Sony Bravia LCD 40" XBR2- Sound, but no picture; solid bright green screen

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!

Christian

my klv 40s400a is about 8 months old, put it on this morning and no picture, just perfectly crisp and clear sound.

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.

It sounds that the panel is faulty. A plain green screen denotes it. If you're sound in electronics, and wish to get more details, check this link. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/ Selecting the view option, either to Mosaic / Flip card, can be selected by the drop-down list, at the top left of the display window, will make surf easy. You can also do a search, by type in the brand name/model number/IC used, in the search box at the top right of the display window. Defective screen shots to LCD TVs are given by illustrations. You can compare it to that of your TVs' and can make confirm.

Green screen with sound from cable, but picture is fine with Wii


That would be my solution. The trouble is either in the box or your connecting cables. Verify this by connecting the cable directly to the set. Then try a new set of connecting cables, or call the cable provider to replace the box.

If you can bring up the TV menu, it's probably the video board. If the won't come up, it could be the LVDS cable or the LCD panel. Either way I recommend a qualified service tech take care of this.

Sony Bravia LCD 40" XBR2- Sound, but no picture; solid bright green screen


It is possible that the lamp is bad, but do not do anything other than post the exact model number here. With that, I can get you directions on what and how to repair the set hopefully. The model number should start with K.
Thanks,
