Paragraph 2 of the attachment appears to say the main board is the cause of this.                    Bruce

Hi 'Cat'

Think I mentioned the old chap wrote to 'Sky' who magically reinstated his code. Bit odd as chap couldn't have altered its code as not on line.

Guess Magic or maybe eeprom corruption - Old chap happy as can view stuff I'm too old to find interesting - Chris

Thanks Zom,

Good thought, will check.

Tried with a firm recommended by Sony for service spares, but seems they only do RCU and mains leads, and they're ridiculously expensive. Sony do however mention 3 accredited service agents in the Norwich area, but suspect if it isn't under guarantee 200+ would be reasonable for a SSB replacement. Thanks again - Chris.

PS - Its a thought that if its edge-lit there won't be so many screen smashes, as takes a good sized brick, where back-lit need just a touch from a two year old in a paddy.

Hi folks,

Got one in where the slide switch seems to be a common issue. First one had a broken knob which I sorted no problem with wire and engineuity. Thought had the issue sussed, but the next one came in with a broken switch lever.

Sony don't do spares, as at 70.00 its a throw away device. Had a look about and seems its rather like the slide switch on the Nintendo DS Lite NDSL (Whatever that is)

Thought order a few as cheap and has a return spring like the original and much the same size. Replacing could be awkward as its surface mounted and sandwiched between two boards - Hey Ho - Its Crimble - Chris.

Thanks Bruce,

Duff MBs (SSBs) have become quite an issue with Sony sets in the last few years, and of course no useful panels on Ebay, ever.

Getting to be the same with Panasonic too. At least with an LG you can try cook 'em. Getting to be a Samsung fan as its nice to

be able to fix something at times. Favourite is any set using LG screen Leds - Chris.

Hi Dave,

See if this helps. Can't give the author any acknowledgment as I can't recall where I got it from.      Bruce
