If you call Sony's customer care and create a case file/ticket number with them they are supposed to have a service provider look at your television at no cost to you. You have to specifically state there was a burning smell or an electrical burning smell. The evaluation from the service provider should be free. The repairs may not be free but you would not have to go through with them if they aren't free and if you don't feel that they are worth the cost. The company is supposed to offer to evaluate your television because by law if your television caught fire and there was personal or property damage you could sue them. They want to avoid this at all costs.

You have intermitant problems which may be caused by contact resistance or circuit overheating.After it cooled down the tv starts again. Leave TV on standby at all times.

Tv Smells bad


If it's a burning or hot smell, may be dust in the back. Simply vacuum the vents on the rear regularly.

Unfortunately in most cases the cost to repair the tv is not worth it. The replacement panel plus the labor in most cases cost's more than what the tv cost you to buy. You can call Sony if you are intrested in the cost of the panel. 1-800-222-7669

Good Luck

This may be an easy problem to fix. If you heard a pop sound, it's possibly a burnt cap on the powersupply. Check caps C521, C522, C517 or any burnt caps on the RA-3 chassis. Obviously be careful when checking.
