Question about Sony KDF-E55A20 55 in. LCD Television

2 Answers

Sony Grand wega KDF-E50A10

When we turn on the TV it tkakes about 2 minutes for the picture to come on. When the picture does come on it has vertical lines acorss the whole picture. Also cannot change channel and volume by remote or on the TV.

I have the same problem on my sony LCD rear projection TV. I turn it on and there are vertical lines of varying colors across the screen, no sound, the only thing the tv responds to from local or remote controls are the power button and the Up arrow on the remote, which is used to trigger a factory reset sequence (according to the manual). Reset doesn't help. The bars slowly start to go away on the screen and usually the TV works the next day. It'll work for a few days a flake out again.

    Have the same issue. The channel still displays behind the lines (a whole lot of them...vertical...red yellow and blue). You can barely make out the picture behind. When the input is unplugged, the lines remain so it is not the source...it is the TV. It is 1.5 yrs old...model KDFE50A10.

    Yes, i have the very same problem. Last night I turned on my tv and find the problem described by the other user. Vertical colored lines onthe screen and no response to the buttons on the tv and the remote. Only images from the s-video source can be barely seen. No other sources display any image.

    My tv's model is: KDF-E42A10. Manufactured in july 2005, buyed in october 2005.

    Has anyone with this issue actually had their TV serviced?? I'm trying to decide to service or replace. It's a shame to trash a 2 yr old TV. Thanks.

Unfortunately the B Box assembly needs to be changed in these and price of the part alone is more than half the cost of a new tv

    Are you sure it isn't the DMB complete assembly?

From what it seems in your question... the problem has already went away... However, I actually know about this. There is a fuse inside the tv near the power button called B-3a... If you replace that fuse it should help fix permanently

This seems to be common problem with Sony projection tv. I have the KDF-E50A10 that lasted only 2 years. It's sitting in a corner now until I figure out what to do with it. I am not going to spend another grand to repair it!! Never Sony again.

Authorized sony repair center told me the problem was the Q Box. Ever heard of this? Part runs about 300 bucks. TV is out of warrenty as it is 2 years old. Do you think it is worth it to fight sony and get them to replace the part or just fix the TV?

Part Number is A1167541A, service rep called it a Q Box in the diag, however the web says its the b block assmy.

read this if you think it's the same problem
