Set never goes off. After I unplug-plug back in keeps on working. Only when I turn it off overnight--

Basically your having to completely reboot the set to make it work, that is a bad mainboard, the board will need to be replaced do you think you can do that yourself?do you want to do that considering the issue is just an awkward\inconvenient one?

Let me know plese I will provide all the support you need to do this cost of board around $100

One thing I forgot to mention is you could try a full reset to factory default in the settings menu if that does not work then the mainboard will need replacing

Please remember the rating positive please so I get paid by the site thank you
