My nice new 6 week old PRST1 died on me a few weeks ago over night, the screen went black. I returned the unit to where it was bought and they sent it on to Sony for inspection. The inspection has come back saying that there is liquid damage and my warrenty is invalid. I have just called Sony and they say the liquid has been in there for some time, so can't have occured while the unit was in the care of the retailer. Well I have never got the thing wet, it has only been outside twice when I have sat in the garden on a dry sunny day. I am at a loss what to do, what can cause liquid to get in to the unit? I am concerned by the fact the unit was only 6 weeks old when it died and they say the liquid has been in there some time, but of course they can't define how long "some time" is. At the moment I feel like I have been sold a faulty unit as I have done nothing to damage the unit.
Has anyone had anything similar happen?
