First time poster so bear (bare) with me. I was given a free Sony KDL 55ex710 55" LED TV today that has some problems. My sister told me it just stopped turning on one day.
When i press the power switch i hear the tv click on
It has a solid green light when i power it on...
We bought our Sony LCD (KDL-52XBR4) in 2007 (2008 maybe?) and had been working fine until about 9 months ago. About 9 months ago, we noticed the occasional thin red vertical line (like a pixel width or so) showing up on the left hand side of the image. It didn't matter what source was in use...
Just wondering how many other people have experienced the same thing as I have on here?
I've had quite a few comments telling me similar experiences.
Is there a "bandgate" situation here, a systemic problem with the manufacturing of LCD tvs that the big brands are trying to down play?
