If this is a monthly subscription please cancel immediately. I am not interested. So far Just answer seems like a bait and switch. I am willing to pay for what was advertised: expert advise on what board to buy so that I can fix my TV. If you cannot provide that please cancel.
TV Technician: Anthony_Infotech, Technician replied 3 years ago
I am the technician I don't have anything to do with billing all as I can do for you is send admin what you have just said when we are through with this question.
If you want to contact admin yourself you just email***@******.***
Let me know what I asked above please so we can move on with this thank you

I already stated the problem specifically and what I had done when I filled out the initial form Do I need to do it all again?
TV Technician: Anthony_Infotech, Technician replied 3 years ago
That's all I needed to know if you read the question it states that
"if you have not done anything other than already stated please let me know thank you."
The reason is most people do not indicate everything they have done so much time is wasted going over ground THEY have already covered so thanks for the reply
Is the power-light lit or blinking on the front of the set please?
Anthony

Customer reply replied 3 years ago
Power light is lit.
Customer reply replied 3 years ago
My understanding (guess) is that power to the TV but no picture or sound = most likely a bad main board.
audio but no illumination = LED driver problem
TV Technician: Anthony_Infotech, Technician replied 3 years ago
OK if the power-light is lit it can only be in two modes ON or OFF mode which is it please ?(assuming its not blinking)if your not sure what color is it please
Anthony

Customer reply replied 3 years ago
It is lit (back-lit white) and not blinking.
TV Technician: Anthony_Infotech, Technician replied 3 years ago
If you press the menu button of the sets own remote control does the menu come up please?
Anthony
