Could be a blown capcitor as well but if the fuse is blown and you replace it and it blows again you gto capcitors and resisters haing issues as well. the back cover has snaps where your talking about and should pop off with a little play.

Good luck on your tv repair!

How to connect antenna to klv 40u100m

Correct. You have to connect the antenna to another box and then take the output of that box to the TV. An old VCR is ideal as this box.

I need the screws that attach a Sony Bravia klv-40u100m to the table top stand. Size so I can find them or where I can order.

They should be listed in you owners manual, but are most likely metric M4 x 8 mm. They are available in any home improvement store.

Sony KLV-40U100M Screen replacement

If this were just about any other brand, you'd likely be able to find another brand of TV with the same size screen and swap the inverter boards and the LVDS board. The problem with Sony is that the company uses internal designations. If you have homeowner's or renter's insurance, it might cover some of the cost. Otherwise, put the damaged set on eBay (you'll get a couple hundred dollars plus shipping) and go buy a new set. Likely, any larger set for sale with a good screen is going to go for more on eBay and finding one is rare.

That means hardware failure. It's the same indicator used on almost all sony products.

Tv don't turn on at all!

The U series has two boards and it could be either the system/video board or the power supply board. It will take a tech to tell you which is bad

Sony KLV 40U100M turns itself on and off at random irregular intervals

Had the same problem with my KLV-40U100M turning off and then on and it finally died. The repair shop stated the "A Board" needed to be replaced. So far it's still working. The repair cost $440.00, hope this helps.............

Tv won't turn on

KLV-32/40U100M (Dead, no lights), Solution, either replace or remove U24 uP reset chip on top of board, by (SW-1) silkscreen, I suspect, this is the common failure with dead units. Recommend
replacing U24, but should work fine without it. Why pay more!
