Re: Repairing Sony LCD tv
Try getting the TV menu on the screen. If you can't, it's probably the LCD panel or backlighting issues. If you look very closely sometimes you can see a dark image if it's backlighting issues.
If you can bring up the menu, but all inputs are black, then the problem is more towards the electronics. Usually computer VGA and HDMI inputs bypass a lot of electronics and may point you to a video switching issue in the TV. If this is all Greek, consider a trained service company. Choose a platinum servicer since they are Sony trained, certified and held to much higher standards than other authorized servicers. Sony expects them to make first attempt fix within 5 days of contacting Sony. Usually the right part is sent to the tech prior to them setting the repair appointment. Compare that with the others and you will see a clear difference.

I would Google the model number carefully for "problems" "no sound" and usually this set will display some kind of error code===it may even have a hard reset to try===service manuals are available on the net/web to allow you to see how the sound circuit is set up etc.
Junk,not worth repairing,only good for electronics parts.Tv companies the only place can buy LCD Screen.The have limitted LCD in stock in production,don't sell them out cheap.
LCD screen replacement is the same as a new tv.Even exeed after part and labors.
hi, if your screen is cracked you will need a replacement screen this type of repair that if you call a service center they wont do becuase basically the screen is the most expensive part it may be more than the cost of the tv when new, theres only one way to do this and not spend a fortune and thats by buying a used tv same model that is not working or for repair, of course it needs to have a good screen, where at auction sites and surplus sites. you can replace the screen if you buy a used non functional at auction and exchange it or repair the other tv with your parts either that or get a new set, it is expensive to fix any other way. hope this helps, happy holidays.
You may have a case of a bad signal board. The clue was that your power button on the tv and remote are the only ones functioning. If the tv is still under warraty, call the service number to get help!
There are plenty of companies that sell the LCD panel but it is going to be very expensive. You can get them directly from Sony, Encompass parts is also very good, you could also try Herman's Electronics.
The part number is 1-802-183-11 but it has been discontinued.
The improved replacement part number is 180218312. Sony List Price: $1,279.99 Sony Core Charge: $3,850.00 (currently in stock through Sony)
Costs about $100 to ship

These tv's receive digital on the atsc 8vsb. Do you know what there broadcasting in New Zealand ? It could be that a Sony tech there can fix your problem. The TV can be set-up for a different digital broadcast and Sony is all over the world even in New Zealand .
There is some confusion on the model (KDL-40W500 vs. KDL-40V2500), so I will direct this toward the 40V2500.
On the KDL-40V2500, an 8X blink means the scan processer has gone bad, and the BU board needs to be replaced. If the problem is intermittent, the the AU board might be the problem, but if it all the time, bank on the BU.
A competent repair shop should be able to help you, or you can try calling Sony directly for assitance.
If the broadcast is in 4:3 (square) then either you can have the black bars on the side, or the TV can stretch the image to fill the screen.
Nothing wrong with your set. The broadcast must be in 16:9 to fil the screen.
