started showing those exact symptoms about 3-4 months ago. It generally progresses and gets worse. You can try to fix it as it's some kind of TAB connector issue, or keep calling Sony so that the 52" owners of the XBR4 and 5 series get the extended warranty just like the 46" owners received for the same series. If enough of us keep calling, they'll have to act.

I have a problem with my Sony Bravia. The screen is cut in half with a fine black line. The top section is the picture that continuely rolls and bottom section is lines of colors. It is 9 months old.


Depending where you got it It's probably still under warranty.I know Bestbuy usually offers 1 year free.My tv had red lines running through it and they said it was something to do with a climate part that they did not have so I was sent to pick out a new Tv.Good luck

Flickering screen


Two models of the 46 inch Sony Bravia have a screen flicker problem. On my 2008 model, starting from cold, it lasts for 5-10 min, on LHS of screen. The Telefix tech who visited said this is common with these models (46in only), a new panel is needed. Sony provides warranty on this fault for 3 yrs, so you do not need extended warranty to claim. Discuss your case with Sony or Telefix.
