    Hi All,

    I have a Sony PFM42B1E, which has stopped working. According to Sony as this is a 'Professional' unit it must be repaired by sony at a minimum cost of £700 and with a lead time of 4 weeks.

    Is there anyone in the London Area willing to have a go at repairing this unit? Or can point me to a possible repair?

    Fault:
    Standby works as expected, when switched on fans start as normal but no screen, I can hear a a faint ticking noise (about every 2 secs) which sounds a like a relay or power supply. The Power light flashes in time to this. I tried taking the back off and sticking a meter on to one of the power supplys marked 150V. This is powering up for a fraction of a second in time with each tick.

    Thanks for taking the time to read this post
