Sony BRAVIA KDL40XBR 40 in. LCD TV - Answered Questions & Fixed issues

They for the most part only sell boards for these--the error codes can be misleading in many ways---suggest you Google the model number and see what boards are in it and what they cost to decide if set is worth a shop repair or not.

Please specify the fault?

Sony BRAVIA... | Answered on Jan 20, 2012 | 136 views

am having same issue, and this is what I have learned, so far: Apparently, some of the earlier Bravias (mine is a 2006) has an issue with the F1 and F2 fuses on the Digital Tuner card. I decided to bite the bullet and open up the tv. The back came off fairly easily, and the card is in plain view. I believe it to be the same card that the coaxial connects to. There are two data connectors, top and bottom. after you free the card by undoing the screws, you will want to disconnect the bottom first by simply depressing the center of the connector and gently tugging to disconnect. The top data ribbon is a bit strange... the top of the connector rocks to one side, and the ribbon simply falls out. My card is part number A1164341A and is used on several of the tvs. I found it on Ebay for 10 bucks, inspected and tested. I just bought the card, so I don't know for sure that this is the problem, but I am fairly confident from what i have found out from researching the problem

Hi Sherry, you can test your remote control to see if all the keys work correctly
Take your cell phone, put in camera mode and point the emitting LED of the remote control towards the camera,
press the keys, one at a time and see if the emitting LED is illuminated, if so, try the volume up key, if the light does not turn on, you could carefully disassemble the remote control and clean the contacts and the keyboard internally rubber,
Do not use alcohol to clean
the rubber keyboard, you can clean it with warm water and detergent then let it dry very well,
the contact plate, you can use a cloth with some liquid to clean the glass,
the idea is to remove the rubber residue on the contacts
then arm again and test, but you have results consult a specialized technical service
I hope you find the suggestion useful
Greetings Franco Dosil

Hola Sherry, puedes probar tu control remoto para saber si todas la teclas funcionan correctamente
Toma tu celular, pon en modo camara y apunta el Led emisor del control remoto hacia la camara,
presiona las teclas, una por vez y fijate si se ilumina el Led emisor, si es asi, prueba la tecla de subir el volumen, si no se prende la luz, podrias desarmar con cuidado el control remoto y limpiar internamente los contacto y el teclado de goma,
No Uses Alcohol para limpiar
el teclado de goma, lo puedes limpiar con agua tibia y detergente luego dejalo secar muy bien,
la placa de los contactos, puedes usar un pa?o con un poco de liquido para limpiar los vidrios,
la idea es sacar el residuo de goma que hay sobre los contactos
luego arma nuevamente y prueba, sino tienes resultados consulta a un servicio tecnico especializado
Espero te resulte util la sugerencia
Saludos Franco Dosil

To perform a reset you will need to disconnect the TV completely from power for at least 30 seconds, if this doesn't resolve your problem then you may have hardware that has expired in your device. Without physically looking at your device I can't say with certainty what your problem is, it could be your PCB. There are video's online you can visit on how to test a PCB for faults.
If you are not comfortable troubleshooting your device I would suggest contacting a local electronic repair shop near you, however I will link you to a generic instructional video showing you how to perform basic troubleshooting of your device.

Hope this helps,

Although I am just guessing, most Sony equipment uses metric screws. Go to a Home Depot or similar store and take the piece that you have that contains the threaded fittings and they will help you find the screws you need. This page of the manual gives some info about the screws such as not longer than 1/2" (or 12mm) to prevent damage to the set. Sony customer service may be able to supply replacement screws too.
