I have a Sony KV21LS30 TV whish I bought last year. Over the last few months the silver coating has started to wear off the power button. This is very disapointing considering how little the set is used. I'm an idiot for not contacting Sony before the warranty expired, but anyway.... I've been in touch with Sony and due to the TV being just out of warranty they are prepared to see "what they can do to help" as a gesture of good will, but first they want an authorised service centre to do a written report. Everyone wants to charge me to do this (£38 + VAT) which could leave me out of pocket if Sony won't help. Besides this it's a lot of hassle taking the TV somewhere and this put the TV at yet more risk of damage when in the car. All I REALLY wanted was a new button. I am quite capable of changing this and am totally prepared to do this at my own risk (to both the TV and to myself). I'm sure Sony make millions of these things and they cost pence to make, but due to liability they can't just "pop one in the post" to me. Does anyone have any idea where I can buy one from? I've tried a couple of local service centres (to see if they will just obtain and sell me the part), but they are not interested in helping. Either because they want the job or through fears that I fry myself in the process! Why does something so simple become so difficult. It's just another example of the world going mad in my opinion. Does anyone have any idea, if so I'd be very grateful. Thanks, Rob.
