    Okay so my Sony kdl-52v5100 seems kaput... I was rearranging my room this weekend I had unplugged everything except the power to TV and had my ps3 plugged in and connected via hdmi...now I'm not sure how it happened but when I was back there fiddling with wires it seems the 3prong power plug from the ps3 was disconnected then reconnected quickly...there then was a surge that ran from the ps3 to the TV and fried the female hdmi socket on the bm3 mainboard... However after this happened there was no power or even standby lights to the television...my question is, could it not be powering on because the mainboard is fried at the hdmi port (blackened all the way up to the heatsink) or does it point to a power supply issue...the other two boards look perfect. I found a replacement board for 70 bucks on eBay...I would love if that was the answer..professional opinion? Thanks in advance, Nathan

    Hello there!

    How do you know it was a surge? How do you know there wasn't another issue that may be causing the problem?

    Unless your electrical system has a surge or if there may have been Electro Static Discharge, I would think a surge that would damage your equipment like that would be rare.
