Hi Im sorry to hear that.

This sounds to me like either the main board or the power supply.

Can you send me a video or even a screenshot of the picture flickering effect?

Thanks

How do I do that? I mean is there an email or something that I can send it to?
Expert:  Master Fix It replied 9 months ago.

Hi I know you can do that from this page, but I cant see it from here.

It would show up right in my dialog box.

I get a lot of them from customers and it will tell me what the problem is.

Thanks for your patience.

I do not wish to be charged more money. If you can not answer my qustion just refund my money and we can part ways. I am not satisfied with any of this. It said $28 IF I was satisfied with the answer which I have not received as of yet.

Hi I would like to help you but I need either the model # ***** a pic and some way you can describe the problem to me. I only answer the questions as truthful as I can I'm here to help no hinder.

But let me ask, was there any change int the flickering when you replaced the boards?

When you say power board, do you mean the power supply for the TV or the Ballast board?

Thanks
