So what is the downside of Sony TV Repair? Often Sony TV parts are more expensive than parts from other TV brands. The upside is normally in the quality of the picture, sound and software in a Sony TV. The other positive part is that their power supply boards are often repairable. Their power supplies are so well designed and built that when there is a problem, the problem will stay contained in one area. This means we can repair that original board without having to replace it. That translates to lower cost on repairs. Often the replacement parts we use end up being upgrades to the original. So you end up getting a better product than if you buy a new power supply board. The same applies to Sony inverter boards and LED driver boards.
That is why with SONY TV repair they are almost always worth repairing. And often they are cheaper and faster to repair when we can repair their Sony TV boards at the component level.
