Question about Sony KP-51HW40 51" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Blue Screen How do you fix a tuner on this tv? We called the nearest tv repairman and he said he doesn't travel this far but we could bring it in he would fix it. Since this is a 51 inch tv, it would be a pain to move. Especially if they are going to tell me it is going to cost $800 to fix. I may as well go out and buy a new one. Is this a costly fix?

The tuner is about 100.00 you have to unsolder the old one and solder the new one in in its place takes about an hour to do

    the tuner is what the cable screws onto..the tv repair shop can order the new tuner for you if you ask him to

  • Ronnie Houston Aug 30, 2008

    if you take it to a shop they are going to charge alot more to fix it the tuner itself isnt that expenxive and if you know how to solder you can install it yourself.all you have to to is unsolder the old tuner and solder in the new one takes about an hour

You have a defective T-CON board most likely, but that is just a guess without doing the required testing.

LG 55LM4600-UC LED TV I have was squirted with a squirt gun. Would replacing the t-con board fix this tv? Please read further details.


when water shorts out something it overloads a lot of other components so the best advice is to take it in for a proper diagnosis.
you just replace a board but another board is damaged it might just blow the board you replaced and that would prove nothing

Mine died after a brown out. It turned out to be the main board. They're pretty hard to find.

TV just flashes different colors


You have entered a diagnostic colour test. With the TV powered on, hold the 'Menu' & 'Enter' together, then press the power button. Problem resolved
