Question about Sony BRAVIA KDL-52W3000 52 in. LCD Television

Open Question

SONY KDL46Z4500. Panel was replaced but now picture not as clear.

Repairer sourced new panel from Singapore but viewing is now pail in comparison to original screen. This was the best TV I had ever seen. He assures me its fine as there is only one panel that fits.
Could this be an after market chinese version rather than from Japan? As they no longer make this model.

SOURCE: Sony Flat Panel tv with no Picture

Flat panel TV's typically do not have "bulbs," but rather backlighting.  Plasma displays are especially touchy during movement.  I would suggest checking your warranty status, as it's probably not something you can easily repair.  If you wanted to take on the repair yourself, be careful not to lay down the screen, as it will drastically shorten the life of the Plasma display.  I would start with checking the system boards for possible damage, since you did hear a "click," It was probably a fuse, chip, etc.

Here is how it works. The price of the part itself is $1.279.99. There is a $1,740.00 CORE charge as well. The total would be $3,019.99. Now, you will get the core charge back ($1,740.00) when you return the old LCD. However, if the LCD has a mounted board on it and IT IS CRACKED, then you will not be able to return the core. And you will not receive your core charge back.

Please see below for a link to the screen you would need.

I had this same issue, and solved it by putting the TV in "Theater Mode', which can be acheived by hitting the "Theater" button on the remote.

If the screen works for a short while and then completely fails once the TV warms up you have a problem with the main unit video board or the LCD control logic board. Most often if the picture cuts out but audio continues to work the logic board is over heating and should be replaced. However if the picture cuts out and audio shuts off as well then its your video input board.

Hi looking to see what might be problem with my sony bravia klv32t400a television showing lines through pictures but through dvd plays clear picture

If you get a clear picture using your DVD player, then the problem may not be the TV, but rather with the satellite decoder, or the wiring from the source to the decoder.

If the signal you are trying to view is coming from an external device such as a DVD player check your connections from the device to the TV are correct and firm and that the external device is on and functioning properly (test this with another working TV to prove the external device is not the problem).

If you are trying to view video from a built in source then there may be a fault with the TV itself and it will need to be repaired by a qualified technician.
Check to see if when the TV is first turned on if the display gets slightly lighter in colour (the backlight turns on / PDP panel is energised), this information will greatly help the repairer give you an accurate indication of cost and time of repair.
Also note when the problem occurs, is it always missing picture or only when the unit has been on for a while, or only on hot or cold days.

If the problem is with something connecting to the TV then you should be able to fix it yourself, if not any information you can give a repairer will help with getting it fixed cheaper and faster.

TV picture is oversized and we cannot correct it. Heads and borders are cut off.

Confirm that your source(s) are set to "widescreen" or "16:9". If you have the remote, use the "wide" button to cycle through the aspect settings. One setting should look better than the rest, without cutting off any of the picture.

If you continue to have issues, please list the source and source material you are viewing.

Set up new tv

Try using your TV remote by pressing View Source. I didn't have Toshiba but my pix did not fit screen either. I used View Source on remote and it changed how the picture filled the screen.

Hi my picture is not as clear as my friend's tv. My screen seems almost cloudy.

It depends upon the room size and how you have placed the tv. if u position it in a proper manner then you will have a clear view.

Try changing the cable to another connector. If picture is still poor, try changing the cable for a new one. Also verify that the sky unit is giving a good picture by connecting it to another TV and see if picture is clear.

You could also verify the connections on the TV by inputting video from another source such as VCR or video camera.
