Re: Sony KP-53V85

My unit is 9 years old, almost 10 (in 2 months) and started the same a couple of months ago. The only way to fix it is to have them serviced by a tech and replace the projectors. Its just the age/use of the unit catching up with it.

Many resellers sold them with an offer to sell you an optional maintence service where they would fix/clean/replace the projectors for upto 5 years after purchase. I'm not sure if they even have the parts anymore since these tv's are no longer produced. After market repairs are likely to cost as much as or nearly as much as buying a new flat screen tv.

When the set turns off, does the red timer LED blink on the front of the set? If so, how many times does it blink? The number of blinks corresponds to the reason the set shut down.
