Welcome! I am an experienced electronics field technician and your satisfaction is my top priority. We are now connected together on this convenient website which saves you time and money vs much higher repair shop diagnostic fees.

To get started, I need to know you are able to reply to me here.

1. How long have you had the Tv?

2. Has the tv ever been serviced? or parts replaced?

Unfortunately there is not going to be any easy reset/fix. The Tv has an internal failure and the back panel needs to come off, checks need to be performed, then parts ordered and installed. That requires using a meter and performing complex tests on live voltages. In your case a repair shop should be consulted.

As an example of how much it will cost- Our shop charges $125 on site diagnostic fee just to hand you an estimate. Parts and labor on top of that are usually another $200-$250. This gives you an idea of whether you want to have the tv repaired or put all the money you saved into a new tv that will come with a fresh warranty, more features, better picture quality, etc.

Remember that I am here to help you. Please reply back if you need clarification on any of the above.

Regardless of what you decide to do next, please be sure to click the 5 STARS rating at the top of the page. Keep in mind that I have donated my invaluable time and expertise helping you rather than other paying customers.

Rating now does NOT close the question or prevent us from continuing our conversation here. My livelihood truly does depend on your positive rating.

Clicking the "bad/poor" rating does NOT do anything to fix your issue, nor does it issue you a refund.

Thank you,
