You can read thousands of similar complaints all across the internet from across the world how sony continues to produce defective lcs they have turned into a second rate company who sold thousands if not hundred of thousands of television sets knowingly with defecive parts primarily optical blocks. sony does not care if any shape or form about customer service but would rather as they have contiually made abudantly clear rather loose loyal customer who THOUGHT sony was top notch when it came to technology and customer service. As of right now, Sony has lost one class action law suit invloving a series of sets and has two more pending with a new and definitely largest class action law suit in the early stages of being filed. THE BEST ADVICE AS A ELECTRONIC EXTREMIST WHEN GOING TO PURCHASE A NEW TV WHETHER PLASMA OR LCD DO NOT WAIST YOUR MONEY BUYING SONY THEY ARE A SHELL OF WHAT THEY USED TO BE. AND THEIR SUPPOSED CUSTOMER RELATIONS IS A JOKE ONCE YOUR ONE YEAR WARRANTY IS UP THEY FORGET YOUR NAME. IF YOU DONT BELEIVE ME JUST DO A GOOGLE SEARCH UNDER SONY TVS AND OPTICAL BLOCKS PROBLEMS

Unfortunately, I have to agree. My KDFE42A10 is one on the latest class action suit in California. Sony is not standing up to the plate and doing the moral thing. They are not re-engineering the optical block and are not offering an equitable solution on a rebate. Simply repairing the optical block with a like one will not work. It will only last until the next projection bulb change or sooner. Prior to this I preferred Sony products, but can no longer feel like their products are first line.

Sony KDL46V3000 has a design flaw?
I believe there is a design flaw with this TV. The manual controls for the TV are located on the top center preventing proper heat ventilation for the LCD panel and tcon pcb curcuit board directly under it. This is the likely cause of a heat related LCD failure.

Thursday, July 22, 2010Sony LCD TVs are Samsung or Sharp LCDs
Did you folks know that Sony LCD TVs are actually made with either Sharp or Samsung LCD panels. I found this out when my Sony KDL46V3000 LCD TV panel failed at 18 months and out of warranty. I checked to see if just replacing the TCON pcb at about $49, would fix the single vertical red line problem in the middle of my display. I noted the part number for both the TCON pcb and the LCD panel was a Samsung part number. It turns out they must be replaced together, and the LCD panel costs more than the TV is worth.

I paid a premium for the Sony brand name believing it to be more durable than Samsung or Sharp. Therefore it would seem that the smarter purchase for this Joe consumer would have been to buy the Samsung or Sharp and use the Sony premium difference to pay for the extended warranty. It turns out there is a pretty high failure rate in LCD panels, and they are not repairable.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
