Question about Televison & Video

2 Answers

The TV is almost 2 years old and beyond warranty. The lines have sharp edhes and some are thick and some are thin. The show up as soldi colors matching the colors of what ever was on that channel at that time. The only workaround is to switch off the TV and turn it back ON. This happens in less than 15 mins from startup if watching HD channel or playing a game on PS3. Sometimes, when watching non-HD channels, it doesn't happen for over 1 hour. But,once it starts happening, it gets more and more frequent. At times, the frequency being less than a minute. Is this repairable at a reasonable cost? I had purchased it for $1200 (msot expensive 32" in the market at that time)...

    Just to add my HDTV is Sony KDL 32XBR4. I would like to get another expert's opinion on my problem.

    FYI, my model is Sony KDL 32XBR4. If that helps? Does it sound like a common problem to fix at reasonable cost or does it seem like an expensive fix?

You have a video ground loop. This may be caused by a ground problem in your cable system. Since you get this line on other sources ie DVD disconnect the RF cable wire from your TV or cablebox when on that other source and see if it goes away. If it does call your CABLE PROIVDER and they should be able to fix it. If they don't you need to get a ground loop isolator or in line surge protector. This goes in between the RF cable and the cable input of your cable box or TV. Try www.centronics.com model 634 if the cable co. won't take care of it.

Sanyo flat screen tv about 2 yrs old has thin colored horizontal lines down the right side


Nothing you can do about that...get used to it or change the TV.
It's a defect in the panel that can't be reliably fixed.

Sony 40 inch lcd television


Call Sony!! It Will get worse!!! The panel has ribbons that have fine wires that are used to show each line of information on the screen. Either the panel is going or the wires are loose. Either way, the panel needs replacing. Just hope to God it's under warranty or if not, sony will help you out with a buy-out.

Line accross top of the screen with flashing black and white boxes


Thin white dashes on top of screen is PERFECTLY NORMAL. It is nothing wrong with the TV, it is the broadcast. What you are seeing is the very bottom of the timecode running. It doesn't happen all of the time or all channels. It usually happens with old 4:3 commercials predating "Digital TV." This is mentioned in your Users Manual. You should be able to adjust the horizontal/vertical position in the menu settings.
