Sony kdl-46xbr8, reset all settings, software update, nothing helped, all hdmi ports doing the same, the GUI does not have this issue so I know it's not the LCD screen, it happens only on hdmi


I had this happen and know what you are talking about. The tech guy talked me over the phone on how to fix it. He said the problem was a hang up issue, like the hdmi ports actually hang up the line like a phone call. He had me turn off the auto detect settings that talk to the other components and share info with each other. Then he had me reset the TV. It was a while ago so I may have reset the TV first then turned off the auto detect settings. Play around with it and I bet you will get it figured out.

We have a Sony Bravia KDL-40V3000 flat screen television. About 6 months ago, the screen started displaying white, green and black vertical lines and dots. This continued for a few weeks and then the...


It's a connection inside the TV that's faulty. It could be as simple as reseating the ribbon cables that connect the control board to the glass display. Or it could be that the fault is on the board and needs to be replaced. The fact that the problem comes and goes should tell you it's fixable.

Model# kdl-40w4100 Serial # 8051767 2 years old Horizontal lines in 4.5 inch blocks at the top of the screen


I have the same tv model KDL-40W4100 and around the same age. At the moment I have 16 of
these horizontal lines over the entire screen and they seem to be grouped into 2 lines per row. They are also around 4 inches and two pixel rows high. I have been looking over the Internet for months and found nothing to troubleshooting this issues. In the last few weeks more and more of these groups of lines have been showing up and now i am up to 16 of them and it is becoming unwatchable. Any help from anyone would be greatly appreciated. I also attached a picture to describe it better. Thanks!

You should have a 1 year warranty from Sony. Call them before it expires. This is probably a LCD panel issue.

Lines on tv screen


Both sound like bad LCD panels. The following must be answered to confirm this:
Do the lines appear on all inputs/all signal sources?
Can they be seen in the OSD/menu?
If yes to both questions, it is likely that the LCD panel is bad
