Question about Sony WEGA KDE-50XBR950 50 in. Plasma HDTV

Sony wega kde-61xbr950

Hi,

There is a thin vertical line about a foot long and about 6 inches from the right side of the screen.  It seems to be mostly greenish in color.  It is not seen when, for instance, a commercial cuts off the screen and only black shows.
This has been present now for about 2 months.

Any ideas or suggestions as this TV was quite expensive.

Thanks,
Brad
My email is btinkelman@comcast.net About 4 months ago we began to notice a thin vertical line appearing about 4 inches from the left edge of the screen. It starts at the top and ends at the midpoint of the screen. Initially, the line would fade away after the TV was on for a couple of hours. However, the line now never goes away. Has anyone found a diagnoses for this issue? Is it a simple repair?

Can be a problem with a misplaced connection, more likely the Ysus card to be replaced.

    Try first unplugging the TV from power for 20 minutes or so, see if this reset can help.
    To check if it is connection you can also perform a whack test, but this involve hitting the TV on the sides, you must be carefulk on a plasma.
    It is more likely the Ysus card faulty, part sellers sell kits for replacement , if you have no experience better to call a technician, I will see how much part cost is.

    Here you can buy part for sony:
    1-800-488-SONY (7669)
    Even if it is likely that you need to replace the ysus it still possible that it is a logic problem with the main control chip (jungle chip)
    If TV is less than one year old it is covered on labor and parts by Sony Guaranty
    See here Limited warranty.

    To contact repair you can use this page or call the number on your owner manual.

I have a Sony WEGA KDE-42XS955 that takes 5 minutes for the picture to appear. Once it appears..works great! If I just leave it turned for it will work fine. Any idea what board needs to be replaced?


The main power supply regulator section circuit fault. Either it will be a separate board, or the part of main board. Check and replace damaged component/s at its main power regulator [SMPS] section circuit. Contact any service technician. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Pull up older posts. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/ It will be best to replace the power supply regulator board as card basis rather than making "Surgery" to it; which usually will make loss for both money and time. Even though you can make it right, it will cost around an amount equal to the cost of a new board; including the cost of (spare parts + service charge) More to say, most of the spare parts to it will be difficult to get from open electronic spare part market. This is true to most of the flat panel TV power supply boards; irrespective of its brand and screen size.

LG 55LM4600-UC LED TV I have was squirted with a squirt gun. Would replacing the t-con board fix this tv? Please read further details.


when water shorts out something it overloads a lot of other components so the best advice is to take it in for a proper diagnosis.
you just replace a board but another board is damaged it might just blow the board you replaced and that would prove nothing
