Were you able to fix this issue? I haven't had any issues with my Sony Bravia before and suddenly today, the screen turned to black with vertical lines. Any suggestions for fixing it?

I haven't had any issues with my Sony Bravia either, until this morning when I turning it on. It only shows White and Green horizontal lines or bars and it splits the pattern down the middle.

Anwar De Vos this "playing green and pink colour" is usually related to a bad panel. I doubt that this is due to overheating or water damage. Of course you do want to check if this is due to either a connection issues (loose or bad cables) or the source device. Tell us if you pull up a menu, does that look green and /or pink as well. Check all input sources i.e. DVD, HDMI, cable etc. Definitely try different cables as well since there were issues with HDMI ports etc. as well as remove your cable box if you have one and connect something like a DVD player directly to the TV. Also, try to reset the TV to factory default settings. This should work for your set:

1.Turn on the TV

2.Point the remote at the TV, press and hold the up arrow button.

3.While holding the up arrow on the remote, press the power button on the TV.

4.You will see the word reset on the TV screen and the TV will turn off and back on automatically.

5.Allow the TV to turn on completely and the set up screen will appear.

6. Follow the steps to set up the TV.

There is a chance that this could be caused by a bad T-Con board or a bad mainboard. Post some high res images of your boards as well as what the screen displays. with your question. That way we can see what you see. Use this guide for that.

While the screen shows green and white/pink horizontal bars, it can't show the "reset" on the screen. This procedure does not work. However, by unplugging the power input cable located on the rear side of the screen, on the right, and waiting about 10 seconds then reconnecting it, the TV will reboot and clear the issue.

Hey JD, just got a Sony Bravia and the same line appear as your problem. Yet, I don't understand your solution...can you explain further?

Hello there! I had the same issue with my Sony Bravia Tv and I found a solution on my tv manual. Check your tv coax cable and remove it. If that resolved the issue meaning you need to change coax. If your coax is rated 300 ohm, used 75 ohm instead. So far, i dont get the line anymore! SOLVED

Yes encountered the green and white stripe across the screen of my Sony Bravia TV. Simply, I disconnected the power source for about 10 seconds, after plugging it back up the TV went through the settings and returned to the previous settings without any issues. I am wondering if it is an indication a possible issue with the TV, it is approximately 2 years old.
