Hi , I`m Jack and I will be helping you todayPlease note that I am an independent tech. that depends on your positive rating to get paid by this website and I have no control over the phone (or other) offers , they are sent by the website ,not by me but let me know if you`d rather do this on the phone.That being said ;
Are we talking about vertical colored stripes on the screen ?
Do they show over everything including the tv`s own menu ?
Also ,Could you please give me the tv`s model number written on the back cover ?This is not a valid model number
Sorry but was out for dinner by the time you replied
Can you tell me about those questions ;
Hello , was out by the time you replied last night .
You mean that you cant even see the TV's own menu ?
Sorry but difficult to work with 6 days intervals.
What you seem to have is a either a logic board problem or it buffers .
This would have to be verified inside the tv and usually replacement parts have to be tried.
This would call for a repair shop , nothing easy about those plasma ans you would be looking at up to $300 in repair to have this done at home.
If you need to find repair shops near you then look at the link below and enter your zip code ;www.tvrepairpros.comThis will give you a list of NESDA member repair shops in your area.This list may be limited though and you may find more the yellow pages or simply google "tv repairs" and the name of your town .You could give a call to different shops in your area to get an idea of their rates , it pays to shop around but if i may be frank , considering the age of the tv and the fact that you can get a new 50" tv with all the bells and whistles for around or less than $450 ,I would think twice before investing that kind of money into this one.
I think your money would be better invested in a new tv .
