After multiple service calls and hours on the phone with both the Geek Squad and Sony, our 55’ Sony TV with a JBL sound bar continues to have issues.
Problems with our Sony TV began in May 2020 after a Sony automatic update installed.
Since then, we have had multiple Geek Squad service and phone calls for these issues:
Rebooting constantly No input message appearing Sound bar and TV volume issues Turning itself off & on The Main Board has been replaced 3 times. The issues were resolved except for the TV sound issues and sound bar issues which have been ongoing since the first board was installed.
We were told by Sony and a 3rd party Geek Squad technician that the sound problems were normal. Other technicians told us it is not normal nor is it a sound bar issue.
The last Geek Squad technician (after replacing the main board himself twice) deemed it not reparable and escalated the issue. We were contacted and told it was a Sony Firmware issue that is not covered by the Geek Squad warranty. This is in conflict with the Geek Squad extended warranty “no lemon policy”.
I would not recommend purchasing a Geek Squad Extended Warranty or a Sony TV. The 5-year warranty failed us.
