Hi the tv is a Tatung 42" model number P42BSMT ,3199 is my postcode, I purchased the tv with no sound and the picture was fuzzy and warped I turned the voltage screws on the boards and was able to get sound and good picture it still had only a few pink dots in the upper left hand corner and as I turned the screw labeled PFC the tv lost sound then picture and there was a popping noise which left me with nothing .I mesured the voltages (vcc, vset ect )on the power supply board model number LJ44-00068A and adjusted to suit the voltages on the board when I reconnected the board there was only one green led light on ,I replaced the 1m0880 power mosfet and one 5vdc relay along with a couple of capacitors that were getting suspect readings.After this I now get three green Led lights which means some power is working?,one goes off and then the red led light comes on and then another green led goes off you are left with one green led and one red led ,the on /off switch light on the front of tv is staying blue the remote control has no effect what so ever the tv does not switch on .hope this helps robert

I have opted out of this question since I have no information on this model in my database. By opting out this prompts other experts to reply if they have the answer for you. Hopefully another expert will respond soon.
