Hi one part of the screen is dark ,just like if a light bulb went out can it be repaired .please let me know. Thank you John
Electronics Technician: Neil, Engineer replied 8 years ago

This is usually not economically repairable I'm afraid... If you have a soldering iron you can try a repair yourself by checking the soldered connections to LCD panel, if you don't then all you can do is dismantle and check inside for any loose connection from the screen to the board.

 

If no luck then the cost of a new lcd is often close to the cost of a new unit...

I love this site! $9 instead of a repairman or new/used frig can't be beaten. This older woman will worry less now that she knows about this site. Bless you all.
