Issue#159: Sony - dark shadow / stain on SONY KDL 46V-3000 screen

  • hello,

    I have an old SONY KDL 46V-3000 and recently I've noticed this dark shadow / stain on it, does anyone know what this is and if there's a cheap fix ? I think it's getting worse, I was watching a movie the other night and I kept noticing it. Note that in the following picture, the yellow ball is the camera's flash, you can see the stain beside it (it actually has two parts, looks a bit like a fold of cloth):

    I know the TV is very old but I'd like to keep it at least 1 more year...thanks for any help !

  • Issue#948291: Sony - ISSUE WITH MY KDL-55W850A AFTER 2 YEARS - SCREEN GOES BLANK SPEND 60000 to fix

    Hi, we are a fan of brand SONY for long years and now that is lost being facing bad experiences with SONY products. We have a TV KDL-55W850A which went on blank screen recently and it’s just above two years and now the service guy who came to inspect is saying that it costs 60000 which is just near half price we paid to buy it and it’s very bad to see this SONY product going bad. We bought TV, PlayStation and Blu-ray player all with trust in SONY. One of my cousins also had spending lot of money on repairs. This is a huge drawback for us where we earn just enough amounts and the price is TV is our two months income. And now just in 2years we have to spend 60000 more on it. This is very bad experience for us which are making us to think on SONY product quality. Please provide some reasonable alternatives for customers in case of such issues. Thank you.

  • Issue#58156: Sony Bravia KDL-52WL135 Vertical Lines Issue

    Hi everyone, First time poster here and I need some help with my sony bravia KDL-52WL135. I previously replaced the FB1 (main video) board due to no picture or sound when turning on the set and the TV worked great for many months after replacing it. However, now there is green vertical lines spanning across the display as shown in the attached picture. I've tried replacing the T-Con board thinking it had an issue but the result remained the same. Does anyone have an idea of what it could be? Perhaps its the replacement FB1 board acting up? Thanks for any suggestions. Attached Thumbnails

I am also unsure as to if there is still a warranty on the television. Please help. Lastly, does anyone know usually how much it would cost to repair the pixel issue? Thanks.

  • Issue#376095: Sony - KDL-55W800c stuck on update screen

     I bought a new KDL-55W800c Sony TV and I went through the initial setup without any issues. About 3hrs into using the TV it went off by itself. Ever since it acted irrationally. I was told to do the firmware upgrade by a Sony service rep. I started the update it went to a screen that shows a "do not unplug" symbol and a rotating arrow. It's been stuck on that screen for over 5 hours and I can't get it to do anything(rotating arrow stopped after 30mins). The light at the bottom of the screen started out flashing white and eventually turned to a solid blueish purple. I have power cycled over and over with the same outcome! What can I do next to make it finish the updater? Thanks -Ladi

  • Issue#457397: Sony - The LCD screen and viewfinder issue

    The LCD screen and viewfinder on my new A77II go dark when I tried shooting on manual with a fixed ISO 100, f 11 and 1/125 and using an external flash in a studio. I was not able to see at all what I wanted to shoot, even though the studio was not at all dark. M.M. -2.0 appears on the screen, which is the metering mode, but I have no way of changing it to be able to see through the LCD/VF. Taking photos blindly, the images come out just fine, like I would need them. But I need to see what I´m shooting at just as with a normal viewfinder and not how the image would turn out!! Nikon and Canon cameras had no problem with this. Help!

  • Issue#473282: Sony - KDL-40WD653 BBC apps issue

    I have a KDL-40WD653 (2016 model). It has an issue whereby after loading one of the BBC apps a few times (e.g. the iPlayer app), subsequent attempts to start the app results in a brief loading animation followed by a black screen, and then nothing else. I can exit out by pressing the HOME button, but I have to power off at the wall to get the BBC apps working again. I have noticed a Sony issue announcement: - however it makes no mention of what issue the announcement relates to. Does anyone know what specific issue the Sony announcement relates to, and is there an easier way to "reboot" the TV than powering off at the wall? Thanks.

  • Issue#485017: Sony - Glowing blueish-white light that flashes up from the bottom middle of the screen (KDL-65W850C

    I have a Bravia KDL-65W850C. There has been a glowing blue light which flashes into the lower 25% of the picture (shaped like a half moon). The flash lasts for about 1 second and can occur SEVERAL times an hour. Typically it occurs a few times a day. It happens when watching TV (via HDMI), Netflix, Amazon, other Apps, other input source such as a PS4 (via HDMI), streaming video over my LAN or playing video via the USB port. It seems to occur more frequently when streaming video over my local network or playing video via the USB port. It occurs with the same frequency for both native Android capability and 3rd party Apps such as KODI, VLC, Archos, etc. Self-Diagnostics indicate that everything is OK.The TV has been updated with the latest Android version. This issue has increasingly become a giant nuisance. Any help is greatly appreciated!
