You need to get the back off the set, locate the main-board thats the one with all the AV connectors on, unplug and unscrew the board from the chassis, remove the board ,carefully examine the board for its part number usually found on a sticky label on the board or etched on the board, (you may need to go through a few codes before you find the right number)when you get the part-number try www.shopjimmy.com first, if they dont have it google the part-number to locate a supplier, its the reverse to fit plug in and switch on TV (plug and play)

Let me know if you need more info

How much for the main board?
Expert:  Anthony_Infotech replied 1 year ago.

The board will cost around $100 you can get a rough figure by going to shopjimmy and inputting the model number a list will come up of the boards you will see the mainboards but do not order this way only order by partnumber as there are many variants that will not work
