That is likely to be the panel arcing

TV Technician: Anthony_Infotech, Technician replied 2 years ago

The panel arcing will damage the power and other boards

the panen ,what panel
TV Technician: Anthony_Infotech, Technician replied 2 years ago

I do not think its a good option to continue with repairs on this set, the panel is not replaceable due to costs, the panel is the display screen

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
what panel are u talking about
TV Technician: Anthony_Infotech, Technician replied 2 years ago

There are high voltages on the panel and if it arcs or it may even have a crack it will damage scan and powerboard as a result of the arcing sorry for dismal news here

TV Technician: Anthony_Infotech, Technician replied 2 years ago

Fitting boards is not the answer it may even get the set back on again until the panel arcs again and damages the boards

TV Technician: Anthony_Infotech, Technician replied 2 years ago

And have been since its inception in 2005 so that is 10 years experience, I could tell you to swap power and scan boards but its not the underlying cause

Ask Your Own TV Question
TV Technician: Anthony_Infotech, Technician replied 2 years ago

The underlying cause is an intermittent arcing panel have a look around the sides to see if you can see any cracks

Ask Your Own TV Question
TV Technician: Anthony_Infotech, Technician replied 2 years ago

Not conclusive however
