YOU CAN REPLACE THE MAIN BOARD. IT WOULD BE COST EFFECTIVE TO REPLACE THE MAIN PCB, BUT THE PROBLEM IS FINDING THE CORRECT MAIN BOARD. YOU CAN TAKE THE BACK COVER OFF AND GET THE NUMBER OF THE MAIN BOARD DIRECTLY OFF THE BOARD OR YOU CAN GIVE ME THE TW NUMBER OFF THE REAR COVER AND I CAN TRY AND RESEARCH IT FOR YOU. HERE IS A LINK TO ONE MAIN BOARD I FOUND. YOU CAN SEE IF IT IS THE SAME AS YOURS.
