Question about Sony KDS-55A2000
My tv has a green blob in the picture. From everything I've looked up, I need to replace one of the optical blocks. I've tried to look up prices, but it seems to be pretty variable. One site says I could get the part for less than $300 while Sony's parts department said it'd cost me closer to $1300. From what I've been able to look up, I need part number A1203195A/B. I've checked partstore.com with no luck. Any chance the part's less expensive than either of those numbers?

You have what is referred to as the "Green Blob". Sony messed up bad with the Optical Light Engine. They didnt realize until months after releasing the model you and I have they had a huge problem. So they figured not all Engines were bad. So technically, they havent recalled. I went through several months of talking with Sony and my warranty. You will need to call a tech and have them check to make sure. My tech knew what it was by me telling him over the phone. Hes worked on a more than he cared to say. Sony will play games. They will want a considerable deposit put down before sending the new Engine. And if thats not the problem...they keep your money!!!AAAAHHHHH!!!!I feel for you. I pray you have better service than me. Its been a year since. so maybe they are better. God Bless!!

As part of Sony's commitment to quality, Sony is announcing that it is extending the limited warranty (parts and labor) for optical block replacements on the models listed above until June 30th, 2009, regardless of purchase date. Authorized servicers should follow the normal process for warranty claims for this issue. This extended warranty does NOT apply to replaceable projection lamps or other parts that may be used in the televisions. All other terms of the Sony limited warranty continue to apply.
