The SONY LCD TV is 2 1/2 Years old about 6 months ago I noticed a very light pink 3in vertical line, now after the tv is on for about 30 to 45 min the line is black. does any one have a clue how to fix this. it is out of sony warranty. I also bought a 5 yr extended warranty from a company called Repair tech which went out of buisness. so I'm screwed. Thank You.

Hello,
The line or dots on an LCD screen are because of dead pixels and tolerable upto a certain limit as per policy of the manufacturer. But line is not permissible and should be changed in the warranty support. The isssue you are reporting is the vertical line and the the film is to be changed. So if the set is not in warranty it might be a big expense as there is no way to fix it at home.
Thanks

Black vertical line


This seems to be a problem with some older panels. If you are prepared to tackle the problem yourself then try the following.
WARNING there are some very high voltages within the TV which can be LETHAL so the greatest of care should be taken.

With the back of the TV removed, use a hair dryer and apply warm air to all the ribbon cables in turn until you find the one which causes the fault to disappear. Now turn your attention to the faulty ribbon and remake the connections as necessary.

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.

Tiny particles of dust on the light engine lens can cause this (and was a service call for me about a month ago), or possibly the expensive light engine.
