Question about Sony BRAVIA KDL-46S2000 46 in. LCD HDTV
I have just purchased a sony KDL 40W5500. Prior to this we had a 32" one which was fine but we wanted a bigger one as room is quite large. The picture is pixelating and fuzzy both on analogue and Sky. When on Blue Ray it is brillient. What can I do have purchased gold cable etc checked wiring & aerial wires. Am at wits end. I even believed it could be TV fault and had it changed but of course it was not.
I Install Sky on a Daily Basis When you start getting pixels on your sky it is normally The sky dish that needs re-alligning as the weather/ window cleaner or something has moved it.
You mentioned Buying GOLD plated. They are a waste of money. The back of your telly is Alley and so is the box so you would see no benefit buying installing a gold plated scart / HDMI lead. there two different metals altogether. curry / comet etc are sale people all they want is your £££
Its a shame you did not live in Newcastle. I could have sorted this out for you.

You will need to have an outdoor aerial installed, the signal area you're now living in will not be a strong enough reception for an indoor aerial no matter how good or expensive. You could try the indoor aerial in different positions around the room especially by a window to try & pick up some other channels but the long term this will cause some of the programmes to break up or freeze. An aerial on the roof or in the attic will be your best solution to pick up all the digital channels on freeview.

NOOOOOO, do not buy a new one. Your problem , if you fixed it my way yourself, would only cost you around$3.00 to $5.00....
The caps (capacitors) in the powerboard are going out. This is a very common problem in all class and price ranges of modern lcd and plasma tv's/ monitor's. I don't know if this problem has been like this for awhile or it just started, but either way, if the tv takes an abnormal amount of time to "warm" up then it most likely will go out all the way sometime in the (near) future. If you have a tiny bit of will and knowledge ypou can open the unit and get to the print board. Examine this for "popped" capacitors, they will have a buldging top instead of a flat one. Im gonna try to include a pic of them here, if i can get it this time, I've tried bfore lol. But you can google image a "popped" or "bad" capacitor and you would be able, with ease, to diagnose if you have any of these. Usually only one or two. Radioshack sells capacitors (couple anyway) for $1.59 each. MAKE SURE the replacement is of the SAME voltage or HIGHER, or you will be right back replacing those 2. Every capacitor has a negative pole marked with an (-) on the side of the capacitor(by one of the "legs", always puit the negative (-) "leg" of the new capacitor in the same hole in the printboard as where the previous negative (-) "leg" of the capacitor was ( a capacitor with the negative and positive "legs" put in backwards will result in the new piece "popping" as sson as you turn it on!!) make sure the "uf" rating (for example the most common popped capacitor is the 1000 uf) is the same as the one you are replacing. I needed 1000 uf, 105 c and 26v (volt) ratings for the 1 capacitor I needed to replace to fix my LG 19" lcd panel monitor I found by the trash that the light came on off, but it didn't come on. I replaced that capacitor with ; 1000uf, 85 c and 36 v (volts0...It works fine eventhough the volts and the temperature rating (36v and 85c) was not the same as the (26v(volt) and 105c ) capacitor I removed !! Further, I've replaced capacitors that had the celcius rating of 105 with the only ones Radioshack had, namely 85 c(celsius) they have been working great, but I'm not sure about any effect, nor have I heard or read (yet?) about that making an urgent difference. Many threads that I've read people have done the same, so we should be ok (my stuff has been running good for a while longer then most brand new ones!.............(all these ratings ; 'uf ' and 'c' etc are on the side of the capacitor you are replacing and on the side of the ones you are replacing them with)...For all this all you need is the cheapest solder gun u can find (I bought one for $7.99 at Radioshack), a camera (to take pictures as you go to remember how to reassemble the unit) and, once you have your materials, 20 minutes to replace 2 or 3 capacitors and you are good to go...Most monitors and tvs (lcd/plasma) I've seen you have to lay flat on the ground/bed/blanket etc, to work on (screen side down). Usually there are 2 or 3 screws (or a few more) to remove, then you will have to carefully (its comes off easily most times)insert a flat screwdriver inbetween the casing and gently pry it up as you go around the whole frame. Sometimes you have to remove the little washer arouind the cable input orso, just be gentle and you cant go wrong. Once insidet here will be a box with wires running to the sides etc...unplug, gently, these wires and open the box. Inside you will find 2 or 3 circuitboards, check them all for "popped" capacitors, replace, reassemble and plug it in....Have fun becoming an overnight tv mechanic lol!
If this has helped you (or not) , then please rate!

SOURCE: problems with sony bravia lcd
We had this trouble with our sony bravia, had to get a repair man in to look at it and the digital tuner within the tv went cost $180.00 to have a new digit tuner put in.

SOURCE: I have my Sony flatscreen
From the looks of it the tuner seems to be malfunctioning. You are able to get picture through your DVD recorder because the signal is directly fed to the audio/video proecessing circuits , when you connect via the HDMI, Component or RCA ports at the back of the tv. Since this mode of connection also ensures better quality signal I suggest that you continue using it as this problem can only be resolved by replacing the main A/V board on which the tuner is located. The board costs about 100-125$ and is not very hard to replace. So if you wish to replace it, then let me know and I will give you the detailed instructions along with the link to the part.
P.S: Bad Rating = No further help.
