Question about Sony Bravia KDL-46V4100 46 in. LCD HDTV

1 Answer

The picture went out on our sony bravia lcd

We just got a 46inch sony bravia lcd flatscreen not even a month ago (we are renting to own it and when we got it from rent a center they told us that only one person had rented it before and only had it for a month so it was basically brand new) today i was watching tv and i went to give my son something and when i looked back at the tv the picture kinda just went black theres audio and you can tell the screens on but its black and i thought maybe it was just the satilite but when i went to change the channel it doesnt show me the menu so i know its the tv and i tried unplugging it for 30 mins i cant find the reset button on it casue its up on a stand and im short and we have turned it off for about 12 hours now and i just turned it on and it still doesnt work. so my question is am i screwed or is there a way i can fix it at home so rent a center doesnt charge me for fixing it.

If the unit is less than a year old, it should still be under warranty through the rental center. The inverter has failed. This is what supplies the light behind the panel. This is a relatively common failure and is easily fixed by a service center. Call the rental center for instructions on what to do. This is not a failure than can be caused by misuse. You should not be at fault here.

    Dan I'm glad that you posted this answer because my mom was just worrying about the same thing. She Is looking to get a new bigger TV but has been concerned about the small lights going out and having to replace them. She's also renting to own the TV so I'm assuming it should be the same for her.

If you can bring up the TV menu, it's probably the video board. If the won't come up, it could be the LVDS cable or the LCD panel. Either way I recommend a qualified service tech take care of this.

Are you connected to a cable box or satalite rcvr using compoment outputs (y,pr,pb)? It is posible that the red cable has come loose and picture has no red,causing a mostly blue picture.
