    Would that mean replacing the GF2 board?

You're decoder is hosed! basically in lamens terms you need a new decoder driver board. These errors will be contenious until something is done on your part about it. There is no magic wand, and no geenie here you did all you can do you ran diagnostics and it came up with 68 errors meaning the decoder cannot draw anymore from the signal being pushed.

My sony kdl 46 turn on tv green light for few sec then stnby light flashes 2 times , what does that mean


I checked on the schematic, there is a self diagnostic mode for the tv accessed with the remote control. If the TV does not turn on I would highly recommend finding a local reputable service facility as this might be completely a fault inside the TV. https://www.encompassparts.com/shop/model_research_docs/?file=/SON/sm/KDL46V4100.pdf

Please check page 12 for self diagnostic procedure.

Three suggestions:

1. Try to hook cable direct without box to see if same problem---ie the box might cause this problem.

2. Check to see if it does it with DVD or when you change active inputs.
3. If number one contact cable provider as box may be your problem.

My sony bravia kdl-52xbr4 has a chip in it . looks like a little pellet hit the screen. how much will it cost to replace that screen?


Sadly, a replacement screen itself would cost more than the TV is worth.

Here are a couple of web sites selling the replacement screen:

I know it seems like a crazy price. But, TV manufactures buy a mass quantity at a lower price. Where buying just one screen panel cost an arm and a leg. Buying a new TV is the best choice money wise.

Slow picture and dark reddish tint


These sounds like you have an issue with main board or tcon. Picture slow makes me think this is a communication issue between the tcon and the main board.... This needs a professional diagnostic. The good news is i don't think it is the panel which would make the cost of repair beyond the cost of the tv. If it is in warranty or just out of warranty call sony, sometimes if it is just out of sony's 1 year warranty they will make exceptions. But you need to call them for this exception.
Some solutions are not cut and dried and an on-site diagnostic is best. In your case this is true. I have worked on sony for many years and that symptom (at least the way it is described) is not one I have seen.
