SONY 70 TV
Model: KDL70R557A
Serial: 6000819
Board: 0160 AC1F0103

A few days ago we have a big thunderstorm and the HDMI ports fried. I found the solution was to change the main board. This TV model is for export. I live in Colombia and it was impossible to find the specific board.

I found looking in internet data from the USA version.

Model: KDL70R550A
Board: 0160 AC1B0101

Comparing both boards the only difference I found is the USA one don't have the cable traditional connection which I don't care because all my connections are HDMI.

Can I replace the damaged board with the USA version?, and if yes what software version I have to use.

Thanks

See if your R557A Main board has a similar number as for the R550A Main board: 1-895-402-31 (1P-012CJ00-4010)

Both boards have the same number (1P-012CJ00-4010).

It might. If ALL board connectors are the same?

Menus would likely be a little different. Antenna jack seems to be the most obvious difference and you say you don't use that anyway.

You should be able to obtain latest firmware online from Sony.
