Question about Sony BRAVIA KDL-40S2010 40 in. LCD Television

1 Answer

I have a single line that is aprox. 1.5 inches in on the edge of the screen. The line mainly is black but also appears red. It is a vetical line and to top it off it goes away once in awhile just to make my day complete. This Tv has been flawless till this point and on HD or Blueray blows away higher priced units. The tv is a kdl46w4100 lcd 120 hz . I'm On Bell sat and all my hdmi are top end monster cables. There is a well used Wi connected to it any help would be great ..........Thanks Shane

You probably have a bad solder joint on one of the matrix controllers.
Below is an example on a smaller LCD, but it will give you an idea what you are looking for.
As you can see, there are several controllers and each controls a "strip" of pixels
If a solder joint lets loose then that strip will go black or become distorted in color.
To make your day more complete, the vibrations from the speakers will occasionally cause the connection to reconnect, making it a bit harder to locate the EXACT pin that came unsoldered.
In these cases, it's best to put liquid solder flux across all the contacts on that controller and resolder all of the pads on that controller.
These connections are extremely close together though, so make sure you have adequate magnification to check for solder bridges after resoldering the controller to the board.
If your soldering skills aren't great, you may want to have this done at a shop - just don't let them tell you that you need a whole new screen right off the bat. It's almost always just loose solder and not a defective controller, especially if the unit self repairs once in a while.

The convergence is off. When I try to use touch


Ok, we go to solution of your problem===The pico fuses are green and on the main power board--have you removed the back and looked inside--most of these sets have the two STK-392-110 on the main board to the right-they are usually on the left edge of this board on two very large metal heat sinks--chips are about 2 1/2 inch wide X 1 1/2 inch tall--is this how your set looks inside? they will have the number printed on the black face of each chip in white--The fluke meter will allow you to check all the grey protect resistors--most are 1.8 ohm and the pico fuses will be near the edge of the board to the left----All I expect from you for help is a vote here--if you remove the back do you see the chips?

Epson 9800 Prints black dotted vertical line


This is a workaround - I too need a definitive answer. Symptom: black dotted vertical line 1/2 to 3/4" from leftmost image edge. I have begun adding single vertical line to my prints .25" from the left edge of the paper to force the "dots" off my print - this seems to have the desired affect, but it does not answer the cause or provide a true remedy (it will save many of your prints while we wait for complete solution). dkh

Black vetical line


It's either x-main or logic board... Take it to a qualified shop and I think you'll be impressed... Most of these are repaired at module level now and it makes the repair relatively inexpensive.
