    Are those really $1200 like the repair man told me last time or was he just talking big ?

  • Jedi Bassist Apr 26, 2008

Sounds like lamp and driver need to be replaced again... Lamp is Sony p/n# A-1052-675-B and the driver p/n# 1-468-798-14

    The lamp can be purchased several places on-line for about 130-180 dollars but that usually doesn't include the lamp housing. At that priced you need to remove the housing and install the new lamp into the housing before installing it into the unit...

    The driver is another story - it's the lamp power supply and they cost about $90.00 dollars plus shipping... Try Vance Baldwin

    As for the labor it all depends on where, when and how it's done... It's going to be the least expensive if you take the unit into the shop. House-calls for a tech can be a real nightmare and something as simple as installing a lamp can turn into hours worth of work, especially if the tech comes ill prepared...

    The bright side to all this is that neither part is too difficult for you to do yourself.

    Good Luck!

    No idea... I don't know that anyone besides Fixya even offers some kind of self-help repair for things like this... Sorry!

For Sony Model KF-60WE610, KF-50WE610, and KF-42WE610, the Diagnostic Code of power light indicator flashing 6 times green, then flashing 6 times red (6 red etc), means you need to replace part number A-1302-272A G1 BOARD, COMPLETE. See Sony Service Manual, 4. Chasis-1 at part Ref no. 103. The Power Board sits vertically in two slots on the left side of the electronics board. 4 wire connectors to remove when replacing.

Dead sony

The $1200 was for the lcd engine not the lamp. You should change the lamp. The buzz is the power supply trying to light the lamp.
