Some times the TV picture does not come up, sound is okay, but the picture flickers and come up in 15 to 30 minutes.

Hello WelcomeThanks for using JustAnswerIf you could just answer the below info requests please this will help me a lot thanks!If you use another input like a dvd does it also flicker on here too please?Is the flickering rather like a blinking effect ?Anthony
Haven't tried it with dvd. You might say it is blinking.
HiCould you please re-check the model number I will need the full number found on the back of the set please?Anthony
HiThe problem is either a bad invertor (this controls the backlight) ot poor grounding of the invertor or a bad backlight itself (not good news), the invertor would need to be replaced just to eliminate this as this is the most suspect If I am able to locate one do you think you can replace it yourself?or do you need a cost on repairs?Anthony
Not sure I could do it myself. What is an invertor, is it like a tube, or somekind of chip.
And what would be the cost of it (invertor) if I decide to take it on.
HiThe invertor controls the backlight its a board I would estimate the cost of the invertor to be around $100 from a board pulling site could be less (if I can find one)dont forget you could have a bad backlight in which case you may be able to send the board back but their will be a restocking charge ,if its the backlight then the set wont be worth repairing due to cost however the majority of the time it is the invertorAnthony
