Question about Sony KDS-60A2000 60" HDTV
I have a Sony KS-60A2000 that is about 2 years old that trys to turn on but then just clicks and the red indicator under power flashes 4 times. I bought a Sony becasue up until now I have never had a problem with thier products. I will think twice now the next time I buy a TV. I have this TV connected to all my gaming counsles, Xbox 360, PS3, WII and my stereo system. It sucks that only after two years I now have a problem. The tv is in a well ventelated area and is kept well.
Also I have tried the tips at the Sony Web site located at: http://www.kb.sony.com/selfservice/microsites/search.do?cmd=displayKC&docType=kc&externalId=C461251&sliceId=1&docTypeID=DT_KNOWLEDGEARTICLES_1_1&dialogID=50546290&stateId=1
and they do not work. Any adivce on how to best proceed would be greatly apprecieated. Thanks
You are another victim of a power supply failure with fair certainty and since these are mostly made by subcontractors, the quality is pretty miserable across the board.
Modern supplies are highly efficient but very picky about component quality and all of the mfrs. seem to cheat. The typical failure is not the kind that causes smoke but rather intermittant operation or simply a failure to start up.
I'm pasting my usual instructions below:
Unplug your set overnight to allow potentially hazardous voltages to discharge, remove the back panel of the set so you can see the guts.
Look for a smaller board with larger parts on it; some cylindrical (capacitors), others block-like and relatively large (chokes and transformers).
You should also see a relationship between the board and the incoming AC.
Check the board for a label or if not present, a stamped-on number.
Call the manufacturer's service center with your TV model number and the number found on that board and inquire about repair/replacement costs; if both are offered, they won't be that much different.
If you must buy a new board, don't dispose of the failed one as there are smaller companies that can repair it for less than the mfr. and then keep it as a spare as this problem will likely arise again.
