Question about Sony KV-36FS16 36" TV
My Tv no longer displays any green color. My son had a bad habit of saturating the color (maxing it out) and now the T.V no longer shows any green color. The onscreen display prompts are now all black instead of the normal green. Can maxing color out in this fashion cause trouble (I assume yes, but don't really know for sure). On the front panel there is a Red light which constantly blinks which I assume to mean a fault of some kind has been detected. I like supporting local business and brought the set to a local mom and pop T.V. repair place to have them look it over ($100 diag fee).. Anyway i dropped the set off and the owner replied that it could be a simple problem with a circuit board or a more costly complete tube replacement. He indicated it was a top of the line T.V and they don't make a lot of repair parts for this set anymore, but he did happen to have several Tubes (in case one was needed) out back. Long store short he said the green gun doesn't fire and is not replaceable and I need a whole new tube. Does this sound right?...He was very eager to replace the whole tube for $800 (no warranty). But I hardly think this would be a wise move considering the same T.V. can be found on-line for under $1K new with a warranty. As it stands now I would bring the unit back home put it in the basement and leave it for the kids video games... Any help or guidance will be greatly appreciated... BTW I don't have the proper equipment or training to troubleshoot. I only have a digital volt meter and realize the capacitor inside can kill you months after the set has been unplugged..
