Question about Sony KDF-E42A10 42 in. LCD Television

1 Answer

Vertical lines I have a KDF-42A10 that worked flawlessly for 3 1/2 years, turned it on one morning to watch the news and no picture. After a short time the oictur came up all vertical lines. I guess the B-Block is the problem and has to be replaced. Any idea on the cost to repair? Is the TV worth it? It has never even needed a bulb replaced so I guess that will be another repair it would need in the near future. Does the TV have any value as is? What is the best way to go if I replace it with a new one? LCD, Plasma, I have limited space to put the TV and don't even know if they make a plasma small enough.

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.

The picture has disappeared but the sound is working


Check the lamp first, especially if its the original. Also, observe the red LED on the front panel. It will often blink a code which can identify the problem.

Vertical color lines


I had the same thing happen to me this morning. I turned on the TV and it had colored vertical lines through the whole screen. I called Sony and they had me unplug the TV for about 15 minutes. This solved the problem. They said the boards just needed to be reset. It fixed the problem and I am happy with my Sony once again.
