Welcome to Just Answer,

 

My name is John,

 

The problem you are describing is caused typically by a failure of either the main board or a damaged power supply, I say damaged because unlike the main board it in many cases is repaired and not replaced.

 

First i want you to understand, this in many cases is a inexpensive repair under $100 at my shop if you have a damaged power supply. The main board is under $250 for repair by an authorized service center, so the set is very repairable and worth the money to have repaired, since this set sold for $1999 MSRP, and even to replace it today with a comparable set would be $900 + the DVR, so worth the investment.

 

If you do not know of a local service center that you trust it is always good to contact the manufacture and ask for an authorized service center in your area.

Hope this helps,

 

Thanks,


John
