Pixelation and banding on sony lcd tv

New sony kdl 40s3000 seems to show large pixelation on reg channels, and what I call a Banding effect, or layering of the solid mostly dark colors in conjunction with the large pixels. Not evident whn playing dvds. and not much on HDTV channels though it is there. Have tried hdmi n component cables with same results. hve not found any reviews on this model with this problem so wondering if it may be related to Time Warner cable lines.

    I'm experiencing the same pixelation isues with my recently purchased KDL-40V3000 40" Sony Bravia. I was considering replacing my Comcast HDTV box, or returning the TV because it's driving me nuts.

Changing this requires a change of the tuner. There is nothing inside the set that can make this change. There are external systems that can do this, but they are expensive (multiple $100s).

Bottom line is that this would require a change in the internals of the set.
Hope this helps.

There is a component(s) in the video processor path, or in the screen address matrix that has become thermo sensitive. This can be service by someone who is familiar with and has the tools and set-up to service your model of set.

I would suggest to call Sony service to arrange to take it in for an estimate. Because of the complexity of servicing this set, they may give an estimate to exchange the defective board(s).

The cost of servicing your set when out of warranty will not be cheap.

Bravia & Sky+HD, aspect problem


There is nothing wrong with you Sony Bravia TV and it suppport all HD and SD formats.

Are you viewing the HD version of the channel when it is showing a standard defination show. e.g SKY1 HD instead of SKY1.

This means that regular standard defination shows are in a 4:3 ratio and does not fill the whole screen. In order to view these type of shows you will need to tune to regular channel instead of the HD version.

You can check if a show is brocast in HD by going into the tv guide and checking for the HD symbol in the programme symposis.
