Question about Televison & Video
I think it goes without saying I wouldn't call the people who came the first time again!! Could you describe the problem a little better and in more detail. I've worked on tvs all my life and never heard of one going to white, at least not without retrace. Since the serviceman did not elaborate on what code 157 means I can only speculate that it is similar to the blinking lights on Sonys and others which help to localize the problem. Wouldn't you think the tech would have a remote if he new what he was doing? As far as the estimate of $700 I cannot believe anything in the tv would cost that much. I fix tvs everyday and we rarely exceed $200 per unit and that is going to customers home to repair it. You said your unit is a DLP. If the problem is as you have stated I would think that replacing the light engine would fix it and they are only about $350 and you could probably do it yourself. Give me the info I asked for and I'll see if I can help you fix your unit.

There are several things that could cause this, you could be having a voltage problem fluctuating, a bad signal board, doubler board, tube, or a fluid leak can all cause this problem. To be honest with you I am betting on a fluid leak, what this is, is there are three tubes in the set and the manufacture puts a liquid coolant in them to keep them from over heating, well on your model it is been known to spring a leak and drip coolant onto the circuit board, if this is the case the tv is done for, there is no repairing it because it will cost $700. if you have a bad signal board and it is repairable you could be looking at $500 range. Anything else on this tv normally runs $400-$600 to repair, I hope this answers your question, please let me know if there is anything further I can do for you.
Let me know, if needed further assistance.
Hope i helped you.
Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!
