Suddenly, I am unable to connect to the internet for Netflix, YouTube, etc. It worked a few days ago.

I get to Network Setup is now complete and the 3 OKs. When I select OK, it sys "Configuration failed while connecting. There is no link. Please check the cables." (There are no cables - it's wireless.)

I've not changed anything in my setup. I've tried everything - reset TV, reset cable modem and router...

Could there have been a software update that is causing it?

Any ideas? cb

What worked for me was unplugging the power cord from the TV then reset cable modem and router.

I have been using a screen cleaner ordered from Monoprice and it has been working fine for last few times. I was trying to clean my screen yesterday and it left the screen with very bad streaks. It looks like it took the coating off the gorilla glass in some parts. Would anyone know what I can do to get rid of this? TIA for any help. I have tried plain water mixed with vinegar, ammonia free glass cleaner to no avail. I am attaching a picture for reference.

Yikes! There's really not much you can do. That definitely looks like you took some of the coating off. If you DID take part of the coating off, you have 2 options, leave it, or take the rest of it off so it looks even. You'll get more glare though.

I think even the manual warns against using anything but a soft cloth dampened slightly with water.

For future reference (and other TV owners), the safest way to clean a modern TV screen is to use a soft brush first (or blower brush like the ones made for camera lenses) if there's a decent amount of dust. For fingerprints/smudges, use a clean microfiber cloth dampened slightly with distilled water (no contaminants to leave a residue). If you have a Zero Water pitcher, filtered water that measures '0' to 6ppm is also pretty contaminant free.

Never scrub hard. It can take the coating off. Never wash the screen cleaning cloth in a washing machine or use laundry detergent. Many laundry detergents have additives that will leave a residue on the cloth that can cause streaks or even scratches.

If necessary, hand wash the cleaning cloth with a small amount of blue Dawn dishwashing liquid and drip dry.

So after 3 years just wondering how the Sony NX810 is holding up for you people? Mine is still great, but never did use the 3D much, so waste of money IMO.

Mine is holding up very well (knock on wood) and it has survived moving to three different locations. No problems at all and I do use the 3D

That's great, I see no reduction in the LEd colors after 3 years either.

So I am thinking about selling mine and buying an 80" how much do you think is reasonable? Amazon is showing used from about $1650 and up.

I had looked into this as well and was very surprised to see how much these were selling for. I don't think this is true but almost seems as if there is a demand for them still like collectors items. You could try $1,600 but I have a feeling it will never sell for that. If I knew nothing about the TV I would not pay more than $500.

Hi,

 

I have KDL55NX810 - automatically rebooting after few seconds of display, it appears that power supply problem and many of them ran into same issue. I am trying to open the back cover removed all the back side screws somewhere is still holding, is there a latch or something?  

 

Thanks and appreciate your input.

Hey guys hoping you can help. I have an nx810 55 inch. I noticed that when I get up close during playback or when its in the Eco standby mode (switch on right lower back side is on) but the TV is off, there's a buzzing sort of power noise. Is this electric buzz sound normal when the TV is on or when its off in standby mode?

Thanks

On my 52nx800 you remove the 6 total along each side, two near the bottom mount, the 4 wall mount screws, and
2 more near the input panel. Then just pull from the bottom up and it will pop off, take a bit of force and makes a popping sound as you release the clips/tabs.

For those of you with a 2 blink led code, or random resets or other power board codes, here is a common fix that worked for my set when the power board went down.

2 blinks indicates power board fault. I fixed my board by replacing MOSFETs q6101 and q6102 (replacement part FQPF9N50CF 9 amp, 500 volt can be ordered via mouser) and fusible resistor r6536 (0.47 ohm. 1/2 watt ordered from amazon) on the power board. The MOSFETs fail and the resistor blows to protect the rest of the circuit. This fix works on ex500, ex600, nx800 series sets and others, and is a common failure, the board locations and numbering will be different for other power boards but the same parts fail on many of these sets.

My 60nx810 is still going strong. I paid a boatload for it so it better. Plus I have te3h 5 year warranty so 1 year to go. Not much in the way of 3-D for my taste so never use it.
It was just great watching avatar, the demo and couple other things. ESPN 3d was ok while it lasted. The active glasses are uncomfortable and lousy. Hard to watch anything for more than 10 minutes. I wear glasses so its really hard to watch. It came with the TV...I would have bought the TV w/o 3-d if that's how it came.

