had a power surge I believe (storms) - no power to the TV now

Hello , my name is Jack
Perhaps I can help you with this problem but first i would have a few questions

 

When you pull out the power cord and back in, can you hear a clicking sound inside ?
Any problems with the tv prior to this ?

Customer: replied 3 years ago.


no clickingsound when plugging in . no problems prior to this

O.k then this could be as simple as a blown fuse although your model has an 8 amps ceramic fuse and when they blow, it usually indicates a more serious problem.

Only way to find out at this time would be to test that fuse and the associated components in the power supply circuit.
You could always try to replace it and if it blows again then you would know for sure.

Did you wish to take a look into this yourself or just have an idea of the repair costs and what may be involved ?

I bought it at Walmart in Norwich , NY . There is an S & S appliance store in Norwich. Possibly take it to them telling them about the 8 amp ceramic fuse ?

Yes they would be able to test it for and as I said find out at the same time if only the fuse is gone .
I can tell you that this board costs around $80 to buy if it has to be replaced instead of repaired.
So you could expect a repair of approx. $160 to $200 if it has to be replaced.

satisfie - thanks. Unfortunate, but it sounds like I will have a good repair bill.

Might not be all that bad , I gave you the worst case scenario , you might just get away with a $125 repair (or less).

Thanks again and please take the time to use the rating system that you can see if you are satisfied.
