I have a 2008 Bravia KDL-46S4100 with colored vertical lines over the left half of the screen. It is intermittent, but gets worse the longer the tv is on. It has been suggested that this is not repairable, as it will cost about as much to fix as to purchase a new tv. Any suggestions?
Thanks for the message. Follow the steps below to troubleshoot the TV.
Do a Power Reset.
1. Turn off the TV.
2. Unplug the power cord of the TV from the electrical outlet.
3. Let the TV remain without power for 60 seconds.
4. Plug the power cord back into the electrical outlet.
5. Turn on the TV.
If the issue is unresolved after performing power reset, connect a different video source (ex. cable box, DVD player, Blu-ray player or gaming console) to the TV. If still getting the issue on a different video source, that may be an indication that the TV needs service. You may refer to this link to locate the nearest Sony authorized service center in your area.
