Question about Sony Bravia KDL-40S4100 40 in. LCD TV

1 Answer

Left half screen freezed

Hi there, I'm having this problems with my TV. What happen is that after an hour of being turned on it freeze the left half of the screen showing vertical lines of different colors. I read on the internet that this could be a problem with the T-Con Board, almost all the forums agreed with that so I decide to buy this board and replace it, but unfortunately it didn't work, I replaced it and turn the TV on and it happen as usual. I contact sony by chat but the person who was helping me actually wasn't a person but a machine and the solution that it proposed me was very unhelpful (told me to turn my TV off and wait 60 second to turn it on again). So given this, I wonder if you can help me anyway, I'm very frustrated with this problem, I can't even watch TV because of this. Thank you very much for the help

This type of fault can occur with a faulty ribbon cable [LVDS]; that connects to T'Con to display panel. Check it too. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here.Viewing it in "Mosaic" will make surf easy.

SOURCE: vertical flickering color lines instead of pictures

Soory man there is no deflection yoke or vertical output IC in a plasma TV set.LOL This person has a problem with whats called the substain power supply or bad caoacitors in the main supply. there is also a possibility that the set has a bad tuner. Only performing test on the set will determine the problem.

The panel or TCON board has failed, the solution is the same replace the panel. Not worth the cost, get a new TV

SOURCE: different color vertical lines on screen Sony KDF-E55A20

Go to the last page of troubleshooting in the manual and perform the system reset procedure. Basically hold the Wega "arrow up" as you manually switch the TV off. It will automatically switch back on and reset. I had only vertical colored lines on the screen, with audio but no response to any remote control functions. The rest worked perfectly.

Hello,

Here is what happening . This has nothing to do with you having it on while you stepped out for a few hours. The unit needs to be cleaned/ filters/screens/fins/coils. This problem would of happened even if you were in the trailer as it was running. The issue is after a while, sense it needs to be cleaned it loads up and then starts to freeze and then once it starts to freeze coils etc... it then starts only blowing warm air. When you turned it off, and let it set for a while, reason it started working again, is because the ice that built up defrosted some to have unit operate proper again. Solution is to clean the unit good. Thanks Mike from fixya.

Left door open, closed next day, but only blowing cool air now


You will need to turn the unit off and let it completely unthaw. There is frost that builds up in the ducts and behind the panels when the door is left open that will cause the unit to not cool or circulate where needed.

For resolving your Nokia N900 problem, I recommend a firmware replacement to reinstall the system software. Once these devices start acting silly, this is generally the way to fix them.

Two or more things, first make sure you have your audio vidio cables correct

Your model has a maximum resolution of 720p. What you might want to do is make sure that both your cable/sat box and game stations are outputting at no more than 720 resolution. It's easy to assume that all HDTVs may accept a higher signal, and while they might, some of the scene changes or handshakes may make that operation cause the symptoms you describe.
