If its a setting first read the owner manual- I would look to see if remote has a format button or aspect etc---If do not have the manual with instructions Google the model number with "manual" and Sony on their site does offer these as well.

I would contact Sony customer service on the phone with the model number to see if this is a known issue or they have an answer--takes time but may be the best way.

You have a board connected on the side and another on top.. the board controls your horisontal lines and your side board controls your vertical.. Afte using the television for some time the board gets very hot and the solder gets damaged. You get what is called cold solder preventing the electrical current to pass. You need to retouch with solder but do it carefully. its best if you know some one with soldering experience. That will solve your problem. you can get more details at www.bestdirectorysolutions.com

If this unit is no longer under warranty, carefully open up the back and reseat all of hte cables and connectors. The signal levels inside the set are extremely low and any poor connection to the panel can cause noise which can show up like this. Try reseating everything first. If that fails to resolve the problem, then one of the logic boards will need attention.

Hello,

This issue is related to a power problem in as much as the TV turns off on it's own. I think the TV has developed a power problem.

The problem is consistent with overheating on the power supply board of the TV.

The power supply board of the TV has few capacitors and IC. If any of these IC's gets short or become weak, it can cause the TV to turn off on it's own.

When current passes from electric outlet to the power supply board of TV. The current also goes to the weak/faulty part, then the current stops or slow and the board overheats and TV shuts off on it's own.

This problem may have occurred as a result of irregular power supply, or excess power supply or power surge.

This is a common problem faced by many other users too. To solve this issue, check the power supply board and read it with a meter and continuity tester, in order to detect the faulty part and replace the faulty part on the board which is short due to which power supply board.

Sony specifically uses GM1 Board. In other words, Sony power supply board is called "GM1 board"

It's a bit technical job but yes its not at all a costly repair to do or get it done by the technician.

You can buy this part at any Fry's or Radioshack store or you can order them online at vendors like "mcmelectronics.com"(look for electrolytic capacitors). After replacing these capacitor (capacitors) most likely the normal operation will be restored. Or you can buy a refurbished complete GM1 power board from shopjimmy.com to save you some stress.

If this task is too technical for you, you can call a family or friend who has the ability to assist you (two heads are better than one).

That means the connectors to the actual LCD element are damaged. It's unlikely anything can be done. If it is still under warranty you may be able to get it repaired.

Hello,

It's the problem of overheating in the power supply board of the TV.on the power supply board of the tv there are few capacitors and IC.any of this ic is got short or may be weak.so due to this when you start the TV the current passes from electric outlet to the power supply board of TV.but when the current passes from that weak/faulty part at that time current gets stopped or slow and the board overheats and TV shuts off. this is a common problem faced by many other users too.the possible option to solve this issue is to check the power supply board by a meter and continuity tester and replace the faulty component on the board which is short due to which power supply board is getting overheated.its bit technical job but yes its not at all a costly repair to do or get it done by the technician. for required parts it can be easily available from local electronic hardware shop.]

This will help in solving the problem...

HI.usually when problems occurs without picture, either slanted picture has vertical or horizontal light on it.The one responsible for this is what we called ..PICTURE-TUBE.It is a cathode -ray tube in the television receiver that translates the received signal into a picture on a luminescent screen.It is the picture tube who creates an image that is composed of identical horizontal lines.So any problems in regards to picture whether it only shows vertical or horizontal.its the PICTURE TUBE that was damaged.Hope this idea helps..Thank you for choosing fixya.

Must check by replacing "Input / source selector switch". Gets leaky by rusting sometimes.
