Sony bravia kdl52xbr2 problem

My Sony kdl52xbr2 is less than one year old.  The tv goes black with streaks of blue, green, and yellow.  The audio still works, just not the screen.  What are my options?  How can this be repaired?  Any advice would be appreciated.

Hi,hoping that the cable connections are right(check the cable connections once again)..... Sounds like you may have a problem with the video driver boards? I would call up the store where you bought it and ask for a new set or service on this one.
More than likely this is a bad display (lcd screen) the drivers in the lcd display have some problem...... the tv is just a month old so you are still under the warranty period....... just contact the sony outluet where you purchased or the manufacturer for servicing of tv

Use the yellow, red, and white inputs on the rear of your Bravia TV. You are trying to use the component inputs.

Connect cablebox/dvr to sony bravia

try yellow cable into the green y input.

The problem is that av output is going into component in
If the green port doesn't work I read on another forum that
you may be able to use a dvd recorder unit to take the av in and then it can re transmit the video to an output as component out on some dvd recorders.

Moved Sony Bravia TV, now will not turn on at all

The warranty on this set should be for 1 year. Return it for warranty service. Unless the set was dropped, moving it should not have effected anything. DO NOT open the set sas that would void the warranty.
