Question about Sony KV-20S20 20" TV
TV is 12 years old. Just developed horizontal white bands with black diagonal strips across the screen. The bands do not fill the entire screen – probably 40%. This problem appears after a couple of minutes or can be intermittant or just turn to snow. Also, loud static noise. Can this be easily fixed or is it shot?
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.
Another option is to wholesale replace the main board by sending it to Module Exchange at 972-298-1212, or PTS Electronics 800-844-7871 ptscorp.com.
Be careful on buying a new one though. Often times, these new technology ones 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.
Hope ya fix it!
