I have horizontal lines on part of my TV screen.
Hi all - Hopefully someone out there might be a little bit more helpful than the Sony Troubleshooting Guide:
Sony Bravia Model No: KDL-47W805A
Only yesterday a number of horizontal lines appeared on my TV screen, only the lower 1/3 portion of the screen though. They intermittently flicker between 1/3 of the screen having visible lines to only the top three of four lines.
I have attached two pictures below which I hope go some way to demonstrating the issue.
So far I have:
1: Switched the TV off for a period of time and then switched it back on - The lines still appear.
2: Removed all the connecting cables (Amazon, HDMI, Cable) and then switched it back on again - The lines still appear.
3: Conducted a factory reset - The lines still appear.
4: Applied pressure along the edges of the TV where the lines appear - No change, the lines are still visible, no distortion to them. Although this might seem strange I read somewhere that if there is a loose connection along the LCD connectors applying pressure might confirm this is the lines change with the application of pressure.
5: Given up :(
