Question about Sony Bravia KDL-46V4100 46 in. LCD HDTV

Open Question

My 46 inch Sony Bravia, intermittently, when changing channels will lose the sound. I did an update onit recently and that seemed to take care of the problem until it did it again last night. Since we have satellite TV, I turned off the TV and when I turned it back on, the sound came back. I spent too much to not be able to listen. Any ideas?

    It appears that the issue may be with the satellite box. I reset it and haven't yet been able to recreate the issue. I may have to get another box. I will keep you posted.

SOURCE: sony bravia intermittent sound

Yep, same problem with mine. After many trial fixes, I discovered that it's the HDMI connection. I tried two different new HDMI cables in two of HDMI ports on the TV, but still got intermittent sound. The only way I solved it was going to component cables (RGB) with a separate audio cable. Works great now. Other Web sites say that HDMI connections do not always electronically "handshake" well between devices. Not sure how this HDMI problem can be permanently fixed, but using the component connection works fine.

A 4 flash indicates you have a backlight problem. Either the backlight inverter boards have failed or you have a backlight that has failed in the LCD panel. You will need a technician to check the set to determine which is the problem.

Hi my sony bravia kdl-46v4100 model is decresing sound before i use 20% volume to hear it but now i use 40% of volume. What should i do? Can you guys help me? Thanks!


It's probably a station channel, channels broadcast different picture and sound quality, therefore when changing channels this can be noticable. It is probably not a tv problem.

I have a 46 inch Sony Bravia 46 XBR4 set. The right side went out only colored lines appear. The rest of the screen is fine. email address GLCSS19@AOL.COM.


Sounds like the tcon (timing control) board. Sometimes unplugging the LVDS cables from the tcon, cleaning and reconnecting solves this. The catches on the LVDS cables are easily damaged and must be handled carefully.

With my Sony Bravia 46" xbr the screen keeps cutting out. I'm usig hdmi cables and can't find a reason why te tv keeps cutting out. The sound still remains but picture doesn't. Not even out technician can...


Usually this happens to my set when I am in HD cable channel mode after being on a non-digital ANALOG channel.

I basically reset the TV by changing to a DIGITAL cable channel -- stay on that channel for ten-twenty seconds -- then I switch back DIRECTLY to a HD channel (key in channel number directly on remote).

TV works fine -- seems to be a glitch when the TV changes modes from Analog to HD

just plug your satellite and dvd player in to your tv. and simply take an extra set of red, white, yellow wires and us use the red and white wires to connect fron your tv output to your surround sound system's input. now you should have surround sound for everything included local tv stations from your tv antenna

We lose audio on our Sony BRAVIA KDL-52W4100


This problem appears to be an issue with numerous Sony Bravia owners of the same model. Although still seeking a soulution, it would appear that our cable provider (Verizon) has replaced all of their components and the Geek Squad from Best Buy where we purchased the unit, points the finger at Verizon. None of our other Fios-equipped TV's exhibit this problem so I am glad we bought the service plan with the TV and will continue to seek a remedy.

Picture freezes on Sony Bravia 46 in


this can be a weak signal check the connections on cables. also in hot weather you can get a build up of static electricity and it will need to be discharged, turn off tv at mains and cross the connector and the cables if you have a buster or other box connected to them turn off and do the same to them. use something metal but make sure there is no power to them.

Television confusion


You're changing the panel? I wouldn't recommend a consumer doing a panel swap, as it is very easy to mess things up.
