Question about Sony BRAVIA KDL-46S2000 46 in. LCD HDTV

1 Answer

Discoloration Hello, After replacing the lamp there is a band that runs horizontally on the top of the picture that is an orange discoloration. The band is about 1 to 2 " wide and it runs the entire width of the screen. I called the company I purchased the bulb from and they said it sounded like a tv issue. The bulb only provides the light for the tv. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank You

I don't think you are posting about a LCD flat panel set, since replacing he lamp on these means replacing the panel.. If this is a rear projection set as I suspect it is, there are two likely causes.
1) Pull the lamp back out and clean the dispersion lens/UV filter immediately behind where the lamp goes. Clean it carefully, because it is easy to damage.
2) You have a bad optical block

Horizontal lines on Samsung Plasma


Hi,


The most common cause for the loss of picture is a bad Horizontal Output Transistor (HOT). but I would suggest you get a detailed estimate. I think that this would cost you about $60.

The horizontal lines means the vertical amplifier or deflection system has failed. There are over 100 components in this section and any one of them, or most of them can be at fault. However, the most common failure is the VOT or vertical output transistor (which is often buried inside a chip).

The repair will cost around $150 plus or minus.

FEW TROUBLESHOOTING STEPS YOU CAN TRY:

ONE: Do a hard reset (just to make sure there is nothing in the coding that is fowling things up). Unplug the power cord; leave it disconnected for 4 hours. That will restore everything to factory defaults when you power it back up.

TWO: Do the "whacking test" by banging your fist on a few strategic places to see if there are any cold solder joints or loose wires acting up inside the set.

If the above steps don't solve ur problem then I suggest you to go for a repair if you don't have any knowledge of repairing it.

Goodluck...

Why does my TV show discolored vertical bands and can I fix it at home?


The T-con board controls the picture elements on the screen. Usually replacing this board will solve the problem. If you can touch the screen and the lines disappear and later reappear, that says the screen itself is defective. The only fix is to replace the entire screen.

Sylvania lc320ss8 horizontal bar discoloration


Do you have tv repair exp. If not then take it to a shop.If you do then reseat the plugs on the T Con board ( Timing Control). If that don't fix it then go on E-Bay and get a price on a used T-Con board and try that. Those boards have a high rate on going bad.

Panasonic TC-P42S2 .. Transparent 2 inch wide vertical discoloration on panasonic 42 inch plasma, very left of the screen.


Fixed mine, myself! Black 3 inch vertical band (stripe) appeared after a cros country move on our PC-T50G10. Occasionally we would see white band with multicolored pixel width stripes. Took the risk of taking off the back to see if I could see anything. Found places on sides and bottoms where plastic like 2" flat cables could be seen. Guesstimated where the band was and found that I could flip down a black cover on one end of the cable. Tried to pull it, gently. Mistake. Realized it wouldn't one out like computer hard drive cables, so I took out the screws holding the plate on the other end (it's only an inch long). That allowed me remove the cable. Took it out, cleared away dust, put t back and closed the black over. It worked! Put the screws back in, back on and... we are happy (although I do have four extra screws!). Just be gentle.

If you are using a VGA to VGA cable, it may be bad. These cables carry Red, Green, Blue, Vertical, and Horizontal information. If one of the colors are missing, the picture will be discolored.

I have a KDF-55E2000 Sony Grand VVEGA Color Discoloration


Bad news: The issue can only be solved by replacing the optical block for the TV. This was a defect in the design of this TV. Replacing this part is very expensive (over $1000) and time consuming (need to take whole TV apart).

Good news: Sony extended the warranty for the optical block for this model. They are covering the cost of parts and labor for this TV. Contact Sony to have them refer you to a authorized service center near you.
