Question about Sony BRAVIA KLV-S40A10 40 in. HD-Ready LCD Television

3 Answers

I think my son broke my TV.....

I believe my son may have hit my screen with something, because the picture will not show up when I turn it on. There are lines all over the screen and a spot in the bottom left hand corner of the screen with "spider lines" coming out in all directions like it was hit. My question is, can this be fixed? The television is brand new and I have not had any other problems with it. I was stupid however, and did not purchase a warranty. Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thank you, Susan

    I have a Sony Bravia KDL-40V2500 that is almost 1 year old. My daughter hit the screen hard with her elbow and I've got the same thing; a mostly dark screen with a few vertical color lines, a circle of light where the impact occurred with spider lines. I'm not sure if its repairable either just searching now to see if it can be fixed.

You can have them repaired using a TV Repair guy but often it costs as much as a brand new plasma. My daughter broke my $1,600 LCD. It would have cost $1,200 to fix.. so I just bought a new one.After that I picked up a TV screen protector called TV Armor http://www.tv-armor.com Its designed to protect the TV from damage. Now I dont have to worry anymore when she is playing near it. It works really well.

Son hit tv with ball no sound but....picture is fine


Perhaps you check all cables and connections. And look if all switches are in the correct position. He could heave accidentally have hit the mute button, or a button to switch to other speakers.

I almost can't believe something is defect inside the TV.

I have 60 inch westinghouse lcd hdtv full hd 1080p hdmi that my son hit screen with cell phone did not crack screen but when you turn it on it shows up like a broken piece of glass and rainbow lines s


NOT worth fixing as the entire front screen unit is called a display panel and the cost of the part (not counting major labor to replace it) exceeds the cost of a new set.

Sorry, but panels are rather fragile and this is fatal.

Picture is not on the screen. I cannot seem to


Alot of times you have to back up the TV to something like LINE 1 or LINE 2. It will not show up with the TV on channel 3. When I attached my VCR, I hit input and line 1 and 2 came up and then the DVD player would play just fine. Try that.

Slight damage by impact.


Dont worry its not about to die but................. that hairline crack could expand and to avoid this you could start by not hitting it hard or moving the pen past that line to much. You could ask any videogame seller (in stores obviously) were it can be fixed believe me they told me were this guy is that fixed my gamecube console and ds but scince i dont know were you live i dont think it would be usefull to tell you. I hope this really helps you and plkease post me a comment. By the way if you know someone near San diego that fixes ds stuff tell me because the guy i know doesnt know how to fix something. tnx

No Picture with sound


Make sure the setting on the av cable is for tv or hdtv, whatever type of tv your using. I hit that switch so many times, its a pain.

Still not working, disconnect all cables then reconnect.

Vertical colored lines on screen-no picture


It's definitely possible. I'd have it checked by a repair center for something like this.
