    I have never gotten much use from this Sony f340. So in excellent
    condition. The fault that has developed, I guess, maybe from not using it
    enough. Here is a tv screen picture of the fault, (heavy smearing to the
    right) which also makes the on screen display jump around.
    Is this likely to be a dried up capacitor, as it seems the picture slightly
    improves with time?
    I am used to older tv servicing, so would like to have a bash at this
    problem before throwing it out.
    Thanks a bunch.

  2. Sorry to inform you it's probably not worth the effort.
    There are likely to be dozens of bad surface-mount capacitors.
    Some may have even leaked corrosive material onto the circuit board,
    eating the copper traces.

    Thanks guys, it's a shame, should have used it more and got my monies worth
    out of it. I paid 100 gbp not long before to have another common fault
    fixed :-(
