Facing TV Problems? Ask a TV Technician.
Hi , I`m Jack , I will be helping you today Please note that I have no control over the phone (or other) offers , they are sent by the website ,not by me and without my knowledgeBy the way , Pearl that greeted you is a computer so never mind the odd questions .Can you please send me a reply when ready ?
About that blink code , you are saying it blinks 3 times then once and starts again ?
Yes , can you see my question above ?
O.k so that would be a code 31 , give me a minute please
O.k then according to the manual this is a main CPU communication failure , in english it means the main board .
Give me a minute and i`ll have something for you to try
Unplug the power cord 30 secs then press and hold volume down and input at the same time directly on the tv while you plug in the power cord .
Tell me if the screen lights up with a letter K in the corner
No problem , take your time
O.k then i`m afraid this would mean a main board part #DKEYMG382FM01
If you are into this i will find it for you but first you would need to verify directly on that board that the sticker says G382FM01
There may be other versions although i cannot see others at this time .
If that is not your cup of tea so to speak then to have this repaired at home could cost you around $350 parts included and perhaps $50 less if you take it to the shop yourself .
If you need to find repair shops near you then look at the link below and enter your zip code ;www.tvrepairpros.comThis will give you a list of NESDA member repair shops in your area.This list may be limited though and you may find more the yellow pages or simply google "tv repairs" and the name of your town .You could give a call to different shops in your area to get an idea of their rates , it pays to shop around .
Much welcome and please do not forget to rate (and SUBMIT) so i can get compensated for my time helping you.
