Hello, The film negative look usually points to a failure of the T-con board in the TV. Is the same effect there regardless of source (cable/SAT box, DVD, etc.)?

Expert:  Aric replied 4 months ago.

Huh? You said it has a negative picture, so what has a negative picture on the set?

Hi , i`m Jack ,different tech here

Can you please be specific about this negative picture and when it happens ?

Expert:  Jack replied 4 months ago.

Perhaps but it looks like you received an automated phone offer from the website and in this case it would do nothing for me the repairman .

I will opt out as well , i don`t have any tangible info to go on here , just stand by and i`m sure someone will be back to you
