Hello , my name is***** can help you with this problem but first i would have a few questions ; What is the tv doing now if anything ?Is there a light or blinking light at the front , clicking sound from inside when you plug in the power cord or try to turn it on ?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

No light at the front, no clicking sound, just black screen.

O.k then in that case I would take it that you mean a completely dead set ?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

yes seems so

Expert:  Jack replied 2 years ago.
Here is something for you to try ;Unplug the TV's power cord and hold the power button directly on the tv ,keep holding it for 20 secs or so then let the tv sit unplugged for a couple of minutes before you try it again.Although i do not expect much out of this procedure , it has to be done to confirm that this problem can be cleared or not with a reset.If that does not do it then we are definitely looking at internal problems with the tv.let me know how that goes.

Tried that procedure to no avail, still completely dead.

O.k then it would appear that you have a failed power/led driver board and this board for the equivalent USA model ( Un60F8000 instead of UA60F8000) is around $85Here is an example at the link below but note that your board may be slightly different and thast would have to be verified with the internal part number ;

Normally a repair shop would cost you around $300 to $350 to do this at home
