Splotchy blacks My Dad has a Sony flat screen Bravia in the S- series I think. The problem is that often times the blacks will appear kind of splotchy. Is this an inherent problem with 1080i or could the cables be the problem?

Adjust the "Vivid" setting and Contrast settings on the setup menu until you get a black that you like. The screen may look too dark during daylight hours if you set the black too dark (like when you watch movies in total darkness). Also, it's your dads TV and his eyes may not be as sharp as yours. Ask him if the screen is too dark for his eyes after you set it.

The fault is with its main power regulator section circuit itself. Check all the electrolytic capacitors there. Replace them. Replace the main filter capacitor too.

Sony Bravia LCD TV. There's a horizontal black line appearing just below the center of the screen. Have observed it's getting longer.


it may be the display panel especially if the line is black.

Some tests are needed and maybe a board swapped etc but if it turns out to be the Panel the part costs more than the set did when new===fatal.

Half the screen is black


I think its either the X-sus or Y-Sus Boards which control the display. These are 2 boards with heatsinks on them, lots of capacitors and are at either edge of the screen.
