Question about Sony BRAVIA KDL-40S2000 40 in. LCD HDTV

2 Answers

TV Problems! Hello, I have a Sony BRAVIA KDL 40S2000 40in LCD TV. The other night it just blacked out in the middle of watching a movie. The standby light started blinking with an orange light. I heard a smokey type of fizz and then it went off. I immediately unplugged it. I tried this morning and it did the same thing. Will you be able to diagnose my problem? Thanks!

This is usually the high voltage on the inverter, balancer or backlight arcing to the chassis or at the connections. One quick fix was to look for a burn spot under the inverter(s). If that's the case, insulate the chassis at the point of the spot with a few layers of electrical tape 600v dialectric strength or better and carefully clip the leads just above the solder joint on the inverter board to widen the arc gap. If the white pink wire connectors arc too long they will charr requiring replacement. Cost varies depending on the problem.
