I work as a tech for a company that buys various brands of laptops, ruggedizes them, then resells them to a 3rd party. Anyway, on some units,during reassembly, the power LED doesn't work. Sometimes they get broken/damaged in the process, so we have replacement LEDs that are installed (with correct polarity). So I've had it replaced twice, in case the first LED was bad, but still no dice. I've done a pretty decent visual of the area, which is about all that i can do without schematics. Any ideas?

There are many companies providing various reseller accounts with different pricing. Like web hosting companies providing reseller services to its client so that they can launch their own hosting company without getting the Server which is way too costly for a startup business so in such cases reseller accounts works.
The fluorescent tubes behind the LCD panel are dying of old age. Eventually one will fail to start; when that happens, you will see light from either the top or bottom for a few seconds, then the inverter will shut down to protect itself. You can get replacement tubes from Moniserv's parts site for $9.99 each.
Replacing the tubes is a delicate job, especially soldering the wires on the ends. You can purchase new tubes with the wires already soldered on for an extra $12 each; this is the way to go if you are not skilled at soldering. If all goes well, I think you will be surprised at how much brighter your screen is.
The answer to replacing your battery depends on which battery do you want, where do you want to buy it, how fast do you need it, and how much you want to pay.
The quick answer is to buy a NEW exact model battery for your same model laptop off eBay, but I strongly recommend you need a new one with some type of warranty.
Most local laptop repair stations will not carry your specific model (it would have to be ordered) and it will likely be far more expensive because they have high operating costs, have to pay the full wholesale price , and have to provide the manuafcturer warranty.
The low price, speed in shipping directly to you, and potential increased battery life due to improved battery design point that the best deal may be on ebay, however I should note a concern about 3rd party batteries... Some OEM laptop manufacturers have had problems with OEM batteries overheating in laptops due to manufacturing defects as noted by recent recalls from HP, SONY, Dell, and IBM.
Use of 3rd party batteries (not OEM) may void the remaining warranty on your laptop since the battery could be purchased from a company not approved for the OEM laptop to sell their parts. I have never had this battery overheating problem, but youe should be aware of these concerns.

I would try a genuine sony replacement lamp. There are some reputable sellers on ebay selling them for a couple hundred dollars...Oh also, you say your TV is under warranty?
If it is under Sony's factory 1 year warranty, I would call them direct. If your on some sort of extended warranty plan, through a 3rd party company, tell them you want the genuine sony bulb. Put up a fight, and if that doesnt work, read the fine print for your 3rd party warranty. My extended 3rd party warranty states that if the TV fails 3 times during the extended warranty period, they will replace it with a new one as per their "Lemon" policy.
