Question about Sony Televison & Video

1 Answer

My Sony Bravia KDL 40WL 135 TV has been flashing strange colors for awhile; today screen is black with a thin blue line across the bottom. No sound. Any help appreciated.

TV has been flashing odd colors on left side of screen for a couple of weeks; today screen is black with only a thin, blue horizontal line about three inches up from the bottom of the screen. Any ideas out there? It is about three years old, so no warranty.

The vertical output section circuit has the fault. Contact any experienced service technician. This is not a user repairable fault.

SOURCE: I have a Flat screen

Are the lines all the way across the screen? or just a few? Solid black - or trannslucent?

Like this??

Horizontal drive has either data, voltage, or control problem from the pixel registry circuit......get it serviced before the problem spreads causing further damage.

However, in all likelyhood, the panel itself is bad. The Bravia line has had a bad rap about the faulty displays, and at $1800 replacement (plus labor) - it may be time to call SONY direct to complain!

Thanks!!

I risk getting a bad rating from you, but it sounds as though you have a bad LCD panel. I have seen sections of the panels fair, usually caused by a separation of the ribbons connecting to the panel itself or a bad TCON board (the board that addresses the pixels. It is part of the panel on Sony TV's). Your best bet is to contact Sony customer service at 800-222-SONY to see if they will work out some kind of accommodation on the repair, like possibly covering the parts or splitting the repair costs with you. I hope I have provided you with good information and you do not rate me poorly for your bad news.

Try different cable, if you still get the problem after replacing cables, then you have a defective sygnal board (input board).

If the balck line extends from top to bottom and is only a pixel in width then your LCD panel is at fault.

52" Sony Bravia TV has a thin Blue line down left


A line on an LCD screen can be cause by the screen itself going bad or the T-con board. The T-con board the attached to the screen on the backside and covered by a heatshield. If you get teh part number from it you can find it online from one of the many retails that might have it. Like www.interliquidparts.com

This sounds like what I managed to do to my screen, even though I knew better. Is there any chance you layed the screen face down at some time?

Even though you can still watch it OK, you probably have hairline fractures in the screen face (NOT the screen itself- be thankful for that- the cracks are in the screen coating). LCD screens are a very thin glass laminate with a thin protective glass-like coating. When they are laid flat (like I did to connect cables) if the screen bears any weight, microcracks develop on the front of the screen.

I am sorry to say that the effect is permanent.
