TV repair needed.

Recommended Posts

Hi Good folk of Sheffield.

 

My TV (Sony KDL-40Z4500) has bust. It no longer powers on. Thinking it was a fuse, i changed this. Still doesn't work. I tried an alternative power chord, still doesn't work.

 

Anyone on here who is an engineer and or knows where to take it would be appreciated.

 

 

*EDIT: I can see other topics similar, however didnt want to piggy back on their threads.

 

Many thanks in advance.

Hewitts ceased trading about 2 or 3 months ago, the shop is now an empty unit.

Thanks for the heads up. They do have a site still in operation. (I have sent a request in)

 

Any other ideas anyone?

Darn it! What a pity – I always found their service to be excellent.

 

Sorry that my info was a bit out of date, fordstar.

take back off and check the fuse on power board.

 

Fuses rarely blow for no reason. So even if it IS a fuse then something more than likely needs fixing.

 

Temporarily getting it to power up again could make the eventual repair even more expensive or impractical if it causes further damage.

Yeah, you can often replace the fuse, the odd capacitor and maybe a resistor or two, but you don't know what other components have been weakened or will soon blow as a result..

 

I'll happily take a look, and happily attempt repair, but I can not ever guarantee that I will get it working, or that it will remain working for long after... (they usually last a good 6 months or so at minimum however)
