Question about Sony KDL-26U2000 26 in. LCD Television

1 Answer

KDL-26U2000 26 in. LCD Television No picture. This TV was purchased 3 months old from a chap on eBay and it worked fine for about 2 weeks, then sometimes it would turn on without the picture, just sound. If you kept tuning it on and off, the picture would come on, work fine for hours but then would fail to come back on after the TV had been turned off or onto standby. Sony just don't want to know as they state the TV is second hand and I do not have the warranty documents. Any ideas out there? Thank you.

It sounds like you might have a defective LCD panel. Your warranty for your TV is 18 months. Some of these models the warranty was mis-printed and said only 12 months.

My flat screen tv shuts off and standby led blinks 13 times.

Our $2700 less than 3 year old Sony LCD KDL-40XBR5 did the same thing 2 weeks ago. Sony was anything but helpful. They said to take it to a repair shop or we could send them $550 and they would replace it with a $800 set. Repairman says that it is a panel and the part has been discontinued by Sony. The 46" sets had the same problem and were recalled but not the 40" screen. We stopped on the way home and purchased a 40"

I have a sony Bravia KDL-52W3000 LCD tv. Approx.

I have the same tv with the same problem. My tv is about 3 1/2 years old. I took it to the shop yesterday and today they told me that I had a bad lcd panel and a bad FL1 circuit board. They also told me it was going to be $3800.00 dollars to fix. I am now on my way to buy another tv, needless to say it will not be a Sony. Sony knows about this problem and refuse to do anything about it. Good luck.

I don't have a listing for your model, but it is not unusual for the panel to cost more than a replacement set. As another example, the replacement tube (CRT) for a 27" Sony set can easily be $700. This was when these sets were being sold for $350!! Parts is where these companies rake in big profits. Don't blame the servicer for this one.

Sorry about the bad news.
