It's been a while since I started a post, anyway a week ago I decided to invest some money into repairing my old Sony KP51WS520 RPTV. It cost me $200.00 which was only10% of what I would have spent to replace the unit with the same picture quality. The power board went bad as the indicator light flashed 9 times without a click or the t.v. coming on. I shopped around and I tell you the only picture I was really impressed with came from the plasma t.v.s which really had pretty good blacks that make the colors pop. My Sony is doing that very same thing. I'm glad I spent the money to have it fixed, and I can deal with the occasional visitor asking me why do I still have that monster t.v. How many of you guys and gals did the same? Please humor me and let me know with your comments.
