Hi guys and gals...


I purchased a SONY KDL-46W4100 about a month ago. Love it, looks great and runs nicely.


Yesterday I hooked up an ONKYO HT-S6100. Now my CableBox doesn't do HDMI, but does do Component. However I never hooked my CableBox up to my receiver, it is still connected straight into the HDTV itself.


Yesterday I was getting some BLACK lines going through the entire TV set, don't know what the problem was but it seems to have fixed itself for now on that issue. FYI those lines were going diagonally.


I turned the HDTV and receiver off last night before I went to bed. Because everything was working fine then.


I wake up this morning and am now getting WHITE vertical lines throughout the HDTV set. Kind of looks like a bunch od dead pixels possibly. But this set is so new that I shouldn't be having this issue.


What could be causing this?


I have looked at the connections and they are tight. Also it is happening on different HDTV Inputs.

you dont have coax or toslink on ur cable box either? And what does ur receiver have to do with the lines?


You may try updating ur firmware or just call sony and hope for the best.

This happening to my 42" LG currently and sitting in the service centre for warranty parts. I just rang up this morning and i was told it is the upper board failure. I hope you send it back for warranty quick. I am not sure whether your problem same as mine, attach photo taken before i sent for warranty.

this thread is quite a few months old and yeah your upper board i'm guessing they are referring to the circuit board that is attached to the LCD screen itself is likely the cause to that problem. they will need to replace the whole LCD screen to fix that

oops... did not notice this thread already months.


Anyway thanks for your info.

I got this problem since the second week brand new. The technician came back, checked and told me it is my cable box, not to leave it turn on round the clock. He advice me to turn off everything when not in use. It works for several months and finally the vertical lines are there whether i leave it on or off throughout the night. LG reluctant to do one to one exchange since i used it for several months even though they have the record of my reports. So sad...


After they replace me New LCD and new circuit board what are the chances of failure again? is my tv going to be durable as new? very concern now

wow that sucks, I would't buy a LG even more so now that you mentioned that even though they knew about you having the problem for awhile and will not replace the TV, sony and samsung would definitely replace it from what I have read on here anything screen related they don't even bother with trying to fix busted displays they just give you a new TV


does your problem look like this?
