Sorry. Didn't see your response till Monday and have been very busy. Is the repair easy or will it require a technician.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
How much $$ is the repair kit
Expert:  Anthony_Infotech replied 1 year ago.

Its only easy if you can use a soldering iron reasonably well and are very very careful making a mistake will mean starting again with another kit, if you click the link above and go down the page you will see the kit is $69.95, there is a tutorial with the kit and all the relevant parts.

A tech would charge $300 for this if you need a tech www.tvrepairpros.com will locate a tech in your area.
