Anthony, if you can provide the information about changing the main board, I'd appreciate it.
Thank you!
Expert:  Anthony_Infotech replied 1 year ago.

You need to get the back off the set, locate the main-board that's the board with all the AV connectors on,now take the board out by unplugging it and unscrewing it from the chassis,look on the board for the part number this will be on a sticky label or etched on the board then initially try, if they don't have it google the part-number only, fitting is the reverse of taking out plug and play.

Let me know if you need more info


PS please remember the rating, note question will remain open thanks
