Hello. Your symptom indicates that the LCD panel needs to be replaced. This is a costly fix. Please get an estimate before you have the work done and compare the repair cost to the cost of a replacement. If this Sony is over 3 years old, I do not recommend a repair. Your problem has plagued Sony incidentally. Joe

Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. From what you have described it seems that you might have a backlight and/or an inverter board issue with this TV set. It could also be due to the inverter circuits for the backlights. The inverter is the power supply source for the backlights. There could also be a screen driver problem; if it is then you have to change the entire inverter board. All this is only recommended if you have some kind of expertise for checking the internal circuitry of the TV as these units have high voltages running even when the set is switched off. The cost to change the inverter board including labor would be around $250, if you get this done by a professional. Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.


Thanks
Rylee

Our sony brava 52inch flat screen tv 2007 model has a red 4 inch vertical line on the left side of the tv what is the cause?


This is an internal problem with the screen itself, caused either by the connector from the "Inverter" board to the screen or as in most cases a problem within the internal workings of the screen. In most cases the only cure is to have the screen replaced which can be very costly. As it is 3 years old it is probably just outwith the manufacturers warranty for the screen & therefore would not cover the cost of a replacement. Nowadays it is can be more economical to buy a new TV altogether I'm afraid.
