Sony KDF-E55A20 55 , Q board problem? A1110067A

One morning I turned on my TV and no picture; sound is fine. I bought a new lamp but that did not fix it. I paid a Sony repair man to come by and he says something like the "Q" board is bad. a new board is ~ $471.50 with a trade in. Does all this make sense? the TV is 20 months old and will cost me ~$800 to fix as he wants $300 to R&R the board? Can I R&R this myself?

I Don't know what a Q-Board is? There is a D Board. First off, is there a blinking light on the TV set?

In regards to my Sony KDF-E42A10 I heard a pop and the picture and sound went out. The green light just blinks and there is no picture or sound. What could be the problem?

I disagree with info given by expert.
Pop sound would be broken lamp in tv, take out lamp from tv and check it, replace it if found broken.
Usually lamp got broken at end of its working life span.

My Sony KDF-E60A20 will turnoff (Picture & Sound) for about 25 seconds and then turn back on again. This will go on for a while. It may run for a long time then goes through this cycle again

It is clear symptoms that tv needs new lamp as old lamp has reached at end of its life.
Lamp replacement procedure is easy and would be written in user manual, please buy Sony original lamp for good picture in tv.
Let me know if you have additional question.

Why does my sony vega keep turning it self off and back on again

Im guessing it is doiong this about every 30 seconds or so. Im also guessing that when the sound and picture go out, the green standby light flashes until the set comes back on. If this is the case, mine was doing the same thing. I did a bunch of research. I replaced the lamp and the tv is like new, no more problems. The lamp light on the front of the set does not come on because the lamp/bulb is noot burned out all the way. I bought my lamp from , the best price I found.
