SOURCE: How to improve picture quality?

are you using an hd source ? hd cable box, satelitte receiver or antenna with the digital channels programmed in. regular tv channels will not look as good as the picture you saw in the store when you bought it. they all use only high definition signals.

SOURCE: How to improve picture quality sharpness?

PICTURE QUALITY IS USUALLY A FUNTION OF IT'S SOURCE. GARBAGE IN GARBAGE OUT.
IF YOU HAVE COMCAST OR SATELLITE AND IT IS NOT HD, YOU NEED TO HAVE AN HD SIGNAL FOR THE BEST PICTURE. THE BEST INPUT IS THRU THE HDMI INPUT. IF YOUR UNIT HAS A GOOD PICTURE WITH YOUR DVD UNIT, THEN THE HAVE A SIGNAL SOURCE ISSUE.

SOURCE: The TV has horizontal lines across about 5 inches

Horizontal lines are relatively rare problem in LCD TVs.

The likely problematic areas are:

1) The LCD itself (the micro ICs embedded into the LCD panel structure); that doesn't sound likely based on what you say, but it's not completely impossible. The bad news is it's mostly uncurable.

2) The power board A-1511-322-D G5
Power boards may sometimes cause problems with display, although rarely causing horizontal lines.
I wouldn't start looking here either, but it is certainly a problem to consider.

3) Main board 1-876-561-13 R1506072C
Slightly more possible and yet not quite likely. A high operating temperature and bad SMD soldering process may cause some soldering contacts on the main board to behave differently when the board is cold versus when it heats up. It is very common and may have all kinds of different effects on the TV and the screen.
One way to check for that is with a regular dryer..the process is explained in many other solutions at fixya and around the net, so I wouldn't repeat it here...but it takes time and patience.

4) The most likely place to start with is the T-Con / LCD controller
404652ASNC6LV4.1 M139.

I'd first replace that and see if the problem goes away.

5) There's a very minor chance that the LVDS cable that connects the main board with the T-Con does not make good contact initially and changes that as a result of getting hot. It's easy to just touch and move it lightly when the TV is still cold to see if it has an effect on the picture.

Sorry I couldn't just nail it for you, but that's the nature of the repair businss :-)

SOURCE: sony bravia kdl 46s4100 no picture

it sounds like your back light might be going out. You might be able to fix this by installing a new backlight inverter board.

Check the fuses on the power board. there is one fuse on primary side and one on secondary side.
Take of back panel and follow plug into the tv.where it ends is the power board.always use caution.the capacitors in there hold high voltage even after unplugged for a couple of days.Discharge capacitors before servicing the board.

Sony bravia 22EX320 reboots and blink 8 times


These blinks [flashes] are fault indication (Error Codes). From the number of blinks occur at one time switch ON, you can get an idea about the faulty circuit stage inside it. This will make repair easy. These are called blinking codes. Make sure about the exact number of blinking of the standby/power LED, by switching On & OFF the set, for at least two times. Count it carefully. If you wish to get some details, check the site linked here. It has details about blinking codes, and fault locating procedure, to many popular brand TVs and other devices. Viewing it in "Mosaic" or "Magazine" will make surf easy.

My Sony Bravia KDL-52V5100 has garbked sound or no sound intermittently throughout viewing. This happens on multiple HDMI inputs through both my upconvert dvd player and the HD cable box. It is corrected...


I'm seeing the same issue. Only thing I've seen is a firmware update but according to my Bravia, I am already running the current firmware.
Was considering doing the update anyway...re-installing it so-to-speak.
Having trouble finding any other resolutions online.

We lose audio on our Sony BRAVIA KDL-52W4100


This problem appears to be an issue with numerous Sony Bravia owners of the same model. Although still seeking a soulution, it would appear that our cable provider (Verizon) has replaced all of their components and the Geek Squad from Best Buy where we purchased the unit, points the finger at Verizon. None of our other Fios-equipped TV's exhibit this problem so I am glad we bought the service plan with the TV and will continue to seek a remedy.
