Question about Sony KP-46WT510 46" Rear Projection HDTV

1 Answer

Sony rear projection tv

I have a sony KP46WT510 46" rear projection tv.  We were watching a video when  it suddenly went black.  Tried turning it back on but all that happens is the power light blinks and there is a clicking sound. I was told by Best Buy that it would cost a minimum of $500.00 to fix.  They said the power supply is bad and that they would need to replace it first and go from there.  obviously I can't spend $500 on a fix that might not even be all the problem.  It is around 5 yrs old so it isn't worth that much.  But was wondering if anyone has had the problem or another suggestion.  I found a post on the internet that suggested it was a thermal fuse about the size of a dime under the fan housing.  What do you think.

Best to first if you have not done so---UNPLUG the set for several minutes and plug back to power to see if that fixes it (it does a lot of the time especially if you had a power outage).
