Question about Sony KDL-50R550A 50" LED TV 1920x1080, 240 Hz, HDTV, 3D

Open Question

Sony KDL-50R550A LCD TV: The bottom 65% of the screen drops by about 1/8" and becomes blurred. This lasts for about 2 seconds after which the image returns to normal for about 2 seconds.

It occurs rhythmically regardless of whether the TV has just been turned on or whether it is warmed up. It is also independent of Input selected. What board could be causing this?

http://forum.ecoustics.com/bbs/messages/2/176039.html <-- Check that out.

Also I have a Sony Bravia and it clicks while it is on as well. I read that forum and some people said to disconnect the cable box for 10 sec. and then some said it was the heat from the summer.. i don't know.. I just turned my tv off and then back on and it stoped. I read this is happening with all kinds of TVs....

Not really that tough. Sounds as though the backlight is shutting down, either from a power supply failure, or a failure of the backlight circuit itself. You can verify this by holding a flashlight to the screen in the area where the menu usually appears to see if it displayed on the LCD panel with no backlight. If you can faintly see the menu displayed, your backlight has shut down and the most likely cause is the backlight inverter board, followed by the power supply and the backlights themselves which are part of the LCD panel. If you found this information answered your questions, please be sure to rate it. Thanks!

This also happened to me and may continue to get worse... If it goes away for a while after warming up, then it is the same problem... The LCD panel is probably going out, when that happens the cost to repair it is more than the tv is worth... If it is in warranty then you can have it replaced or fixed.

Do you have a manual I can print off?


Sony has the manual for the KDL-50R550A on the product support site: https://esupport.sony.com/US/p/model-home.pl?mdl=KDL50R550A&template_id=1®ion_id=1&tab=manuals#/manualsTab . Look in the left hand column under Manuals for the Operating Instructions; if you don't see that heading, click on the Manuals, Specs & Warranty tab. The current direct link to this manual is https://docs.sony.com/release//KDL-R520A_R550A.pdf . You should be able to print the file from Adobe Reader or a similar program.

I hope this helps.

BRAVIA KDL-52XBR4 PARTIAL IMAGE DELAY


Three suggestions:

1. Try to hook cable direct without box to see if same problem---ie the box might cause this problem.

2. Check to see if it does it with DVD or when you change active inputs.
3. If number one contact cable provider as box may be your problem.

Kdl32 m3000 white vertical lines through the 'sony" image on power-up and moving images are blurred or leave a "trail". Colors are wrong.


Hi,
I'm afraid, it is problem of LCD Panel (screen) and it is very expensive part, replacement would cost you more then new tv price.
I'm sorry for breaking this news but have to say facts about problem.
Hope this will help.
Thanks.

Guys, any suggestion for for this blurred down one side??? it happen evert day on my Sony TV. Can you please advise


if the video looks like it is dark on the one side and you can see image retention(ghost image of previous image after picture changes) and all inputs and menus are distorted then you most likely have an LCD panel failure and when it comes to repair unless you were able to get warranty coverage the repair would not be economical due to the cost of the LCD panel. i suggest contacting sony customer support for possible repair accomodation 1(800)222-7669

I have a sony Bravia KDL-52W3000 LCD tv. Approx.


I have the same tv with the same problem. My tv is about 3 1/2 years old. I took it to the shop yesterday and today they told me that I had a bad lcd panel and a bad FL1 circuit board. They also told me it was going to be $3800.00 dollars to fix. I am now on my way to buy another tv, needless to say it will not be a Sony. Sony knows about this problem and refuse to do anything about it. Good luck.

Image on 'normal' setting isn't using full height of tv screen.


What you will need to do is grab your remote that came with the tv - click "Menu">select "Settings">go down to "Screen" and make sure that:

1. Wide Mode reads "Full"
2. Auto Wide reads "On"
3. Display Area reads "Full Pixel"

Hope that helps.
