    Problem:screen turns black in centre and across to the right of the screen after about 10-15 it comes good, this happens on all tv chanels (we do not have cable.) A repair man has had a look at the TV and avises the inverter is the problem which requires a new LCD panel..Does this sound correct?(Any idea on cost of the panel.)..Have you heard of any problem same as this with this model. Saleman is trying to tell us it only happened to a different model. Uni is about 18 mnths old, are Sony providing assistance de to short life span to avoid bab publicity..

I am sorry to say but there is NO easy fix.
If you use a professional service center you will NOT be scammed as you put it. We are professionals, and for the most part wouldn't do such a thing. Further, this is also why one should always take their units to an approved and licensed, qualified service center/men and NOT to the back yard Mr Fixer.
So, it is nearly always my professional opinion that one should always get a "Quote" from the manufacturers recommended service center, Sony, in your case, please contact a Sony, local or head office and ask for a referral to an Authorised service center. I cannot stress how important that last point is. It is even worth the cost of shipping. You see an authorised service agent, will have trained PROFESSIONAL staff, trained on their brand, also they have first hand access to original parts. This will actually save you money and ensure you can actually get it back fixed. Of course asking for a "Quote" also gives on the option of repair or replace.
Below is a training manual this is what we use to train the engineers.

while the owner manual does not specify the length etc of bolts it does show there are 4 of them---look like find thread machine bolt---may be able to buy a few at the hardware sore or Home Depot---if the threads are inside the base take it with you as a guide.

Sony Bravia KDL-40W4500 turns off


This can indicate a problem with the high voltage circuits. Since this is a new set, it should still be under warranty. DO NOT open up the unit as that will void the warranty. Return the set or request warranty service. Note the 8 blinks when you request service as that should allow them to bring the correct replacement parts.

Keep us posted.
