Question about Sony KP61XBR200 TV
There may bad news on the repair from for this particular TV. Having worked on several large screen projection TVs, the prognoses is bleak.
This particular model uses 3 high output picture tubes (R,G,B) and each are triggered (shine) from the exact same "fly-back transformer". All the older picture tube style TVs have used this device as the sole means of generating the actual light that projects to your eye. When it goes bad, the whole TV shuts down and refuses to operate Since the early 80's anyway).
Can you get another fly-back...? Maybe, but not without an astronomical price tag attached to it. That's not even including having it installed (this ****** just plain isn't plug and play).
Then once all that is done there is this wonderfully expensive process of re-alligning your picture. See, once the new transformer has been put in the guns (R,G,B) have been 'pulsed' into different projection points. So your tehnician gets to stand on his head and nudge-fudge and cuss the picture back to a presentable state.
If there is a huge sentimental attachment to the TV then it might warrant the expense, but if I read this model correctly, you'll have to have a digital converter box or cable to get the proper picture anyway. Sadly, it may be time to look into another veiwing investment.
Hope this helped...
