Question about Sony 46IN TV Stand Designed for Model KP-46WT520

1 Answer

Sony 46" tv picture

My sony 46" has two faint shades of white areas along the bottom of the screen that apears or can be seen only when the bottom area of the screen is black. Could this be a defect and possibly cause problems in the future? The TV is only 2 months old.

    This is a flat screen LCD tv

    The tv is mounted on the wall there are no stand alone speakers or elec units near the tv. The tv built in speakers are located across the bottom of the tv, could they be causing the problem?

Is this a projection TV, or a flat screen model?

    It could be a magnetic field near the screen. Remove any speakers near the bottom to another location. You could have a magnetized steel strip along the bottom. You may need to neutralize this with a degaussing coil.

    Also it could be a sign of trouble to come. If the magnetic removal idea does not help, get warranty service before it runs out.

    Hi, tjyoung;
    Yes, it sure can. Are the white shadings directly above the speakers or one of the pairs of installed speakers?? (it might have separate pairs of woofers and tweeters built in).

How do i make picture fit screen? top and bottom of picture is missing

Some receivers have the ability to do this for you, for instance, all ViP and Hopper receivers from DISH can stretch or shrink the screen to fit. Most HDTvs also have this feature, independent of the type of input, using your TV remote find the button that says something along the lines of screen size, picture fit, stretch, aspect, etc. While watching a program that looks unlike the way you want it to, tap the button until the picture changes to the style you most prefer.

My screen has gone dull and lines have apeared in the screen iv tried display and then gone onto stability but no change the problem persists even when i turn it on and off to try and reset is there any...

Not sure if I understand your question. If the screen is a bunch of colors with some jagged lines it may have been cracked. I had mine for less than a week and dropped a clock on it. Not a happy camper. It can still be used for transport of video. I have an old sony monitor in my garage office. I load the AV700 from my computer and plug it into the monitor to watch videos in the garage.

Sony television problem

Do you have another TV that you can connect to the same cable in the same room? That will eleminate the cable. After that check to make sure that you have your tv set up for your area by setting it to either PAL or NTSC. After that, I would suspect your tuner, although I doubt it.
