TV Repair Questions? Ask a TV Technician
Hello , my name is Jack Perhaps I can help you with this problem but first i would have a few questions;
Did your tv quit while you were watching it or just would not turn on today ?
When you say that there is no power on at all , do you mean that there is no standby light at the front or clicking sound when you plug in the power cord or try to turn the tv on ?
In other words , completely dead ?
O.k and any difficulty prior to this to turn the tv on ?Like it would take longer than usual or repeated attempts before it would turn on ?
You just answered my next question , which was ; how long since you bought this tv ?
At this point with no light or blinking light at the front that could give an error code then you are very most likely looking at a power board problem.
Not sure if you were to look into repairing this yourself but if you do then I will help you along although I will be limited by the fact that I cannot be there myself with tools and meters.
So , my next question would be ;
Do you wish to look into repairing this yourself or just have an idea of what is involved and the repair costs ?
O.k , I will give you the details and you can decide yourself .
If you are into repairing this yourself then you can get that power board part # XXXXX at the link below for $66 ;
Otherwise , to have a repair shop repair this at home , you may be looking at approx. $250 to $300 and perhaps $50 less if you take it to the shop yourself.
If you`d like to look into repairing this yourself ,I would help you along but a voltmeter may be necessary at some point.If you go for the repair shop option then click on the link below and enter your zip code ;www.tvrepairpros.com
This will give you a list of repair shops in your area.You could give a call to different shops in your area to get an idea of their rates , this is a bit like buying insurances , it pays to shop around.
