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

  • tjyoung Feb 17, 2008

    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).

It is under warranty, have it check before warranty runs out ASAP because you do not want to have something else goes wrong either.

Unfortunately the Optical Engine will need to be replaced to fix the problem. It is a very costly repair. Most of these Optical Blocks run around 800.00 for the part it self and labor will vary between 180.00 and 270.00.
You could try to call Sony at 1800-222-SONY
and see if they could help out with the cost.
I hope this helps,

Sony 60" LCD projection TV has yellow screen discoloration


It sounds like you have a bad Blue Polarizer in the light path. I'm sorry but that is something you will have to contact a service center for. It's not something you'll be able to do yourself, I'm sorry, but that's the best advice I can give you.

White corners SONY KDL52XBR6


This is called a dark shading error. All the LCD consumer sets have some visible degree of this effect. Some will be a little less or more than others even from the same batch in the assembly run. This has to do with the optical design quality of how the back-plane lamps illuminate the screen. The design and assembly tollerance of this area is very critical.

Normally, LCD screens don't show their best picture in a darkened room. The very black regions of the picture content may look a little washed out. LCD screens are best watched in a room that is lit, but not very bright. You have to consider that there is a powerful set of lights behind the polarized panel of the LCD display, and there will always be some breakthrough of light.

If you want a TV that is more like a CRT in its characteristics a Plasma would have been a good choice. The trade-off with the Plasma is that it does not have the picture sharpness of the LCD. A Plasma set is best watched in a darkened room.

If you have an LCD computer monitor, take a look at it in a dark room with a black screen. You will most likely see the dark shading errors. Only the very expensive production studio type LCD monitors have less of this error than the consumer sets, and they are not absolutely perfect.

Sony 60" LCD projection TV has yellow screen discoloration


I would suggest to try to get this TV fix while still under warranty. Normally the manufacturers give one year.
In regards to the discoloration, there is not much you do but to let the Sony authorized repair center knows about it so they can fix it. Ask them if their work is guarantee as well for how long.
Good Luck.
