Question about Televison & Video

I have a 19 month old sony bravia lcd kdl-46w4100. about a week ago I started vertical lines on my screen that haven't resolved with sony troubleshooting. right now it looks like my screen is split into 3 sections left to right with varying colors in each section. left section looks very purple in color, middle has some horizontal lines in it, right looks pretty normal. any help would be greatly appreciated before I spend the money to take it to a tech. .

    thanks for the quick reply. what am i looking for with the t-con board. is this something I can purchase and have someone install for me if this is the problem? is this gonna be an expensive fix for a less than 2 yr old tv?

    Thanks,

    Jeff

Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. From what you have described it seems either the T-con board in your unit has gone bad and/or it is not getting the required 12vdc from the power supply unit. If you have knowledge of internal circuitry of the unit then you can open the back of the unit and check the T-con board which is the last board before the LCD panel. Usually it is available with the LCD Panel. Unfortunately replacing this is only recommended to be done by someone with electrical expertise. Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.


Thanks
Rylee

I have a Sony Bravia KDL-46w4100. It has started to dark screen on start up. It sounds like this is a common problem for Sony tvs. Does anyone know the fix?


If you are not afraid of taking the tv apart you can check the connections of the ribbon cables and check to see if you have any swollen capacitors. If these look good your control board may be going out.

Sony bravia kdl-46w4100 moving vertical lines


Check the main filter capacitors at its power regulator board. Replace if found bulged or damaged. Replace all secondary side supply rails' filter capacitors too. The fault is with damaged electrolytic capacitors at the power regulator board itself.
