Question about Sony BRAVIA KDL-40S2000 40 in. LCD HDTV

Random screen format adjustment!

For some reason the screen format on our tv keeps changing randomly while you're watching tv or a dvd. It doesn't matter if you set it to "smart" or one of the other settings, it has a mind of it's own and will just start to change and flicks about.
Any idea's what could be causing it?

I have a panasonic 42", the volume and channel was change on it's own. I needed a new DT board. It's the board with all the rca inputs. Cost for the part was $250 and labor was $300 with a $30 dollar charge for finding the problem. I ended up paying the $30 dollars and found the part online for $120. About fifty screws later the tv was like new! Hope this helps.

My Fujitsu lifebook T902 keeps changing the screen brightness levels for no apparent reason.


I would think that if the virtual level controls are not changing, either the power socket/supply, back light or invertor has an issue.

There should be a DVD Repeat modes or "Repeat/Repeat Modes" button on your remote. Press that until it's back to "ALL" and it should play things properly again for you.

If the picture has red 'staining' all over the picture which is static then the fault is the Xsus pcb. If the picture has random 'sparklies' that change then it may be a case that either the ppower supply Vs voltage has deviated from its set voltage which can be adjusted by a potenitometer on the psu pcb...or if the psu voltages are correct (when compared to the screen label factory voltages) then by tweaking the Ysus trimmers, The fault could be a deviated tolerance on the Ysus.

Random flashing streaks on screen


Check multiple inputs and multiple sources. Check your dvd player; does it happen there? If not, you are probably right to suspect the cable box.

When you are checking multiple inputs, you want to make sure that if your cable box uses component or HDMI, that you check your DVD player on the same style input.

The reason for this is that your electrical chassis treats the analog (composite, s-video) inputs different from the HD and digital inputs (component, DVI, HDMI).

If you try your DVD player and cable box on the same input and experience the same probelm, you probably need to have the electrical chassis rebuilt in order to fix a problem on the tv's FMT board.

Cost: $800+

How do I set the DVD picture to Full Screen as opposed to Wide Screen?


That is the way the DVD makers intended it to be. The TV cannot be adjusted to change that if it is a widescreen or "letterbox" movie.

Black Screen


Ok, this is probably what has happened, you say that you have played games on your tv, well the thing is with HD and Plasma Screen tv's is that when you play Hi-Res games on them the games backdrop will burn itself into the screen, causing the screen to turn dark and not reveal the correct picture it should. People need to learn about this!!!!! Playing games on HD and Plasma tv's will screw up your resolution!!!
