This is for one of my clients TV. I'm not at his home right now.This is not what I do. I Install sound systems, Lighting control, security cameras, WAP's. I told My client I would see if I could get him an answer. Is it worth the time and money to fix this TV
Expert:  Jack replied 7 months ago.

O.k then glad you ask that question and my educated guess is that it has a defective t-con board that cost $50 if you buy it yourself but you still have an 8 years old 720p (not full hd) tv

Then the repair shop would be out of the question cost wise

That money would be better spent on a new tv if you ask me

Any questions on this ?

If you can`t find the rating system then you can do it verbally by saying something like I rate good or excellent service and that will do
