Question about Sony BRAVIA XBR 52 in. LCD Flat-Panel HDTV

Open Question

Ghost image When my Sony Bravia XBR 52 in. ia turned on, I have ghosting on the left side of the screen. The ghosting problem seems to get less as the set is left on. After approximately 35 minutes the picture clears up and the picture is fine. A friend of mine suggest it may be a thermo problem or something.

Its a TAB bond Problem with the LCD. You can take apart the TV and install a rubber Bumper to put pressure on the TAB. TAB bonds always get worse... I dont know how long it will solve the issue... but u can get a little more life out of it.
Rember when working with the TV the voltages can kill!!
Heres a link to see someone fixing.
I have the same TV...same problem...common problem...unless u ask Sony.

Michael, does the ghosting go away of you tap the set? Or if you turn off the set and let it cool off and turn it back on, is the ghosting still here? One of the most common causes of ghosting or double image problem is due to a defective LCD panel tab. Sony's are known for this problem. I would recommend getting a diagnoses done on the set to be sure. If it turns out to be a LCD tab problem, the only true fix is to replace the panel.

if this was a projection type tv the cause is in the convergence section. it could be bad convergence ic or a change in value resistor which mean the resistance get high.

I have Sony bravia XBR and right side the screen is more darker and have lost color. Any idea. please help if u can.


my guess is that the right side of the t-con board/LCD control unit if failing. this board controls video drive on screen 2 processors on the circuit 1 for right the other for left. if this does not fix then the problem is going to be the display it-self which is not cost effective to repair. Hope this helps some.

Also before replacing anything clean all ribbon cables between main board and lcd control unit and between the lcd control and panel.

can clean with pencil eraser. board location

main unit - circuit to the left or middle usually have inputs on it.
LCD control- top and center with 2-4 ribbons leaving the top and going to the screen.

hope this helps.

When we turn on our tv in the morning the left


Call Sony my friend. I have the same exact issue with the same model. They already have a recall for the 46"XBR4. Let Sony know that us 52" owners are having the same issue. I'm essentially calling them everyday until they fix it.

How long can you leave the 52" sony bravia on for?


I recommend that all big screens get turned off when not in use for 10 minutes.
Some sets have screen savers, some don't. Also, when plugged in and turned on they are susceptible to power spikes, another reason to turn it off.
