Question about Televison & Video
I would suggest taking a look at the power module if that can be replaced. The Fuse blowing may have only been the beginning of the problem. Any recent issues with under or over voltage in your home?

Sadly there isn't much the average user can do to fix this problem.
It's hardware related. You can try powering on the system with the hard drive removed, but it's VERY rare that will solve your problem.
Check out this guide here and this one here.
Those are DIY guides but if you're not up for the challenge I would highly recommend getting the machine fixed direct through Sony.
You can contact them @ 1-800-345-SONY.
They charge a flat 150 rate for all repairs.
Best of luck!

You have one of two things wrong. One the new power supply board may be bad, we have seen quite a few power supply boards purchased on Ebay that are just as bad as the ones people are trying to replace. They send them to us for repair along with the original board and both have bad capacitors installed. Many of these boards are coming in from PC recyclers that are just striping monitors for parts and not rebuilding the boards before the sell them. Check the tops of the capacitors for bulges if you find any them the board is bad.
If the board is in fact good then the cause is bad florescent back light bulbs in the display panel. When the fail they pull to much current trying to light up and this trips the over current circuit in the power supply board which shuts the power supply down to prevent damage and this turns off the display. The bulbs can be d but this will be a very involved project. You can do a Google search for instruction on this process but keep in mind this bulbs are very fragile and thin, easy to break.
I hope this helps. If you have any questions just reply to this answer.
