My brother bought a Sony KV-36 XBR 450 television a little over two years ago. Somehow, some moisture got into the set and fried one of the 2 major boards (A1299481A is the part number)in the TV. A local repairman sent the board to Sony, but they said it was unfixable and they no longer stock it. The repairman said he called all over and was unable to locate the board anywhere else so basically he is out of luck. They told him his only option was to claim it as a loss on his homeowner's insurance and buy a new TV. Can this really be true? A $2000+ TV that is only a little over 2 years old is unfixable? Any suggestions who be greatly appreciated! Sorry, just realized that this may be the wrong place to post htis question. If so please delete. Thanks.
