Question about Projection Televisions

1 Answer

I have an old but big (50" i think) SONY TV which was working fine until the day when i heard a little spark coming from the back and the screen went blank! the TV was still on but the screen was blank! and then a minute later the power light started blinking! i turned it off and tried to turn it on several times but it wouldnt work. a week later i got an electrician to look at it and he said the transformers gone and may cost £150-£200 to replace it! does the transformer really cost that much?? can i buy a second hand transformer from anywhere? is it worth changing it when i can add couple of hundred pounds more and get a new LCD TV? your advice/assistance will be much appreciated! thanks

Good Day, cjm364;
It sounds like the TV's panel has failed. A 2 year old TV should not fail in this manner. Call the manufacture and express your concerns to them very strongly and 90% of the time they will give a concession.
Good Luck, Big Irish, Let me know.

Good Day, boattech1;
To my understanding the Model 53UDX10B is a rear projection, that uses no fans. I think maybe your LAMP may be getting weak.
Good Luck, big IRISH.

Authorized sony repair center told me the problem was the Q Box. Ever heard of this? Part runs about 300 bucks. TV is out of warrenty as it is 2 years old. Do you think it is worth it to fight sony and get them to replace the part or just fix the TV?

Part Number is A1167541A, service rep called it a Q Box in the diag, however the web says its the b block assmy.
