     Hi all!   I have been diagnosing what is wrong with my Sony bravia KDL-46XBR4 and took the entire t-con board off of the panel to inspect it. I decided to create a solder bridge across the top of the fuse because it appeared that the fuse may be bad. When I did so and hooked it up there was...

    Sorry in advance if this has been covered but I can't seem to find a thread with a similar problem. I purchased my Sony in 2008. It has worked flawlessly until a few days ago. Before that I had the set unplugged and sitting upright on a couch for 2 weeks. I also had a Sanus mount attached...

    Hi, I have a Sony KDL 46XBR4 and the speakers are cutting in and out. This happened once before and I read another fourm about a process (remote control) that solved it, unfortunately I can't find my notes on how to duplicate the process again. Does anyone else have an idea?

    Hello Everyone, Last winter I started to notice problems with the picture of my 46" XBR4. Thankfully the problem was covered by a recall and I had a new panel put in the set in the spring. Lately I have noticed a lot of pixelation(for lack of the known term). This happens mostly with quicker...

    I purchased a Sony KDL-46XBR4 for HD viewing of the DirecTV satellite signals via one of its HDMI inputs. Recently, to view local sports, I subscribed to a local cable station, it's input being via the "TV" (rf) connection on the television. The video via the rf connection is good, but the...
