SOURCE: Lines on tv screen

Both sound like bad LCD panels. The following must be answered to confirm this:
Do the lines appear on all inputs/all signal sources?
Can they be seen in the OSD/menu?
If yes to both questions, it is likely that the LCD panel is bad

SOURCE: Sony Bravia KDL 46", no picture, standby light blinks 4 times

Since the TV is still receiving power, the problem is going to be with the TV's mainboard.  After you unplugged the TV and plugged it back in, you said the power light went out again, so I assume the standby light wasn't flashing again?  The flashing standby light is indicating an error code so my suggestion is to contact Sony for service options regardless if there is a warranty or not because service is the only solution to this situation.  Don't forget to provide them the error code or 4 flashes repeating.

SOURCE: Sony kdl-46xbr4 Black Horizontal Bands When I First Turn on TV

I had the exact same problem with the Sony KDL46XBR4. The problem started 11 months after I purchased the TV (Dec 2007). Luckily I placed the call to Sony just before the 1 year warranty expired and they replaced the entire front panel which is basically the whole TV except for the stand and the plastic frame. Last month the same issue started happening again (5 months since the repair). I called Sony and they say they have a 90 day warranty on the replacement part so I would need to pay out of my own pocket to first have the problem diagnosed (it's the EXACT same problem!) and then pay to have the repair done since the warranty has expired. I asked how much the front panel costs and it's $1,400! I paid $2,100 for the TV when I purchased it. Interestingly, at the time that part was back-ordered.....hmmmm, I wonder why??? Perhaps a recall is warranted here (no pun intended). Needless to say, I have sworn off Sony products due to their lack of support for this issue.

Greetings, I get a perfectly good picture for about 20 minutes & then it clicks & turns off. I hit the power again & it will go on for less time and shorter and shorter time on until it stays...


Sounds like a component or 2 overheating and probably in the frame stage of the set. You would need the service manual to fix it and someone who is capable. The manual should be obtainable from sites such as www.mauritron.com The make and model would be needed to obtain it.

Horizontal black bar on screen and no sound


It's probably overheating (fan is broken)

You can get a third party to replace it if you want, but I would actually recommend sending it to Nintendo.

Unlike Sony and MS, Nintendo has awesome repair services. They will do any repair under (1 year) warranty for free and if it's not under warranty then they will still do it for cheap. It cost me something like $96 (in Canada) after shipping.

They are also very quick, usually in a week you'll have your system back.

The best part is, whether your system is under warranty or you pay for the repair, you get a renewed 1 YEAR warranty with Nintendo, this is far better than Sony and MS who only do 90 days!

look for trouble in the low voltage and or high voltage power supply circuits. the popping sound could be an exploded safety capacitor in the horizontal output to the flyback transformer. the horizontal output transistor maybe damaged. chances are the low voltage regulator is also damaged.

No picture no sound


Did you mean the picture is collapsed only in the middle horizontally(white line appears on the middle part of the screen)?
If that is the case, maybe vertical IC failed or loose connection.

Black horizontal lines


Sounds as if you have a bad capacitor in the horizontal deflection or video circuitry. You can spot a bad capacitor in circuit with a ESR meter.Hope this helps.
