Re: problem with wacthind dvd in full screen and black...
Not sure I understand the half of the tv and half of the dvd player. Are you saying about mid way of your set is cut off and like the bottom half you have a picture and the top no picture? I can explain the dot, first you can open back of set and maybe take off hole back bezel. Get where you can put your head down in front of C R T's (tubes) and look down in them and see if you see the same thing in one or all three of the tubes. If so this explain the dot. The half problem sounds like vertical is missing. Not sure yet! Need feed back

U had this tv for 15 years but u watches or used the tv less than 8 hours everydays?Yes,than this tv set have alot of life left in it like another 5-7 years more.Yes,if the repair cost is around $500 or less.Because u will not get that kind of screen "61 size for $500 dollars.
I dont know of a good way to tell people bad news. The problem with the blue dots is expensive. A part called the optical block is failing. In general, the optical block takes the red green and blue pictures from the little lcd screens and puts everything togther perfectly. This requires several mirrors, filters, lcds, and parts that I dont even know the names of.
Buying a brand new optical block is a 1000 to 3000 dollar thing. To have the block rebuilt is about 350 dollars.
Sony has been trying to make the customers who purchased these tv's happy by providing extended warrentys, or giving them a special deal on a similar sized new LCD tv.
I would try to complain to sony and see what you can get accomplished. If you do opt to repair the optical block the odds are that it will happen again in a few years. Ebay and the chicago craigs list are where I have seen the guys who are capable of rebuilding those blocks.
LOOK THIS GUY UP ON EBAY STORES HE JUST FIXED MINE , FOR THE HOLE SCREEN HAD LITTLE WHITE DOTS , EVERYONE I ASK ABOUT THE POBLEM TOLD ME IT WOULD COST ABOUT 750-1000 DOLLARS THIS GUY NEW WHAT WAS WRONG RIGHT AWAY AND ONLY CHARGED ME 150.00 BUCKS , AND NOW MY TV LOOKS BETTER THAN IT DID WHEN IT WAS NEW, HERS HIS INFO, HONG BUI TVBSERVICE HOUSTON TX 713-401-7701
As the black and white pic got a snall cross dot patten all over it. If this so the input on your tv that connects to the dvd player as been set to s-video you can change this with remote on tv . regards windyhouse
Hi, I have a Sansui Model San1880, after I have manually program the TV channels, I don't get no sound at all only on the TV channels its got good pictures but no sound, would you please tell me what to do.
No but I'm having same problem and the dealer sugested just buying a new dvd player cause cost of repair or replacement is unbelivably high,approx 500 canadian for new dvd sleeve, the guy tells me they don't fix them they just put a whole new dvd player in from hthe manufacturer. Pretty disapointing considering how nice it is to have it built in.
