How old is this set please?

Expert:  Anthony_Infotech replied 7 months ago.

The thing is this is a very serious issue likely to be the panel itself (in most cases) the panel can go short circuit and this is the error code you get , unfortunately its not an option to replace the panel due to costs and the sets age

I am sorry for dismal news here, if its any comfort the set is at the end of its expectedlife anyhow

If you need more help let meknow

I am sorry I do not have better news however if I am to receive credit from the site I do need you to rate the answer positively with the rating bar of stars at the top of the page thank you, ***** ***** know if you need more help

The panel by the way is the screen

Thank you so much
Expert:  Anthony_Infotech replied 7 months ago.

I hate having to pass on news like this but its ust the way it is with modern stuff, always make sure you get a long warranty built into the deal when you replace the set, I have seen these models fail during warranty the same way

Please remember though to rate me thank you, ***** ***** is top of the page thanks again
