Thin green verical line in lower right hand corner of LCD TV

I ahve a Sony Bravia Model KDLV40XBR1 LCD TV. In the past few days I have noticed a thin green vertical line. I have an extended warranty through Tweeter but, of course, they have gone out of business. Sony is will to send a tech out but I have a feeling I will have to pay for repairs. Any suggestions? Thanks so much.

Either the cable or a connection from the processor to the screen is not making contact. If it is just a cable connection, that can probably just be re-seated. If it is a problem on the board, it probably is not worth it. Find out what their minimum charge and their hourly rate is, then see what a new TV costs. You will probably get a new TV instead.

I would bet on it being a panel issue, you can try a new t-con but I don't think its going to correct it, may be time to buy a new set

SOURCE: thin vertical red line

This maybe the symptom of a bad Panel. One Vertically This line is 99% bad panel. Call your warranty provider or SONY tech support if purchased under 2 years.

SOURCE: my plasma has a thin black horizontal line

You can either have a bad Y-Upper buffer board, or dirty contacts on the plug associated with the horizontal line. Best to have a service company look at it.

SOURCE: My Sony bravia 40

other than a software upgrade. it probably a graphics chip malfunction and will need replacement.

These can be replaced but costly. Does it do the same if you use screen as a pc monitor?

If the line is present in all inputs and modes, there is a problem with the LCD Panel. The only way to fix it is to replace the whole LCD Panel which is very expensive (usually around $1000+ for 40" Sony). Unless the TV in under warranty, it is usually around the same price for a new TV.

Testimonial: "Thanks for the response. The service company Sony recommended told me it was probably the screen, too, and they quoted $1000."

SOURCE: thin vertical line runs across the top of screen

Hi my name is Roety,
I can help you with your issue ,
 Try the format, aspect buttons on the Box remote, if the line is there on every input and effect the TV menu your panel (screen) is bad.
A new panel would cost as much as a new TV.

Thin green vertical lines


if its only one channel its your cable service, if its constant try unpluging your tv from the wall for 30 seconds to reset it, also try reconnecting any AV cables for the source you are using, If you are using a Coaxial cable unscrew it and check to see the copper needle is not bent or damaged.

52" Sony Bravia TV has a thin Blue line down left


A line on an LCD screen can be cause by the screen itself going bad or the T-con board. The T-con board the attached to the screen on the backside and covered by a heatshield. If you get teh part number from it you can find it online from one of the many retails that might have it. Like www.interliquidparts.com

Hi,
I'm sorry, it sounds problem with lcd panel (screen) that is defective and causing lower half distorted image. If tv is under warranty then call number written on warranty documents for warranty cover or lcd panel (screen) replacement would cost you approx 80% of new tv price.
Hope these info will help you.

I have a Sony 26 inch Bravia LCD tv model KDL-V26XBR1.It has thin vertical black and yellow lines about an inch apart across the whole display. Not noticeable from a distance but really see them up...


Well if the panel is bad it would not clear up in any situation, so its not the panel. most likely the t-con board or just poor connections inside. Julio Millenium TV in Las Vegas.

Line thru screen


The LCD Panel must be replaced to fix both problems. The cost in doing this would exceed the value of the set. I recommend not putting the money into it.

Thin vertical line


You are going to find it is a LCD panel problem. I am sure that they will take care of you. But also realize that this could have happen to any brand of LCD panel and you will probably not have any other panel issues once it is fixed.

I have a Sony Bravia KDL-32v2500, 16 months old, a thin vertical green line has appeared just off centre. It is on all channels and all input sources. Any suggestions?


If it still under warranty, no cost will be there, but if its out of warranty, you have to pay to Sony (might be they give you some discount) because its problem in LCD Panel.

First, HORIZONTAL CENTER.
1) Press MENU.
2) Scroll to SETTINGS.
3) Scroll to SCREEN.
4) Go to HORIZONTAL CENTER. Move the picture to the right. Hopefully, the line will go away. Otherwise, there is a problem with the pixels or the signal processor. Call 1-800-222-SONY. Or, http://eservice.sony.com. Have a high-limit credit card handy for out of warranty repairs. Sorry about that.
