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.

Green line running vertically along the edge of picture


If its a LCD projection TV (such as Sony Wega, Hitachi, Epson, Philips, and some Panasonic, some Mitsubishi), and the green image is in the whole screen or just one part as a blob or a line. Is most probably that one of your LCD Color Filters is damaged (burned out or starting to get busted), I don’t know if you can just replace the color filter, I believe you need to change the whole light engine system or the optical block. There are some places around, I found some on ebay but you should definitely try on discountdashmerchantdotcom their price range $260.00 - $330.00

6 horizontal lines


I would look for a Vertical circuit failure. Most likely is the vertical output IC and or open resistor off the hv transformer. Definitely look for any loose solder connections around the Vertical output IC.
Hope this helps,

Blue Vertical Lines on the screen


It means the optical block is going bad. Contact Sony support. They will sometimes warranty these even after the 1yr warrany has expired. Have your model and serial numbers handy.

Thin vertical red line


This maybe the symptom of a bad Panel. One Vertically This line is 99% bad panel. Call your warranty provider or SONY tech support if purchased under 2 years.

Sony 60" HDTV Plasma WEGA....Picture Problem


Sounds like your component cables may have come off its contact point. Check to see if your cables have become loose. Pushing them back in place should take care of that but check at the source output and the TV's input. Red Green Blue, when ever one of these 3 come out of contact the TV will produce a color hue relevant to what color remains in contact, looking faint and discolored. If you do find a loose cable connection, inspect the contact ends and squeeze lightly to restore a snug fit but don't do it to hard or you may damage the prongs.
