Question about Sony BRAVIA XBR KDL-V26XBR1 26 in. LCD HDTV

2 Answers

I have a 3 year old Sony Bravia 26" that has started to display two (2) colored, intermitant horizontal lines. One at the bottom of the screen and one in the middle. What does this indicate and has it been a known problem

    The display is not one of distinct "lines" but rather a series of horizontal dashes in a multi colored display. It started with just one level at the middle of the screen and the same display occured at the bottom of the screen two days later. Each dash is like it's own minature display in color and actually pulsates.

Yes it is a known problem. You have a faulty t-con board(timing control). Don't worry as this is a rather inexpensive component and for a set of this size the replacement module costs only about 50-75$. If you want to try replacing it yourself then let me know and I will guide you with the same.

No this isn't a problem that is well known on your tv.
If the lines are there , in the same configuration, constantly then the LCD panel is faulty and cannot be repaired - just junk it, replacing the panel would cost you more than a new tv.
If the lines are always in the same general position but change in position and look then the buffer memory from the image processor has failed - you must replace the entire mainboard - this is going to be expensive - around $300 - so it may not worth it. Your call.

I have a Bravia KDL-52w4500. Over the last month I have started to get more and more horizontal line across the screen. These do not go away. What can I do to fix this


unfortunatly, horizontal lines on an lcd tv, almost always mean a bad lcd panel. if it is out of warranty, it will be really cost prohibitive to replace the panel. if the set is only a year old or so call sony customer support and ask for a concession for the part.
