Thanks for the question. My name is XXXXX XXXXX X'm sorry to hear about your TV.I'd really like to see a picture of this. Please upload one to www.imgur.com and give me the link to it. Alternatively, you can email a photo XXXXX@XXXXXX.XXX but I often don't get those emails until the next day. Thank you!Best,Dan
would you like a picture of the screen or the back of the tv?
Both would be great. Thank you.Dan T.41097.6380912384
now all it is doing is black screen and the power light flashes three times and pauses then repeats the flashing sequence
Ah ha. Excellent.I've worked with your TV a number of times on this exact issue, and this is caused by the Y-main aka Y-sustain board.With this chassis, though, you should replace the upper and lower buffers, as well. If you don't replace all 3, you're throwing your money away.I've outlined the boards you need to replace:Your TV used a couple different versions of these boards, so be sure to get the part number from the boards themselves before you look for replacements. That way, you can be sure you're ordering the right ones. I've listed some suppliers, below.New partsencompassparts.comsearspartsdirect.compartstore.compacparts.comRefurbished partsmoduslinkptstvboards.comtristatemodule.comUsed partsshopjimmy.comeBay.comThis could get expensive, but look up the parts and decide for yourself if it's too expensive.If you'd like clarification or have more questions for me, click "Reply to expert."
