Hi , I`m Jack , I will be helping you today
Can you please send me a reply when you are ready to proceed ?
Note that I need time to type and research for parts and info if needed so don't be surprised if there are delays between replies

Do you get a brief flash of light on the screen when you first turn it on ?

Is the screen just blank with some background light or completely dark like when the tv is off ?
