Have TV Questions? Ask a TV Technician
Hi , I`m Jack Perhaps I can help you with this problem but first could you please send me a reply when you see this ?
Hi Wally , few questions first .
What is the tv doing now if anything ?Is there a light or blinking light at the front , clicking sound from inside when you plug in the power cord or try to turn it on ?Did it quit while watching it or simply would not come on today ?Any electrical storm or power blackout in your area prior to this ?
o.k and is the light blinking at the front now or its dead ?
If you pull out the power cord for a minute and plug it back , does it do the same thing ?
Here is something for you to try ;Unplug the TV's power cord and hold the power button directly on the tv ,keep holding it for 20 secs or so then let the tv sit unplugged for a couple of minutes before you try it again.
O.k but now , does it still blink or stops completely after the initial blinking ?
Reason for asking is that those TV's have a built-in error code system that will be given in blinks , for example 6 blinks/pause/6 blinks and so on but its continuous , it doesn`t stop
So now , is the light still blinking or it stopped ??
O.k then I`m afraid that this is a serious problem that points to your SC,SD and SU boards , those are the y-sustain board and its buffer boards .
You are looking at around $200 and sorry to say but not the easiest work to do if you are planning on working this yourself
Here is you blink code chart , click the link below;
By the way , if that link opens a login window popup then just close it with the upper corner X or the "no thanks . continue to view"The picture is behind that .
If you wish to look into this yourself let me know and we`ll look for those boards .
If that is not your cup of tea so to speak then to have this repaired at home could cost you around $350 parts included and perhaps $50 less if you take it to the shop yourself .
If you need to find repair shops near you then look at the links below and enter your zip code ;www.tvrepairpros.comOr this one;http://www.tvrepairman.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 , it pays to shop around.
