    [font=Arial, Helvetica]Hey,

    I have just purchased my brand new KDF-70XBR950. I forked over SEVERAL thousand dollars (more than 7) cash to buy this thing. I was under the impression that this was the best LCD TV that you could buy from sony..

    I have had it in my house for EXACTLY 3 days. It will not work. It wont come on. I press the power button, and after blinking green on and off, it will blink red 5 times in a row, a silence, and then 5 times in a row again.

    The TV has been working GREAT for the last 3 days, and now it does this? What the hell is the deal. It should not be having a single problem this early in the process. I cannot believe that this is happening to me. I have been saving for years for the ultimate television, and now I cant even get my grand turismo fix..

    Please help. I know I can call a tech to come and fix it for free, but then I have to wait. Having just paid $7000.00+ 3 days ago, should I be having to wait to watch my own damn television? What can I do?

    I have tried un plugging it for 30 seconds, one minute, 5 minutes, and 30 minutes. Nothing works. It does the same thing. It wont come on. No sound, no picture, no anything.

    Please help, anyone.

    Bakushan, have you contacted the dealer and/or Sony? The unit should have at least a 1 year warranty (hopefully longer)

    Yeah,

    I bought a 5 year extended warranty, and it comes with a 1 year sony warranty.

    I just wanted to know if this was a common problem, or what. I have already arrancged for them to replace the unit this afternoon. They should be here in a few hours. Still, im irritated that this happenend so soon after the purchase.

    Welcome to Sony products. :mamoru: They're getting to be as unreliable as Samsung's DLP's were a couple years ago.

    Not sure what it is you're expecting (and I honestly never understood threads like this) you paid for a warranty and on top of that an extended warranty, now use it and get your equipment fixed.

    You could have got that for ~$6k from Great Indoors at Alpha and the Tollroad.

    I went with the Mitsu Diamon 62825 instead of that TV.
