Question about Sony KDF-E42A10 42 in. LCD Television

1 Answer

Red, horizontal color bar along bottom of screen


Here's a picture of the problem, it's always there. I put a channel with snow to make it easier to see the red stripe. Just started in the last few days, doesn't matter if I have a DVD input or cable. The stripe is about 1" thick. The rest of the picture looks sharp and bright, so I'm thinking it's not a lamp problem.

Tried to call Sony, they said to unplug the TV 5 minutes and plug it back in to the wall (no power strip). I tried that, had no effect.

Any help would be great!

This is a failure within the optics block. The optics block will have to be replaced. Contact Sony and complain and they will most likely refer you to an auth. service center and I know they will work with you on the cost of repair. I have had experience with Sony paying from 100% to 75% for this repair.

Hi.

A digital TV handles the color in three channels, red green and blue. Your TV has a problem on the red channel. That causes pictures getting yellowish. The computer functions can compensate the fault, but that is not a solution. If the problem happens on every input and also with internal tuner, then the logic circuits that elaborate video signal are defective. The main board is usually replaced to fix the problem. Before replacing the main digital board the technician can check if any repairable fault is found. A contact in one of the input for example may short the circuit affecting one of the color channels. In that case the tech will only need to resolder the connector on board to fix the problem. More commonly the whole board must be replaced.

I cant keep the picture at full screen fom channel to channel


The reason for this is that the incoming signal is not always the same. Stations broadcast in different formats from 480i to 1080. If the bars top and bottom or side to side bother you then you'll have to stretch the picture (try different modes) to keep the picture screen full.

Dark picture on RCA Scenium 61 in DLP


Yes, the lamp will gradually get darker as it nears it's end. The rolling lines sounds more like the set is on a local channel for the cable hook up. If your local area has a channel 3 or 4 live terestrial broadcast simply tune the cable box output to the other one, the same for the tv.
If this is cable/local broadcast issue it will go away in Febuary when the NTSC broadcast ends.

Red bar across top of screen??


I had the same horizontal, solid red bar along the top of the tv screen. I have an older analog Philips Magnavox TP2785C221. It just started all of a sudden. It was on every channel. However, the bar did not appear on the other input channels (e.g., AV1, AV2). So this meant that the red bar was only occurring on the antenna input. I unplugged my cable decoder box and restarted it. The red bar went away and that seemed to solve the problem for now.
