Question about Sony BRAVIA KDL-46V3000 Television

1 Answer

I have a sony bravia KDL-46XBR5. When I first turn it on it has a distorted picture, mostly on the right side, with 2 lines that go across horizontal. It also darkens the picture here. After about 40 minutes the picture returns back to normal. The time it is taking to get back to normal has been steadily increasing. Do you have any suggestions as to what is causing this and what it would take to fix this? Thanks for your help.

That sounds correct, I just have to work on SONY BRAVIA KDL-40BR4 with Horizontal lines problem on ther right side, you you tap around the frame, the lines will come and go, this is only 2 years old TV! Poor quality panel made by SONY/SAMSUNG company jointed venture.
Very sad indeed when you paid for BRAVIA series which are not cheap.
New screen will cost more than new TV.

I have a KDL 46XBR5 which displays horizontal lines across the screen for approximately 5 minutes after turning on the TV. Is there a fix for this problem?


The reddish blotchy screen also had a series of horizontal lines/sections of screen on occasion. I was able to determine that the ground wire screws were loose (loosened and retightend all of them) and a few of the connections between boards (the wires/plugs) were loose. Seems to have resolved the issue without having to replace any boards/caps etc. I would try this free 20 minute fix before searching out a new board.

I have a Flat screen Sony Bravia KDL-46S4100. Lines go across the screen horizontally about 6 inches apart. There is distortion especially on the right side mostly on lower right. What needs to be done to...


Are the lines all the way across the screen? or just a few? Solid black - or trannslucent?

Like this??

Horizontal drive has either data, voltage, or control problem from the pixel registry circuit......get it serviced before the problem spreads causing further damage.

However, in all likelyhood, the panel itself is bad. The Bravia line has had a bad rap about the faulty displays, and at $1800 replacement (plus labor) - it may be time to call SONY direct to complain!

Thanks!!

I have coloured vertical lines covering my Sony Bravia LCD tv screen. The TV is only 2 years old. I have sound but a very distorted picture. The cable company has checked and says it's a tv problem. I will...


I also have a 2 yr old Sony KDL32xbr4 that now has multi-colored vertical lines on the screen. I contacted Sony and they say they have "no known issue" of this sort for this model. I find this rather puzzling since I have found numerous postings on the web. They told me to try the factory reset. Whatever. Might as well have said "don't buy a Sony". 2 years! $1300 for a tv and it lasts 2 years! Makes me sick to my stomach.

Well if the panel is bad it would not clear up in any situation, so its not the panel. most likely the t-con board or just poor connections inside. Julio Millenium TV in Las Vegas.
