Hello, my name is*****'ll be happy to assist you. I need additional info about TV to troubleshoot the problem.

- Can you please get me the model number written on back of TV?

- What video devices/ sources (such as cable box DVD player etc) are connected to TV and does the problem occur on all video input sources?


Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Cable is only connection. Problem occurs on all channels.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Sony Bravia LCD model KDL 40V4100

Thanks for the info, does picture correct itself after some time or stays washed out?

Stays washed out.
Expert:  Shahid replied 1 year ago.

ah OK, unfortunately it is LCD panel internal failure and entire screen will need to be replaced which wouldn't be economical or feasible due to high cost of replacement screen if it is still available with Sony Parts, in other words you would be better off with a new TV instead of spending time and money on this old TV.

I wish I had better news about this TV, I trust my input will help you out. Please feel free to respond if you have any additional questions.
