Mine had the horizontal lines you are talking about. 1st check a test picture. Click on Menu, then Settings, then go to Product Support. From there click System Diagnosis and go to bottom and click on sample picture. If you see the same problem there, then you may want to research the possibility of installing a t-con board. You may want to try calling Sony 1st and have them walk you through the basic service repair items. I was very lucky and installed a new t-con board I purchased with all the other boards on Ebay. Good luck with solving your problem! Ron

It is the LCD Panel causing the problem. If the unit is out of warranty, it would be too costly to replace. If it is in warranty, you can call 1800-222-SONY and they could help you find a service to repair it.
I hope this helps,

On your television remote press the wide button, hopefully you have the television remote. You can press this wide button on the remote to select full and zoom, you should be able to find one of these options to fix the caption from being off the screen.

Problem sounds with t-con board that is part of lcd panel (screen).
Since its a week old so must be under warranty, ask Sony for warranty cover or get replacement from Store there it was purchased.

Symptoms shows it is T-Con board related problem and T-Con board replacement will solve it.

There are 2 type of T-Con boards utilized in KDL-52V4100 and both are available in Shop Jimmy. Click T-Con-1 and T-Con-2 to have image and price info.
Qualified tech will check what board is required in tv as per its serial number and lcd panel.
I do not think this problem is related with using tv as monitor.
Hope this info will help you.

'TV' is the input for bunny-ears, not for the side composite ports. Please turn on the Wii and try all the "External Input"s.

It's cheaper to buy a whole new TV. I recently acquired a similar TV with a broken screen thinkink I could get a screen cheaper than a whole new TV. I found out different. If you find a place to get a screen cheaper than a new TV I would like to know about it.

Most likely a capacitor going bad. If it gets louder after the TV had warmed up for a while, remove the back and blow all the dust off the circuit boards. While you're in there, look for a capacitor (google if you don't know what that is) right next to or touching another component, especially a resistor. Carefully bend it away a little to reduce heat transfer. If it's not a heat-related issue, it'd likely cost more than the TV is worth to have a repair shop fix it. Consider running the audio through a separate sound system. If it buzzes even with the TV volume turned all the way down, disconnect the internal speakers.

By your description it is hard to say. It could be the LCD Panel or a Main Board. Either one could cause the problem.
I recommend you to call Sony to see if they could get you in touch with a local Service Facility so they could better diagnose it. Sony may also be willing to help with repairs if the unit is out of warranty.
Their Phone # 1800-222-SONY.
I hope this helps,
