Thank you for the reply and that is the correct model.
This set is a DLP set, that is known for failures of the Light Engine, as well as the Ballast, and the lamp (which is a consumable component). In my opinion, given the history of this set and the fact that there was a class action lawsuit years back based on it's reliability (the suit has long since been closed so there is no recourse under it anymore unfortunately), I would put that same money into a new TV in a heartbeat in lieu of repairing this one.
The Sony, even once repaired still has a history of being prone to failures and it would likely cost you more money in the not too distant future.
Considering that you could purchase a 50" Toshiba or LG LCD
TV for about the same price as repairing this one, it makes sense to replace in lieu of repairing.
