Hi, thank you for contacting JustAnswer.com. My name is***** will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.

From the sound of it, the situation may not be hopeless. Lights all coming On means something good: no short circuits, no burnouts, power supply still good - perhaps only a controller board needs replacing or the like simpler type of (not minimal, but simple) repair.

Whether that makes it worth repairing, really depends upon some factors:

- are you willing to try (and perhaps waste $) and repair it yourself?

- are there nearby repairers in your region that will take on this problem without charging almost as much as a new one would cost you?

- and, is it Old, or Used a lot, or is it Almost New? Almost New (e.g. light usage and less than 3 years old, or heavier usage and 1 to 2 years old, or very light usage and stored in good conditions when stored and up to five years old.... those are all better prospects for repairing.

If I can advise you further, let me know your local town/city and state, or zip code, and I will advise you further as needed.

- If this answers your question, please let me know - and a rating for my work would be appreciated.
