Question about Sony KDS-R50XBR1 50" HDTV

1 Answer

Q Box problem

This products picture totally failed 2 years and 2 months into its life in a protected, climate controlled safe enviroment. After paying for a Sony service call which determined the issue to be the Q Box failure, Sony's responce was... " it is out of warranty". "Write our appeal committee", good bye. I paid $3,500 for a TV with a high quality rating that needs a $1,150.71 repair in a very short life cycle. It appears Sony has ceased making quality products and supporting their Brand.

    Currently have no picture. Flashin green light, then goes to red. Purchased Dec. 06. Had optical block replaced 15 mos. ago. Sent info from Sony that warranty had been extended due to this problem. After chating to Sony, no resolution for my current problem. Tried all trouble-shooting prior to talking.

The company states they will repalce it but not with this same tv becaise they no longer have it. Yeah I guess so, it's a total piece of ****. The company states they will send a different one and it will probably be better than the one before. ********!! Call them and get an RMA # so you can pay the shipping and get another tv that will work a few months more until the warranty lapses and you;re stuck with it.

Black out?!?!?

I finally got information from the repair shop. Apparently it is the upper and lower panel drive. The parts are supposedly not more than a couple hundred dollars, though I'll let you know when I get the bill. I do want to say that Hitachi was great when I called them. Even though my plasma is out of warranty by a few months, they agreed to pay for parts if I pay for labor. That just might keep me buying Hitachi products despite the issues I've had with my 2 plasmas.

White pictures, low battery life, few pictures

I glued a small peice of plastic under the flash and above the camera lens to shade it from the flash when it goes off. I then only had 2 pictures out of 40 that showed a white picture. The plastic peice only sticks out about 1 inch and didn't affect the flash on the subject. I also drilled holes in the bottom and hooked up a 6 volt tractor battery to it this gave me over 1 month of battery life with another identical camera

No receiver power

Yes definitely a problem not having it in a climate controlled facility! I don't thik a fuse is the problem. There could be water damage... i.e. fried circuits, so much could happen in that enviroment. You may be SOL :(
