Question about Sony KDF-E60A20 60 in. LCD HDTV

1 Answer

Sony 40 inch lcd television

Tv is about 1 year old. just noticed two thin vertical lines, maybe 1/2 inch long. they seem to be growing in length, when the screen is white the lines are red, and they do change color with the color on the screen. One of the lines is right in the center of the screen so its getting really annoying. I know the screen has not been damaged at all. is there anything that can be done, and should I expect these lines to continue to grow in length?

Call Sony!! It Will get worse!!! The panel has ribbons that have fine wires that are used to show each line of information on the screen. Either the panel is going or the wires are loose. Either way, the panel needs replacing. Just hope to God it's under warranty or if not, sony will help you out with a buy-out.

I have a Sony 26 inch Bravia LCD tv model KDL-V26XBR1.It has thin vertical black and yellow lines about an inch apart across the whole display. Not noticeable from a distance but really see them up...


Well if the panel is bad it would not clear up in any situation, so its not the panel. most likely the t-con board or just poor connections inside. Julio Millenium TV in Las Vegas.

Sony Bravia KDL-40S2000 thin vertical line


If the line is present in all inputs and modes, there is a problem with the LCD Panel. The only way to fix it is to replace the whole LCD Panel which is very expensive (usually around $1000+ for 40" Sony). Unless the TV in under warranty, it is usually around the same price for a new TV.

My SOny Bravia 40 inch LCD TV has a vertical line


Hi,

It could be 1 of 4 things:
1. One of the ribbon cables has worked itself loose (Simple Fix)
2. One of the assembly boards maybe faulty
3. The driver board which feeds the panel maybe faulty
4. The panel is faulty

The driver board in the UK costs approx £70 and approx £35-70 to fit it if this is the fault.

All other parts are between £80-160 and approx £35-70 to fit it if this is the fault.

The panel will cost approx 50-75% of what the TV was worth when you bought it - "Repair versus Replacement"

Thanks

Exact problem


This is an internal malfunction, deffinately use the warranty on it. If you decide to fix it yourself post again and I'll walk you through changing the LCD controller. Its not too challenging, but will require you to dismantle almost the entire tv.

Thin vertical line


You are going to find it is a LCD panel problem. I am sure that they will take care of you. But also realize that this could have happen to any brand of LCD panel and you will probably not have any other panel issues once it is fixed.

Sony Bravia XBR 40" LCD


First, HORIZONTAL CENTER.
1) Press MENU.
2) Scroll to SETTINGS.
3) Scroll to SCREEN.
4) Go to HORIZONTAL CENTER. Move the picture to the right. Hopefully, the line will go away. Otherwise, there is a problem with the pixels or the signal processor. Call 1-800-222-SONY. Or, http://eservice.sony.com. Have a high-limit credit card handy for out of warranty repairs. Sorry about that.
