Bravia KLV-V32A10 Dots on Screen

Hi, just purchased a new Bravia LCD TV, KLV-V32A10, about 2 months ago. 2 days ago dots started to appear in vertical lines across the screen, rows of red, white & blue when the screen is dark or black. Does anyone know what the problem is, any fixes or is it terminal.

Have turned power off waited then back on, no effect

In reply to: so the power wont affect the image

Turning the power off didn't do anything, going to send the TV back for warranty repair. Not sure about the software update you mentioned previously. Thanks anyway

*** are you talking about? I doubt you have anything to teach me dude.

As far as the software update is concerned, you have to physically upload it to the tv using the firewire ports on the back of the tv. You have to also get your serial number and input that on the website to see if your tv was part of the recall.

power supplys the image

In reply to: ????

how does this not effect the image?

Im sure if you have a brown out the image will change somehow.

No worries...

In all technicality, power supplies power to any system, in this case the sony bravia in question. The image processing part gets taken care of by the system board and the tuner card that allows it to obtain a catv signal and the such.

The Bravia XBR lcd's had an issue with the internal power supply within the tv where a given set would power on but then it would turn itself off after a certain amount of time. That was the reason for sony to issue a software update for those tv's.

I apologize for the *** comment in my last post, I'm not here to make enemies but rather help people (unless I'm talking to stewart, jk). So, no worries, all is forgotten.

you know what?

In reply to: No worries...

we did have a sony bravia that would not turn off at night, we always had to unplug it at night, I know thats kind of different then what you said, but we did have this problem.

TV's are turning in computer hardware, if its not right when they put out the product, its ok we'll just update it later, Im starting to hate electronics.
