KDl32L 4000 TV does not go thru boot up

by kdsjn / January 1, 2013 3:51 AM PST

TV turns on immediately without Bravia insignia showing. Results are poor picture & contrast, hard to read menu text. Problem started when tv refused to turn on and had trouble light flashing a possible code without staying on Then it stopped trying to check itself and flashes no codes. just comes on with the poor picture.

Downloaded manual but it does not give a good troubleshooting guide. Reset to factory specs several times with no success

The service manuals I use

Tell me which board to swap out. I've seen newer techs that call those diagnostic trees no good. A longer chat finds they expected fixes or repairs that didn't involve changing boards.
