    For the past year when TV was powered on the picture would flicker a few times then go completely black. If the TV is turned on and off repeatedly for about 15-20 minutes itwould finally show picture. No problems with the volume just the picture.

    The picture is strange and now it is showing black lines through the picture. If I push the input button, the input signs come up and the picture is more normal but very dark, then again the stripes start to appear after a few minutes. I hope you can help

When the picture is dark, show a torch light on the screen from a safe distance. If you can see the picture, the backlight is the problem. Anyhow, it is better to show it to a qualified service technician.

Noticable flickering when viewing dark images.


Hello, I too experience this exact same problem. In my opinion, any television under 2 grand is probably going to have some slight imperfection as this; I have tried a few different ones myself. To some, it would appear to only be a minor annoyance, but to those who truly can distinguish a good quality picture between a bad one, or to those people, such as myself, who would find something like this to be unacceptable, this is a disheartening situation.
My friend, I have tried many different settings to see which ones might resolve this issue with the blacks in the picture, or at least reduce it to a barely noticeable level and I have found that when I select the CUSTOM picture mode, reduce the contrast to about 60, turn up the brightness to 62, turn OFF blur reduction,x/v/ color on, CATS on, MPEG NR ON, turn Dark level to LIGHT(this is important) add a little bit of extra color for ex. 52, and sharpness to 75, that this produces a pleasing to the eye performance when watching blu ray movies and dvd's. The flickering is reduced to almost nothing, and the picture quality actually appears sharper and more ethereal in certain ways.
The downside to this is that you are lacking some true depth in the picture's darks, but after your eyes adjust and you are watching a good quality movie, you will notice that there still sort of is enough darks there to compensate. Further fine tuning may produce even better results, jsut have to keep playing around with it. But I am now convinced after hearing somebody come forward with the same exact problem i'm having on the same tv, that it is not a defect but just an imperfection that you sometimes have to deal with when you don't spend like 5 grand on a tv. Good luck and happy viewing!

Our Sony Bravia tv picture keeps going light dark light dark. What is causing this problem? It is very annoying when it goes dark because you can't see the picture. Please help.


I have Sony KDL-32XBR9 and I have noticed a similar problem. When the picture is showing mostly black, for example during the ending credits of a movie, the TV will further darken the display. Once the picture lightens back up, the TV will adjust the brightness of the display back to normal. I just called Sony customer support and they indicated it was a firmware problem and they will be sending a USB device in the mail to update the firmware. Hope this helps.

Backlighting issues on tv set (I think). Screen goes extremely dark after about 30 min. of viewing. Does not return to orginial brightness unless unit is left off for a long period of time


Lcd tv sets are lit by small glass florescent tubes called cold cathodes and, are powered by: ballasts called inverters... these go out just like your office florescent lighting the parts can be purchased online from electronic parts houses and, are easily replaced

Flickers on cold startup after 5 min then goes away in 2-3 min.


I had same problem. Tech's said the power was noisy. I cleaned up the power but the TV still did exactly as you describe. Problem will progressively get worse with longer bouts of flickering. I was under warrenty and sent the TV back. After 3 months I am still waiting for a repalcement.
