Default Re: Sony XBR-65X900H vertical lines

I did watch the video, mine is an H series though and appears different. My TV only has a white and red light that I have seen. I used a 2gb drive and the white light pulsed for a few minutes then the light turned off. I presume it took the update because there was audio again but no picture after the pulsing stopped. I tried renaming the files to force another update but no luck. The firmware for this version comes in a ZIP not a PKG but I tried it anyways.

I did run across a technical bulletin for t-con and/or main board replacement procedure. It requires a WB/MURA/CUC data transfer between the t-con and main but this requires the screen to at least turn on so the service menu can be used.

As a last ditch I did order another t-con and new lvds cable to rule them out.

Not sure where to go from here.

Zip files are not suitable for tv updates, them must be uncompressed in the usb key root

According to Sony's support page for this model it looks like it call for using the zip

Download the Updater:
Before you install the update, you'll need to download the update files from the Internet and save them to a USB flash drive.

Click the Download button at the top of this page, then read and accept the terms and conditions.
Once you have accepted the terms and conditions, click the Download button at the bottom of the page to download the update files to your computer.
Verify the downloaded file names and size (see the File Info section).
Extract the downloaded files to a location on your computer you can easily find.
Make sure that a sony_tvotafull_202x_zzzzzzzzzz_yyy_auth folder is created and that it contains the following files:
sony_dtvxxxxxxxxxxxx_xxxxxxxx_zzzzzzzzzzzzzz.zip
sony_dtvxxxxxxxxxxxx_xxxxxxxx_zzzzzzzzzzzzzz_xxxx. dep
Connect the USB flash drive to your computer.
Go to the location where the extracted files are saved and copy (or drag and drop) the two files from the sony_tvotafull_202x_zzzzzzzzzz_yyy_auth folder into the root directory of the USB flash drive.
Note: The root directory is the first or top-most directory of the device, which contains all the other folders.
Remove the USB flash drive from your computer and continue to the next section

Tested a second t-con and a new set of lvds cables, still can't get an image. Probably going to call this a one a loss.

power the tv with the tcon disconnected

should give the error with the green/ amber light

then you will have to update/ pair it

then add usb with update file and see what happens

worth a shot
