My questions are: Is the problem fixable if I just move the speaker or does it require servicing. Who do you trust to fix this problem? Should I bother to call Sony about this? Is it worth fixing at this point after about 5 years of wear and tear on the TV? What should I expect to pay if I have to go the servicing route?
I love my Sony but don't want to throw money away if this problem is serious. Any suggestions/advice would be appreciated. I'm in Central NJ if that makes a difference
I've read many posts about the green globs or blobs on the 40XBR800s and my impression
is that there's no sure fire fix. Some have had great experiences with repair attempts while others have not. The magnet fix, for example, hasn't worked for everyone. Perhaps the training and/or skill of the particular technician is a factor.
I don't know what a repair might cost but definitely get an estimate in writting before you approve the work. Check on the going prices for a used model of your TV and keep that in mind before you spend too much on a repair. It may be that a repair would cost more than you could buy a perfectly functioning TV of the same model.
I ran into that when my KV-36XBR400 developed power up problems. The repair estimates were in the ballpark of $400 but I could find a perfectly functioning TV of the same model for $300 or less. (They are going for even less today.)
