Electronics Technician: Mike G., Technician replied 8 months ago

Do you have tv/electronics repair experience? Because I'm very sorry to say, this is going to be an internal failure that requires complex diagnosis and parts inside the tv be replaced. It's impossible to guess which part is defective, but if you think you want to DIY, let me know and I may be able to help you with that here (it all depends on your level of electronics experience). Otherwise you will need to use local repair shop. In home repairs will be around $350 on this model so it is worth having the tv looked at.

I know this is bad news and very upsetting but please understand I am here to provide an honest answer. I hope you will submit a 5 star rating at the top of this page and not base the rating on the fact that your tv needs parts or services outside of our control. If for some reason you don't feel I should get 5 stars, please do not rate and just let me know and I will follow up with you here.
