Question about Sony BRAVIA KDL-40S2000 40 in. LCD HDTV

1 Answer

Thin vertical line

My Sony Bravia XBR4 52" LCD Television developed a thin vertical green/red line varying 1-2 pixels wide which has been growing longer during the past 2 weeks.
The TV was purchased <18 months ago.
I called Sony about this problem 06/21/2009 and they are aware of this problem. My family is upset out this known manufactured defect.
Sony has scheduled a "at home repair" at thier expense. Hopefully they will stand behind their product and dependability. At the moment, I can not find this LCD TV dependable.

You are going to find it is a LCD panel problem. I am sure that they will take care of you. But also realize that this could have happen to any brand of LCD panel and you will probably not have any other panel issues once it is fixed.

My lcd television has developed a thin vertical line. It is on all the channels and comes and goes. We tried diconnecting and then reconnecting the satellite cable without change


Hello; If this line goes fully from top to bottom, You have a bad LCD panel. These lines can come and go. The fact that the line is thin , or one pixel wide, proves a bad LCD panel. If the line goes only part way down or up the screen, You likely have a cracked LCD panel ( never covered by warranty ) The LCD panel will cost more than the set sold for ! John

Permanent Vertical Line on my Sony Bravia 46 inch LCD TV


What you're describing is usually the result of an improperly seated connector. With the power disconnected, open the tv and locate any connectors between the LCD screen and the driver circuit board. Unplug them, and reconnect it assuring it's properly and firmly seated. Be careful when handling these cables as they tend to be quite fragile... take your time.

Sony Bravia KDL-40S2000 thin vertical line


If the line is present in all inputs and modes, there is a problem with the LCD Panel. The only way to fix it is to replace the whole LCD Panel which is very expensive (usually around $1000+ for 40" Sony). Unless the TV in under warranty, it is usually around the same price for a new TV.

I have a Sony Bravia KDL-32v2500, 16 months old, a thin vertical green line has appeared just off centre. It is on all channels and all input sources. Any suggestions?


If it still under warranty, no cost will be there, but if its out of warranty, you have to pay to Sony (might be they give you some discount) because its problem in LCD Panel.
