W580i most of screen taken up by vertical and horizontal lines help. already reinstalled the sw from the sony media mgr

When i turn on my sony w580i there is one group of vertical lines on the left and 5 groups of horizontal lines going down from the top (the horizontal sets of lines differ in the quantity in each group). the teen piece of scree left is different colors and u really can't see text or menu items. i already went to the sony update site. i updated the sw, no luck there. i decided to re-install the sw from the sony site. once done i followed instr to disconnect, remove battery, replace battery and turn on. still have lines. i can catch more little menu letters but the horiz and vert lines are still there, the teeny screen piece is just a teeny bit better then it was before i "replaced" the software. or seems to be. what's up w the phone????

More than likely you will need to replace the display screen. Those lines are a symptom of the LCD screen going bad. If you are still under warranty, see if you can get it replaced

If not, a new LCD screen runs about 15 dollars shipped from eBay and is pretty easy to replace.

Check out the following link for instructions on replacing the LCD display and links to buy the screen.

More than likely you will need to replace the LCD screen. This is the start of the screen going bad. If you have it under warranty still, try to get it replaced.

If not, a new LCD screen runs about 15 dollars shipped from ebay2.gif.

The LCD on the Sony W580i is snap to replace.

6 horizontal lines


I would look for a Vertical circuit failure. Most likely is the vertical output IC and or open resistor off the hv transformer. Definitely look for any loose solder connections around the Vertical output IC.
Hope this helps,

Sony tv model no. KV - 19 APR 2


This is for a different model, but I had thin horizontal lines in red and had to adjust the tube for red. You may have a similar adjustment on your set.
