Question about Sony Televison & Video
I have had my Sony LCD Flatscreen for barely over a year now (didn't get the extended warranty because I figured...this much for a t.v., it should last at least 5 years) now I'm screwed. I tried to turn it on the other day and there was no picture. I immediately thought it was my satellite system, but it wasn't. I just tried to turn on the t.v. without anything else and the menu wouldn't even come up. After a couple of minutes the blank black screen that it shows at first turns to a solid bright green.
If the satellite or anything else is on you can hear the sound, but the picture will not display. I called Sony and they guided me through some troubleshooting tips, but nothing worked. They said it would have to be repaired.
After looking on this site for a while I have seen similar problems, but couldn't find an exact issue with this t.v. I'm guessing the lamp is bad and needs to be replaced.
Does this sound like the lamp? And if so, where would it be located and how can I replace it?
Thanks in advance!
my klv 40s400a is about 8 months old, put it on this morning and no picture, just perfectly crisp and clear sound.
Same thing just happened to me, all blue screen with lines, could hear tv and could change cable channels but couvldnt see past the blue screen. I unplugged the tv for 2 minutes and it worked when I plugged it back in ! Just hope that works the next time it happens!

Sorry about your issue, however, LCD's do not have a lamp, they have a back light but the chances that is bad is a million to one. I strongly recommend taking it in for an evaluation. I understand your feelings that it should last 5 years or so, however I see every brand, a year or two old with these types of issues. The day's of no problems for 5 yrs up to 20 are definitely over. This is technology at it's finest.
