My Tv just shut off while I was watching it the other day. When I plug it in the TV has a little spark in the back (nothing big) and it clicks, stand by light will stay on, but no picture or power. Can anyone help or give me some idea of what I should be looking for? Maybe just what I could tell a TV repair guy to look for so I could save a little time and $$$ ?

Re: SONY BIG SCREEN KP 61V80 "just shut off"
You will need a new Power/scan board unless you have some real good troubleshooting Skills. This is the ITC222 chassis it is not very easily diagnosed without the proper diagnostic equipment, It is going into protective shutdown. Replacing the entire module is your best bet

2 things that will cause that vertical IC or Yoke! Listen to this one went on service call 2wks ago Customer had a 50 INCH1988 pioneer big screen replaced 3 capacitors resolder poor connections TV is now working like New ?
The power supply wnet out and yes it would be kinda expensive to fix but this depends on how you value your TV if you fix it it would last 9 more years if you buy a new one these days they last like 5 years before the give out as well. So you decide on what you like to do at this point. a new psu $200 bucks a new TV this size in to the thousands and it will be DLP and not LCD. If you found this information help ful can you rate it accordenly " we rely on ratings to keep us working" Thanks
Hi, 4 times flash of standby light shows that TV has problem in Vertical Deflection area and possible causes are IC1509(V out) is broken and / or Q1505(V Pulse Buffer) is broken. Please check / test above said IF you have experience of TV repair.
It can be just an adjustment of your screen control. There is a "sweet spot" on the control where it allows the picture to come through. This is a common problem with sets that are getting old. If there is a problem with the high voltage from the color tubes then it will shut down the video until the problem is gone and it is safe again to show the picture. This is known as going into a shutdown procedure to protect the set. A technician will be needed to fix your problem since it will require proper troubleshooting and knowledge of high voltage system and safety procedures.
This is a very easy fix actually all you need to do is replace that cap and the set should be fine, this is a very common problem on your model. If you look on the board and give me the location of the cap I will be happy to look up a part number for you.
The part is a horizontal output transistor 2SD2578. There are probably other parts shorted such as a flyback transformer and or power supply components. I would not try to fix this one if I were you. Sony TV`s rarely blow just one part. Usually you have a handful of bad parts. Sony`s can be difficult even for experienced technicians.
Dead set , more than likely the TECH that came out is correct.It is common for this unit. It seems though, that you questioning the repair cost. To me that repair cost is very, very, very good. Technician's are experience people in their field, like a DOCTOR, it is not the time but the schooling and experience that you are paying for.
