    Only cost £42. Guy said he had to resolder over 15 joints on various boards. Why do Sony Tv's suffer from this?

    mine had a simliar problem about 9 months ago, after it spent 6 months in storage.

    Also only cost me about £40 gbp to get fixed, the board that hosted the SCART sockets needed a solder bath.

    What did you get fixed? What model? where from? Was it the FQ75?

    No, it was a 7 year old KV29F1U. Been totally reliable up to now but just packed up all of a sudden. I gather the new TV's are not as reliable. I jokingly said I would take one of the newer widescreens he had in the shop but he said I was better off with mine as they are so much trouble. He was a Sony authorised repairer found in the Yellow Pages. Got my TV back now and after a week of a 14" portable I'm chuffed. Just wondering whether to put that £300 I had budgeted for a new set to an Xbox.
