    My problem is almost like yours. The top half of the screen/picture appears dim, and the picture itself seems to be flickering. My TV is nearly two years old. Help!

This is a backlight problem, possibly the cold flourescent lamp at the top of the LCD display panel or (less likely) a bad inverter board. To prevent further damage to the TV, I suggest you not turn it on until it's fixed. You may be able to find CCFL replacement tubes on line, but I can't say the job will be easy and you won't notice possible backlight inconsistancies. If the CCFL wires are long enough to swap, you could move them to each others connector and see if the problem moves to the bottom of the screen. If it moves the lamp is bad. If the problem stays on the top it's the most likely the inverter.

When I switch my tv to the HDMI input it appears to be normal for a few seconds but the screen stays black and I get a thin pink line running horizontally across the bottom right corner of the screen then...


You did not mention what you are connecting with HDMI but I have had problems with my PS3 and it is copy protection related. On a PS3, you have to connect it to HDMI1 otherwise some BlurRay movies will not play.
You might have a bad HDMI cable. I have heard the quality of cable does not matter these days but I still have had issues with the really cheap cables. I still do not buy the really expensive HDMI cables though.

No picture and no sound just a blinking stand by light on front of my sony kdl40s2000 lcd tv


I have a Sony KDL40S2000 and three months out of manufacturer warranty my TV made a clicking noise similar to feedback in a bad sound system and went to black screen. The error was not recoverable and four blinking lights were seen by a technician. I bought the extended warranty from my store, so I was covered. After one month in the shop, the technician brought my TV back today and told me the panel was replaced which would have cost me 1000 dollars if I wasn't covered by the store warranty. I read on another site the four flashing lights can mean a bad inverter. I don't know enough about TVs to tell you if the panel and inverter are one in the same, I just know you need to get it repared if you get four blinking lights at a huge cost!
