Did you get the part number off of label pasted on main board?

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
Expert:  Shahid replied 2 months ago.

Different version of main board could be cause of trouble, however, what is the serial number of your TV?

Also, is there any change in TV symptoms with new main board?

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
Someone ripped the tag off of TV so I can't see the first few letters or numbers of serial number with new board there is no beeping noise
Expert:  Shahid replied 2 months ago.

This is not good news, do you see any small sticker on side panel of TV for model and serial number?

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
