My SONY Bravia KDL46W3000 46" TV - paid too much at $2500 - is worthless after three years use. One or more of the fluorescent bulbs on the left side of the panel are not coming on to full brightness, thus leaving the left side of the picture very dark. These bulbs are considered part of the LCD panel assembly and not individually replaceable. The entire panel must be replaced. For the model of this set's serial # range, the original panel is no longer available and must be substituted with another part. This different panel also requires replacement of the "BU" pcb. This makes the repair estimate outrageous. The estimate breakdown is as follows:

LCD panel --------------- $1800.00
BU pcb ------------------- $ 380.00
Shipping ----------------- $ 125.00
Tax ------------------------ $ 130.00
Labor --------------------- $ 174.00
Total repair ------------- $2609.00

I am reconsidering my 40 year love affair with SONY TV's.

Extremely upset SONY customer.
