I have a three year old KDL-52W5100 TV on which the display seems to have crapped out. It doesn't make any difference which input is selected, or even when trying to use internet video services, it's unwatchable.
Everything is powered through a surge suppressor and a Belkin home-theater power supply w/backup battery.
Attached is a short movie clip of the issue.
I'm hoping it's just a "circuit board" and not the panel itself, or else I'm probably going to be in the market for a whole new unit.
Any advice is appreciated. -- ~Help Find a Cure for Cancer~ ~Proud Member of Team Discovery ~
I had a KDL-46V5100 that would not synch with HDMI connected and was randomly dropping signal. I disposed of it, as the cost and inconvenience of replacement was too much. -- Need-based health care not greed-based health care.
1. Turn on the TV. 2. Wait approximately 40 seconds for the TV to completely start up. 3. On the TV remote control, press and hold the UP ARROW button. 4. While holding the UP ARROW button, press and release the POWER button on the TV set.
I'm surprised Sony didn't suggest trying this when I called support earlier.
Now It's working!!
Thanks for the links and suggestions. -- ~Help Find a Cure for Cancer~ ~Proud Member of Team Discovery ~
thats "heat pressed" to the display panel. not exactly very easy to redo that with heat unless there is a replacement fresh ribbon and you have the correct tool to perform the task. the same tool that was used to fix the old beepers could be used here and it would work without a replacement ribbon but its not likely going to last very long. for a short time, i was "rebuilding" display panels but many of them would fail within 30 days since just applying heat to the surface ribbon would only create a temporary fix anyway. -- Suffolk County NY Police Feed - »www.scpdny.com PS3 Gaming Feed - »www.livestream.com/elitedata
