    The problem we have is not one but several thin red lines that just appeared today. Depending on what is showing, the lines change to green.

    I have a Sony xbr4 that developed a thin vertical red line, that seems to be increasing in size over the last 2 days. Also just a couple of weeks out of 1 year warranty. When the tv is off, you can still see the line behind the glass. I am very sad.

    The redline on the Sony TV, mine is the same. Sony service, I contacted. Remove the power from the TV for 1 minute, they suggested.

    The TV since I talked, no redline. Off and on it appears. Power removal, try, I have not. I will update if it goes away after the power removal.

Bad panel.
I don't know how many flats I've seen with this and it's usually about 12-18 months this occures. It's like they're watching tv and get a soda pop, come back and it's there.

Way to fix this....always buy the extended warranty or buy from location that offers an extra year for free like some of the big box stores.

This maybe the symptom of a bad Panel. One Vertically This line is 99% bad panel. Call your warranty provider or SONY tech support if purchased under 2 years.

Sony bravia kdl-46w4100 moving vertical lines


Check the main filter capacitors at its power regulator board. Replace if found bulged or damaged. Replace all secondary side supply rails' filter capacitors too. The fault is with damaged electrolytic capacitors at the power regulator board itself.

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.

My Sony bravia 40" LCD has developed a thin vertical line to the left center of screen. how to fix?


other than a software upgrade. it probably a graphics chip malfunction and will need replacement.

These can be replaced but costly. Does it do the same if you use screen as a pc monitor?

Thin vertical line


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.
