Question about Sony KDF-E42A10 42 in. LCD Television

1 Answer

Sony KDF-E42A10 The TV's light comes on when you power up, but there is no sound, and the screen only displays a bunch of colored vertical lines. Any idea on what this might be? I'm pretty good at fixing stuff, and I have the service manual for this TV.

    Multicolored lines in front of picture. If no video source all you get are the lines.

    I have the same issue only i have the Sony KDF-55E200. The tv is only a year old, problem occurs intermittently. When powering on, the flashing green light flickers on and off for about a minute, then the black screen turns into a bunch of multicoloured vertical lines. You cannot change video inputs or channels, only can turn off. Ive tried unplugging the power source, this fixes the problem sometimes. Ive unplugged all the input cables such as hdmi and component cables, this didnt work. There is a clicking sound when you unplug power and replug. Not sure waht else to do from this point apart from having some repair guy come in which i dont really want as the problem occurs intermittently. A little help please anyone?

Green line running vertically along the edge of picture


If its a LCD projection TV (such as Sony Wega, Hitachi, Epson, Philips, and some Panasonic, some Mitsubishi), and the green image is in the whole screen or just one part as a blob or a line. Is most probably that one of your LCD Color Filters is damaged (burned out or starting to get busted), I don’t know if you can just replace the color filter, I believe you need to change the whole light engine system or the optical block. There are some places around, I found some on ebay but you should definitely try on discountdashmerchantdotcom their price range $260.00 - $330.00
