Question about Sony WEGA KE-42XS910 42 in. HDTV-Ready Plasma Television

1 Answer

Wide white vertical bar down center of screen.

I have a 1.5" wide bar running from top to bottom of my screen. It's nearly in the center (bar starts exactly on center and goes 1.5" to the right). It appeared one morning, after the tv had been off overnight, as a multicolored bar then quickly became black. After talking to Sony tech support, I reset the tv by unplugging it for 1 minute. The bar became white, but was otherwise unchanged. I also tried another outlet. Still have the white bar. Sony says it needs to be taken in for service. Unfortunately, I live on a small Caribbean island where that is impossible. We don't have any kind of electronics repair available at all. Anyone know where I can get detailed technical help so I might try to fix it myself? Thanks.

The only way to fix this is to replace the entire inside of the television, basicly the entire set except the case and power supply. I watched two repairman do this repair and this is not a do it yourself job. I asked them on a scale from a 1-10 how hard this job was for them, and almost before I could get the last words out of my mouth with this questions they both said a 10.

Plug in external monitor to see how that works. If it does same the issue is with your laptop. If it works fine the issue is with your laptop display that needs replacement.

If you mean the bar goes top to bottom, there are circuitboards that feed the info in small sections top to bottom. But usually one section will be one inch wide. It can also be the screen panel itself. Try a trusted tv shop

Screen split with black bar through center, top of picture shows in bottom

It sounds as you desribe, the vertical output IC and or the b+ feed capacitor off the Hi voltage transformer feeding the vert. IC its required voltage. Not a really hard job to replace, but not for a handi person to do. This should be left to the professional, as there are no user serviceable parts inside this set and with the HI voltage and the safety issues its best to call somesone to assist you with this repair. Good Luck
