Question about Sony KV-32V26 32" TV
My ~9 yr old Sony KV-32V26 suddenly will not turn on. It acts exactly as if unplugged (although it is plugged in to a verified working outlet). A buddy of mine who used to repair TVs told me to check the fuse on the power board which appeared to be intact. He took a look inside the cabinet and said it looks as if the power board may be bad. How can I go about troubleshooting/repairing the powerboard without getting the entire board replaced?
My experiance is to not put money into a TV that is over ten years
old. TVs stress out their electronic components worse than almost
any other electronic product. After 10 years, there are so many
parts that are ready to fail that your are probably wasting your money
trying to get any more life out of it.
Be careful on buying a new one though. Often times, they are much worse. Always Google the model number of the set you intend to buy and add the word 'repair' or 'complaint' to see if it is one of the many models that are customer service nightmares being produced by even the most reputable companies today.
But if you really want to repair it - partstore.com sells the whole main board for about $170
