SONY 52" XBR5 Screen Damage

I have a new SONY 52" XBR5 with Screen Damage. A DVD case impacted the surface and now there is a long black vertical line and pixel damage at the impact location. Is there any way to repair and, if not, where do you recommend I get a replacement screen? I have heard that the replacement is priced higher than a new TV.

Thanks,
Howie

You are correct, the screen is damaged and in most cases cost mre than a replacement tv. There is no repairing a damaged LCD panel, just replacing.

Vertical line


Hello,

Most probably the vertical deflection amplifier is failing. The most common part that fails is the vertical output transistor.
The set is too old to find documentation on part numbers and descriptions. Probably the part is no longer available and you will need the assistance of someone who can help you find an equivalent transistor that will do the job.
Of course, without testing we cannot be certain the failure is the output transistor. It could be from something else such as the voltage regulator that feeds the dc line to the vertical section. Could be the vertical synchronous level that goes too low to trigger the vertical sweep generator.

Other bad parts in vertical deflection circuit though there are not that many parts that would kill the deflection entirely.

Loss of power to vertical deflection circuits. Check for blown fusable resistors/fuses and bad connections.

Loss of vertical oscillator or vertical drive signals
Good luck.

Hi my name is Roety,

If the line is present on all inputs, and effects the TV menu you most likely need a new screen.
You can try changing buffers, reseating cables.

My sony xbr5 flickers until warmed up


brennanrp, I hope you purchased a warranty on your TV. My 46 in xbr-5 was doing the same thing. I called the store I bought it from and they took it to a repair shop. The panel inside, basically the inner workings are faulty and Sony has put an extended warranty on it. Get it looked at as it will only get worse. Soon you will probably be seeing some vapor like images across the screen if you have not already. the lines starting showing up even after extended viewing times.

1" black vertical line in center of screen. Sony Plasma.


NOT DEFECTIVE!!!
There are 4 or 5 ribbon cables on the bottom or on one side, they control part of the plasma screen. Check the ribbon cable2_bing.gifnear the black lines. Unplug the ribbon cable and look for black chipson the underside of it, I think they say 100 on them, you need toresolder both ends on each chip. Should fix the black line issue.

3 year old threw drumstick, and hit the screen small spider web at impact point and vertical colored lines lenght of screen


Unfortunately he has damaged the screen, the only way to fix this is to have the screen replaced, this can cost almost the price of a new TV. If you have home contents insurance you could possible put in a claim for accidental damage.

Cracked frame on brand new sony bravia 52" HD LCD TV


I would definetly call Sony and if it is something you can't live with return it, but remember impact damage voids the warranty, in other words if you were to drop the tv trying to return it the warranty is void. As much as you paid for that tv it should be cosmeticly a functionaly perfect. Let me know if I can provide further assistance and please rate this solution. Lone99star
