Having problems with your Flat Panel Televisions ?

I am having the same problem with my 3 yr old 52 inch Bravia HD LCD TV. The right side of screen starts out darker than the left side and then in about 5 minutes it brightens on the right and has horizontal lines for another 10 minutes. Then suddenly the whole screen pops on and the picture is fine. Is this a simple fix or an expensive one? I'm very disappointed as we paid big $$ for this set from Circuit City. Sony should be backing up their product with this problem. I have posts all ove

This sounds like the same problem I have with my 52" Sony KDL52XBR6. Its probably the TCON panel. Sony apparently knows of the problem but will not assist, I've tried. To make matters worse they don't sell the components and everywhere I have tried they are out of stock. My past number is 404652ASNC6LV4.5 they call it a LCD Controller. Just Google the issue and you can find youtube videos that show the same problem.
To be honest, it won't be a cheap repair. You could be looking at an aging backlight inverter or possibly the CCFL bulbs that light your tv are aging as well. The backlight inverter would be nearly $60-$90 and the CCFL bulbs are close to $20 each @ 12-14 of them.

We lost remote control on Emerson HDTV. Picture format doesn't fill the entire screen. We scrolled thru the menu using buttons along the bottom of tv, and tried going to "picture" and scrolled through each option including personal, standard, movie and game. None of these filled the screen. There are big gaps on either side of the picture. We just want to watch tv with the entire screen filled.

Hi, I purchased a Sony Bravia model #KDL-52S4100 two years ago. About 7 months ago when the TV was turned on there was no picture for 15 minutes or so, then when you turn it off and on again half a picture will show with larger images on the right hand side of the screen. Other times there is half a picture and then when you turn it off it will come on with a full screen picture. Once it warms up the picture is fine. Is there any inexpensive solutions here? Thanks for any help you can provide.

I have had my Sanyo DP46848 for 3 years now. Shortly after moving about a year ago my TV began to mess up. When I first turn my TV on the left side of the TV is mostly black and the picture that you can see on the left side of the screen has very bad ghosting effects. The blackness seems to be in 3 horizontal bars covering the whole height of my TV. The right 1/3 of the TV looks normal and the right side has never looked wrong.
