Question about Sony BRAVIA KDL-40S2010 40 in. LCD Television
I had the same problem yesterday and found a post from a former Sony technician that recommended removing the U24 chip from the main circuit board. I did so and now it works fine. The U24 chip is very small, has three pins (one on one side of the device, and two on the other) and is located near the very large CPU "Genesis" IC on the 'A' circuit board. It's sort of halfway between the Genesis chip and another chip marked as U5. You have to look at the board very closely to see it. It's very tiny and you could overlook it easily. It looks like a surface mount transistor and will have "U24" printed on the board next to it. It was a bit hard to find. I recommend laying the t.v. face down on a carpeted surface then remove the back panel and stand. There is a case over the circuit board (which is where all of the video and audio connections go to) that has to be removed as well. Look closely for small screws that go horizontally into the sides as well as they have to come off to remove the case as do the two posts next to the monitor connection. If you're not comfortable doing this then get someone to help but it took about 45 minutes and saved me the price of a new television.
