My 14 month old sony xbr 4 is not working right, 2 month out of warranty looking at a thousand $ repair, 2700.00 $ paid for 14 month use, I am very upset.
Right half of picture is darkish with dark red discoloration,left side picture is o.k. When I hit the tv lightly on the back at right side the picture goes back to normal for short while.Repairmen took out part and "repaired" power inverter, Tv was o.k. for a few hours, then the old problem startet up again.He said he needed to get avery expensive part to fix tv. Please HELP. Gloria I.

would think you need to replace the cable board etc. the signal is not getting in and out right. can also be a fault on the power board giving the wrong volts so would check this to. it will tell you on the board what volts is supposed to be. the 5v and 12v should be spot on other volts will vary a little. also check the capacitors for the caps to be bowed up and a brown/ yellow gunk around them and under the board this can be a sign they are failing.
Sounds like your TV has a PIP (picture in picture) that allows your AVI (audio visual input) to be viewed simultaneously with your cable input. Check the manual for the correct buttons, but the one you're looking for says either PIP or AVI or something along those lines. Hope this helps
Please post both the exact model number (on the back) and the blink count. The standby light should be blinking a repeated pattern. That info will indicate the problem circuit and allow us to provide you with the proper parts/steps to resolve this.
This is a convergence problem. Look in the back for a couple of large black ICs attached to a heatsnik. These should be marked STKxxx. These are the convergence ICs and either have bad connections or are defective. If you can solder, try resoldering the pins on these ICs. If that fails to resolve the problem, replace the ICs. There may be other parts that need to be replaced as well. I'll look up your model to find the other parts to check. The convergence board as an assembly, I believe, is no longer available. The parts that you require are available.
just need to balance the three colors red,green and blue that may help remove the front covers and look for black module that have sccree and focus controls just move a little bet left or right be carefull because you can loos the picture e-mail me for more info
I pressed "Demo" on the front of my TV and it worked, I have an old Sony KP-53XBR35 VIDEOSCOPE XBR - no original remote and the Universal remote has PIP button but would not shut it off.
Finally it's off!!!!
