Hello, Welcome to Justanswer.
My name is XXXXX XXXXX I will be glad to help you.
Can you tell me how old the TV is?
my tv is about 3 years old so out of garantee
That is what I wanted to know as it seems to be a panel problem.
It is a dark shadow which covers images or do you get only color distortions?
Does it happen on other sources too, like a DVD player?
It covers images but at the moment i do not know if it happens when we play a dvd
Ok, this sounds like a backlight problem. There are two possibilities.
One could be a fault in the inverter board. This is the board that is responsible to supply power to the backlight
It has many tiny components on it like capacitors and resistors whose values will have to be checked so as to confirm the cause of problem.
The only other possibility is the panel itself.
In that case the repair would be very costly, infact more than the cost of the TV itself.
So, what I would recommend is, get a service technician to examine the inverter board. It most likely seems to be a problem in this case. You can get it fixed or replace the baord if that is the case.
If you have any other queries then I would be glad to assist you further.RegardsPlease click the green ACCEPT button ONLY if you are SATISFIED with my help. Please DO NOT ACCEPT IF you wish to leave a NEGATIVE FEEDBACK.Positive Feedback and Bonuses are always appreciated
nevertheless, it is worthwhile to let it examine by a technician?
Of course it is. It seems to be an inverter board issue. If that is the case then your repair should be done within $150-$180. You can continue using the TV then. But in case the panel is bad then it is wiser to go buy a new TV.
What you can do maybe, if take it to a local service center and ask for only a diagnosis especially of the inverter board. If that is fine then it is the panel. This way you will end up paying only the diagnosis costs which is less than $50 at a local store.
thank you for your information