I was looking at my network selections on the TV and noticed that almost all of the selections were Sony Entertainment based or the generic network sites for social media. I linked with the Sony tech group on the web site, and asked how I could add my own selections. To my amazement the tech said I couldn't change the selections. I couldn't add any .tv selections I wanted and that was the limitation of the product. I'm wondering if there is a consumer rights issue here? Sony has basically prevented me from looking at other web tv selections except their own! What gives here?

I had an similar issue, but then even though I could update content, the TV Guide feature would show 'no data' I did a factory reset which is as follows:
Step 1

Press the "Power" button on your set's remote control. Wait a few seconds for the picture to appear.

Step 2

Press and hold the up arrow on the remote control. This button is located close to the middle of the remote surrounding the "Enter" button. Simultaneously press and hold the "Power" button.

Step 3

Continue to press and hold the "Power" and up-arrow buttons while the television turns itself off and then back on. Release the buttons after the set reboots.

You will need to reprogram your channels, settings, etc, but it solved this problem for me. TV Guide works fine now. Other than that issue, my 46 NX810 still looks amazing after 3 years. Beautiful picture. Beautiful TV.

I hope this helps. Good luck,
Jon

SO now Sony, DirecTV and Imax are no longer supporting the 3D channel. Would have been nice to have had all the 3D movies that have come out play on that Channel. Maybe then the viewership would have been higher.............. Just sayin.......

Sony's monolithic is aesthetically the best looking tv of all time...they needs to bring it back in their new sets.

I'm planning to upgrade to the Sharp 80" but man their designs really have much to desire...

Is the stand model SU46NX1? I bought that for my 46NX810 but it doesn't at all line up with the TV; I deduced that it was only for the NX800 rather than the 810. Sucks, I was really excited to have that stand. I think it's still in my garage, if there's a way to make it work. It did nick the bottom of the front of my beautiful monolithic surface though, was never thrilled about that. Constant reminder.

my NX810 is still going great. remember you have to do preventative maintenance to keep these TV's trouble free. I talked to a guy who repairs these and he says the main problem is dust accumulating on the inside. Every year or so you have to take off the back and vacuum it out. I know its a PITA to take the back off. I posted the link to the service manual to show how to do it in this thread. If your TV malfunctions more than likely its the main board. Also check the power board for bulging caps. If you are handy with a multimeter the service manual tells what voltages the power board are suppose to put out

Where can we find the service manual?

My 46NX810 is working great. It's still got one of the best PQ I have ever seen on a TV. I did notice we just got an update. It's now Pkg 5.054 I haven't noted any real changes in anything.


I still use my TV's 3D capabilities, I buy almost every new 3D offering available. I just added "Transformers, Age of Extinction" and "Captain America, Winter Solider" to my collection.
Tron and World War Z are must see's on these TV's especially if you have a nice sound system.

I recently bought a Bravia KDLNX810 and some 3D Blu-rays look great, and others have ghosting/crosstalk issues that make them unwatchable.

I'm using a Sony TMR-BR100 3D Sync Transmitter, and I've tried with three different types of 3D glasses.

Sony TDG-BR250/B
PlayStation 3 3D Glasses
XPAND X105-IR-X1

The Sony TDG-BR250/B's were pretty bad since they're not polarized and crosstalk would really be bad if you tilted your head. The Playstation 3 glasses were pretty good until my dog got a hold of them, and now the XPAND seem to work great for a few movies, but not others.

I'm using a Son BDP-S590 Blu-ray Player and all of my software on the TV seems to be up to date.

The Lego Movie and Transformers: Age of Extinction look great, but Brave, Titanic and IMAX: Space Station have so much ghosting/crosstalk, they're unwatchable. I've tried adjusting pretty much all of the settings on the TV, including the 3d Depth Adjustment. Sometimes setting it to -1 helps a bit for certain, but with Brave, anytime there's something in the background that's black, white and/or gray, the ghosting is awful.

Thanks for any help in advance, but does anyone have any suggestions?

Can anyone tell me if they have a gap between the glass panel and the plastic back cover that's slightly larger near the right rear controls? I noticed the gap seems so be bigger here and there are 3 black sticky things in the gap. Pic attached
You can see the black sticky stuff in the middle of the vertical silver line in the gap.
