Question about Sony BRAVIA KDL-46W4100 46 in. LCD HDTV

1 Answer

Similar question as everyone else. I bought a Sony KDL-46W4100 LCD tv in 2008, when I turned it on yesterday I noticed a thin red line on the left side of the screen about 3 inches from side which runs vertical all the way from top to bottom. It seems to go away after about 5 minutes. Is this the LCD panel? I can live with it going away, however, I'm assuming this is only going to get worse. Oh and the line is there whether i'm watching HD, standard, or watching a dvd.

I just read some Sony literature about T-Con issues and how to determine if the problem is the T-Con or the LCD panel. One of the examples they gave was exactly as you are describing. Unfortunately according to Sony the panel has failed and the only way to fix the problem would be replacement which is very cost prohibitive. Your other option would be to contact Sony and make them aware of your situation. Try speaking with as many people as possible and write down names. I have heard of times that they replaced the TV for free but to be honest I don't know of anyone who has been that lucky. Their number is 1-239-768-7547 Monday through Friday 9:00am to 8:00pm ET.

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.

SONY KDL-46W4100 LCD colour horizontal lines...


HI,
Your tv have problem with the T con board. The t con board drives the Pixels in the lcd screen . If there is some problem with the t con board then this can exibits such problem as you mentioned. Normally you can find the t con board in the bottom center of the lcd coverd with a metal cover. Its part number is SONY T-CON: E40951307. If its avilable then try to replace the same which will solve the problem. Its a regular complaint with the Lcd tv's. I have added the picture of tcon board.

Som times if there is any loose conatct in the pannel connection which comes to the t con board then also the same problem can occur. Before going to replace the board do one thing remove all the connections to the t con board and reconnect it. Some times it will solve the problem. If you need any more assistace feel free to conatct me through fixya.

I have vertical lines on my screen


Single colored, pencil-thin? If they stay same place when switch to HD channel and back, It's bad LCD panel. Expensive.

Sony Bravia KDL-40S2000 thin vertical line


If the line is present in all inputs and modes, there is a problem with the LCD Panel. The only way to fix it is to replace the whole LCD Panel which is very expensive (usually around $1000+ for 40" Sony). Unless the TV in under warranty, it is usually around the same price for a new TV.
