Well then that must mean for any "collectors" (now or the future) they must find the relevant parts and perform repairs themselves or find someone like CCS to do the repairs. (Sony still seems to allow a flat rate repair for $84 if it meets some basic requirements. The one I'm curious about is...


"Units older than seven (7) years from last market date." which may mean you'll spend a bit more money... (My last UTV was bought around March 2003 by summer 2003 I was told from local Radio Shacks that there stock had been "destroyed". So maybe 2011 then if they go by market "year"?)

Hey all, what the h3ll?!?!?!? I was going through the garage the other day, and saw a few UTVs in boxes! Hell, got a couple older Dtv HD units (3-bird variety) & some DTivos (SD). So, anybody interested in these? I think I've got remotes, maybe a keyboard or two. And I got a stack of these old cards with footballs on em.


So wow...peeps still posting, and still using these. These were the shiznit, no doubt. Too bad MS didn't take these to HD...the OS was hands-down the best.


Hey, what the hell happened to that NLogN trouble-maker? Didn't he have some cage-match with some dude on here? Klassic owes me a beer, and I heard kazak hit the lottery again...

I know my supply of fully functional UTVs are a bit low. Wouldn't mind some additional info.


RCA/Sony 40GB or more, tuner status, History, etc. etc.


I recently found my remaining Pre-UTV standard receivers (Sony A55 and B55) on the shelf downstairs (Had sold my trusty B2 shortly after getting my UTVs)... I've been debating how best to find them a home since besides myself it seems DTV doesn't want them (or any other non-Rid receiver) seeing the light of day again.


Anyone need some "regular" Sony receivers and maybe some "parts and/or single tuner" UTVs?


With Repair options for UTV getting thin... having a few spare parts around is useful.

CCS no longer repairs DVRs. Does anyone know of another service that will repair a Sony SAT-W60 (replace tuners)?

See also my reply under your seperate topic. There was another service named Johns DVR Repair that I contacted a few years back. My email discussion with him established costs as follows:
I do not stock drives. First I make sure I can repair the tuner (almost always), then I upgrade the drive. Repair $50 plus parts (less then $5 per tuner) and shipping both ways (you pay for all shipping). Drives are $125 for a 80G (aprox. 70 hours) or $150 for a 160G (aprox. 110 hours). Turn around time is aprox. 2 weeks.
He did this in his spare time back in 2009. You might see if he'd be willing to look at it. His email was john at johnsdvdrrepair dot com. I sent him a contact email as well.

Not sure johnsdvdrrepair is valid... As I recall besides his e-mail he had a simple Webpage setup... I didn't find the site after doing some searches here and Google.


Not certain if Sony will offer to repair it under it's flat rate repair cost (Now $93.00) for fixing the Sony UTV.


Look further back on this thread for my comment on 8-29-10 for details.


When I put in an inquiry for a SATW60 (no purchase date) today I got this:


The cost to repair this unit under our Flat Rate Program is $93.00, (plus any applicable taxes). Return shipping is included in this price.


Based upon the information you have entered, your unit appears to qualify for the Flat Rate pricing quoted above. Not covered under our Flat Rate pricing is the following:


Units requiring replacement of display devices*

Internal corrosion or moisture damage

Cosmetic parts **

Physical abuse.

Misuse or excessive wear. ***

Units older than seven (7) years from last market date.

Damage resulting from prior service.


If upon examination, it is determined that your unit does not qualify for Flat Rate pricing, then a parts and/or labor repair quote will be given to you. If you approve your estimate, payment must be made in order to proceed with repair. If you refuse your estimate, you can elect to have your unit disposed at our facility or your unit can be returned to you for a nominal fee. All repaired units will be returned to you with a 90 day part and labor warranty covering the entire unit.


During the course of the repair of your unit, it is possible that data, software or other materials stored or preserved on your unit will be lost or reformatted. It is your responsibility to backup any data, software or any other material. If you are not comfortable with performing this backup process, we suggest that you contact a service professional. Sony does not perform this type of service and will not be responsible for any damage or loss of material.


* Projection and TV picture tubes, optical blocks, Plasma panels and LCD panels


** Cosmetic parts (such as: cabinets)


*** Product used commercially or used in a manner other than intended or designed.


The parts used in your repair may be new or reconditioned. Reconditioned parts meet the same factory specifications for new parts and are their functional equivalent.

John's DVD Repair is either out of business or has changed his web conncetions. I tried him in 2009 and got no response to multiple e-mails.

As noted in the conditions you posted, Sony will not repair items that are more than 7 years beyond manufacture date under the flat rate program. I sent one of my units back to them in 2009 for a non-flat-rate repair estimate, and they returned it to me unrepaired, saying no parts (tuners) were available for these units anymore. Any other ideas?

Going to try to run this down a little further since CCS has ceased repairs. Looks like Maxim uses the MAX2120 as the replacement to the 2104 chip.
