Hi fellow owners, I need your help:

I had a faulty optical block that I took out and got fixed and NOW, I'm trying to put it back together. However, when i took out the optical block, I forgot to document and take pictures of the entire process (yes, i know, i'm a freak'n idiot).

I actually went out and bought the service manual and between me (mechanical engineer) and my father (electrical engineer) we are pulling our hair out trying to put it back together with the service manual and the wiring schematic. (seriously, i feel like we are idiots). AND, unfortunately, there is no one in our area that will even service this TV (we live in rural florida).

IF there are any owners out there that have done this and have documented pictures and proces then please SEND them our way! OR if you would be so kind you can take pictures of the entire wiring of your unit that would be helpful also!

Please let me know if you can help, we would appreciate it and make it worth your while ($$$). Thanks for the help!

I downloaded a service manual from servicemanuals.net and it helped me quite a lot.At least for my TV (Sony KDSR70XBR2)it showed colored pictures in fairly good detail.It did not however show anything inside the optical block,which you had yours rebuilt anyway.
I had the posting "Sony KDSR70XBR2 optical block issue" just above your post. Hope this can help.

The installation of the LE in the chassis, and the connections to the rest of the chassis is covered in the SM moderately well. There are no two connectors that I can recall that can be mismated, because they have different numbers of pins, different designs or colors.

On some of the Sonys, the two tiny connectors at the end of the bundled tiny blue wires seem reversible, but one of them is marked with red electrical tape and plugs into the connector beside which is stamped an 'R', or something like that.

Some of the LE mounting screws may be buried deep inside the LE, and require a flashlight to find, and a very long Philips screwdriver to reach.

If what you need is documentation to show how to reassemble the guts of the light engine itself, that doesn't exist because Sony (and all the other manufacturers) didn't want service people taking it apart, and they didn't sell parts for the inside of the LE anyway. I can't tell you 'how to put it back together' but I can answer specific questions.

If you get stuck on a particular connector, what I have done a few times is follow the wire to the board it comes from, and record the connector number, for example J210. Then do an SM search of 'J210', and because the characters in the schematics are searchable, you can find every occurrence of J210 in the schematics, and eventually find where to plug it in.
