Question about Sony BRAVIA KDL-40S2000 40 in. LCD HDTV

Sony Bravia KDL-40S2000 thin vertical line

My Sony LCD TV also just started showing a thin green vertical line, slightly left of center. Sony tech support was unable to help with the standard troubleshooting and recommended a maintenance/repair company. I expect this to be an expensive repair. Anyone have any experience with the cost or solution to this problem?

If the line is present in all inputs and modes, there is a problem with the LCD Panel. The only way to fix it is to replace the whole LCD Panel which is very expensive (usually around $1000+ for 40" Sony). Unless the TV in under warranty, it is usually around the same price for a new TV.

Testimonial: "Thanks for the response. The service company Sony recommended told me it was probably the screen, too, and they quoted $1000."

Line thru screen


The LCD Panel must be replaced to fix both problems. The cost in doing this would exceed the value of the set. I recommend not putting the money into it.

A fine green vertical line displayed on the Sony Bravia 46.


Thats a pixel data problem, there's no data being sent to that row of pixels so they don't change color. This is a pixel address registry (PAR) issue and the PAR circuits need to be serviced its usually due to open or shorted SMT components on the PAR circuits. PAR also sends data, voltage, and control to each pixel, the green line you see are pixels that have voltage but because there's no data sent too them their all green because there's no control. If the pixels have voltage but no data or control they show up as green red, blue, yellow, or whit line vertically down the LCD panel. The vertical-horizontal section of PAR are controlled by 16 to 32 bit micro-controllers which may need replacing. If its under warranty take it back if not have your local repair center fix the tv for you...

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.
I feel your pain,

Thin vertical red line


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 XBR 40" LCD


First, HORIZONTAL CENTER.
1) Press MENU.
2) Scroll to SETTINGS.
3) Scroll to SCREEN.
4) Go to HORIZONTAL CENTER. Move the picture to the right. Hopefully, the line will go away. Otherwise, there is a problem with the pixels or the signal processor. Call 1-800-222-SONY. Or, http://eservice.sony.com. Have a high-limit credit card handy for out of warranty repairs. Sorry about that.
