I have 2 sony bravia with freezed dark vertical lines across it making that potion darker in color


If problem is one side or one half of the picture this LCD may have an inverter issue--Google the model number with either "inverter" or Parts to see if the issue is known.

Lines that are black usually are either a "handshake" issue where boards are not communicating properly or a bad board or even a bad display unit (main screen Panel) which is fatal.

This requires testing and or replacing boards to see if a board or the Display panel is causing this issue.

Left side of screen is dark


When you say the screen is dark, do you mean that the picture is still faintly visible or is the left side black with a sharp edge between the black and the visible picture?

If the screen is dark with a faintly visible picture then you have a faulty backlight. This could be due to the inverter board, which can be repaired or replaced, or it could be the CCFL tube which is a bit harder to replace.
If the left side is completely black with a sharp edge then the LCD itself is faulty and may require replacing.

In any case, any of the problems listed above should only be repaired by a competant electronics engineer.

During dark scenes or solid black picture, faint vertical lines can be seen across the entire screen. Have had tv for two months.


It is under warranty, have it check before warranty runs out ASAP because you do not want to have something else goes wrong either.

Have a block across the top fifth of the screen that is just dark black lines, and the rest of the top half has some kind of fuzzy interference. The bottom half of the picture is fine.

I have the exact think happening on my Samsung LN46A530 and it has just been 2 years since I bought it. There better be a cheap fix for this because a $2,000 product has to last a lot longer than 2 years.

Thin curved lines in sony widescreen


Those sound like what is called "scan lines" and are the result of the way the picture is "drawn" on the face of the screen. Something in the set is allowing too much drive to the screen, as these are usually suppressed during normal operation...accordianman
