Hello WelcomeThanks for using JustAnswerIf you could just answer the below info requests please this will help me a lot thanks!I will need the model number please found on the back of the set?Does the sound stay on?Anthony
model numbervf550m,sound will not stay on
HiBasically whats happening is the set is reaching switch on and start up but because theirs an issue with the backlight going off the set "trips" and shuts down, now i'm afraid theirs no magical fix here the reason has to be established why the backlight is going out it could be 1 Poor grounding of the invertors (the invertors control the backlight)2 The invertors itself3 The backlight itself4 The supply to the invertorsSo I dont have a quick fix if your/someone you know is practical then some checks can be made using a meter ?Otherwise www.tvrepairpros.com will locate a tech near youLet me know if you need more infoAnthony
where and what is the invertor?
HiThats a good questionYes they are located usually down the left and right hand side of the chassis (rear of the set removed)they are arranged in a master/slave arrangement (usually)and directly control the backlight, they are onlong in appearanceIf you have any difficulties spotting then send me a photo using the paperclip above your text window Let me know please which way you want to go with this ., sorry its nothing easierAnthony
