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.
