Question about Sony STR-DE845 Receiver

Display is Blank

We where watching a movie last weekend and the display started to flicker and than went blank. The receiver works fine sound/power wise. Is it worth opening anything i can fix? I'm pretty good with a solder iron. How much would this cost for a new display!

Well since I just saw this note and it has been months since you made the posting it is probably irrelevant at this point. I had the same problem and it is easy to fix if you are handy with a soldering iron. Unplug and remove the front control panel from the unit. In the control panel are 3 circuit boards, 2 piggy backed on either end of the center/main pwb. You will have to remove knobs from the front to access but once you remove the boards you will see the way the 2 outside boards connect. They plug into the main board and if yours is the same as mine you will see that the plug connectors have become loose at the solder connections. I resoldered mine and all works fine. The connectors are small so be careful when soldering. The way these 3 boards connect is problematic in my mind and I can't imagine that all of them will not eventually have problems.

Sound but no vision, black screen

It's either the backlight lamp or backlight inverter is busted due to a power failure or fluctuation. Here's how to determine which is which:
  1. Grab a flashlight.
  2. Turn on the TV.
  3. Shine the flashlight onto the screen.
  4. If you cannot see any display even a faint one, the backlight inverter is dead, else the backlight lamps are busted.
  5. Replace which ever is the culprit.
