Model: HD ready lcd Flat Pixel hd
turning off at the socket and back on again, this worked to begin with, but doesn't anymore.
Hi and welcome to justanswer.I`m going to help you with your tv but first i will have a few questions;
Can you see the tv`s menu correctly or is it also in stripes ?
Could you please lookup your tv`s model number located on the back cover ?
I will wait for a while(standby) to see if you become available for chat, just send me a reply ,and i will be notified and be with you ASAP.
menu also in stripes
model number is XXXXXXXXXX
Hello , thanks for the model number.
Do you wish to look into this yourself of just would like to have a idea of the cost of repair in a shop ?
both, depending on how complex
o.k then, could you give me a few minutes ?
O.k i found a supplier that will ship in the UK but none directly in the uk
supplier for what?
Sorry i`m having a little problem with the chat mode,i`m going to log out and right back in
Here is an address where you can see your part ,price and also can order it from there;http://www.shopjimmy.com/lg-philips-6871l-1098c-t-con-board.htm
As you can see this is about 6 or 7 pounds
easy to fit?
If you decide to look into this yourself then i will need you to give me the number in the white square stamped on the board
how much would this cost in a shop then?
In the uk i am less familliar with the repair cost so i could give you the average price here in canada or the us ?
This is a supplier in the uk but it seem to be out of stock at this time ;http://flattvparts.co.uk/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=1857
It is also called the LVDS board in the UK
i'm thinking of getting it done by a pro
If you want to take a look yourself then after removing the back cover,it will be sitting in the upper center at the back of the lcd panel and there will be a metal shield covering it.
In any case i gave you an idea of the cost of that part (second address) in the uk ,so you can tell the repair shop what you know
This could save you some money on the parts mark up prices.
Also, you will receive an email after this chat is closed and there will be a link to get back to me anytime if you have any questions.
you can close this chat from your end with the accept button if you are satisfied with my answer and have no other questions at this time.Thanks again.
