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

Steamist unit installed by general contractor and shower enclosed in porous marble product. Orange discoloration has appeared around the metallic steam dispensing device. What could be causing this?


Orange discoloration is most often caused by rust or other minerals in the water.
Usually, the solution is to have a filter (or more than one) installed in the circuit.
God bless your efforts.

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.

I replaced the lamp. now I have discoloration, Red on top and blue on the bottom


Your TV is an LCD rear projection type which requires a Mercury Vapor lamp. Mercury Vapor lamps emit UV light which is damaging to many materials. The discoloration you are seeing on the screen is the UV damage that has resulted over time to the LCD panels within the “Optical Block” (aka projector) of the TV. This discoloration has been creeping up on you for sometime, it just wasn’t as noticeable until you changed the lamp. Once you installed the new lamp, the UV light is bad at full force and the damage progresses at a quicker pace, due to the already weakened state of the LCD panels. Additionally, the picture is now brighter, exposing the damage for you to clearly see. The only fix for this problem is to replaced the Optical Block… an expensive repair. Although this is not good news, I hope this helps you understand the cause & solution and was of some assistance.

Red band at top of tv


Hi,if its a an LCD RPTV it sounds like a light engine problem.Basically your tv uses 3 LCD chips that create the image .Each chip is like a tiny screen that blend together to get the colors and picture right.They are green,red and blue.When they start to fail you will start to get color discoloration or that red band you are getting.May the Lord Jesus bless you!

Side shadows on picture


it sounds as if there are speakers to close to the tv or the built in speakers are not magnetically sheilded properly (maufacturer defect) if u have or have ever had speakers on the left and right side of your tv then the magnets in them will discolor and distort the screen. sometimes even long after the speakers have been moved away from the tv it will still look that way. you may try going to the library( or online )and looking in tv repair books on how to build a homade degauser unless your tv has that feature built into it in the menu somewhere like some computer monitors do. I had placed the front speaker of a 5.1 surround sound system on top my tv and it cuased that same problem, but i found out that by placing a small round magnet with a hole in the center on top of the tv (after removing the speaker for good) right where the discoloration was.. had to flip it one side or the other to get proper effect...it immediatly took away most of the discoloration and over time it disappeared. I hope this helps. Please email me at agclay777@comcast.net as to your conclusion in case it will help others. thanks, Adam

Horizontal Banding


From the Microtek KB: www.microtek.com Scans that produce lines, fading, and discoloration generally result from a corrupt scanner driver installation or a burned out lamp. To determine if your problem is caused by a burned out lamp, simply open the scanner lid and check the color of the lamp. If the color is a shade of red, pink, or green, then the lamp is burned out. Perform a scanner preview to get a clear view of the lamp. If the lamp is a bright white and the problem still exists, please contact technical support.
