Have TV Questions? Ask a TV Technician
Hi , I`m Jack an independent TV/AUDIO repairman with 40 years experience. Perhaps i can help you with this , please let me know when you see this.
Also ,Can you please give me the tv`s model number written on the back cover ?
O.k then this is a plasma tv
If you look at that blinking , can you observe short pauses , like 10 blinks /pause/10 blinks and so on ?
sorry but i cant take that call just now and this offer was sent by the website , not me
o.k then thats not an error code , it should be less than 14 blinks between pauses but in any case those vertical lines are a good enough clue to give you an answer
Give me a minute to compose my answer please
Thanks for waiting
This tv uses the main board part # ***** which has the built-in logic board that causes those vertical colored bars
This board cost some $120 to buy and if you are into that I can find it for you .
If that is not your cup of tea so to speak then to have this repaired at home could cost you around $250 to $300 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 link below and enter your zip code ;www.tvrepairpros.comThis will give you a list of NESDA member repair shops in your area.This list may be limited though and you may find more by simply using the yellow pages or simply google "tv repairs" and the name of your town .You could give a call to different shops in your area to get an idea of their rates , it pays to shop around but if i may be frank , considering the age of the tv at 7 years old and the fact that you can get a new 42" tv (like this one) with all the bells and whistles for around or less than $300 ,I would think twice before investing that kind of money into this one.
I think your money would be better invested in a new tv .
