TV Technician: Jack, Technician replied 2 years ago

If you don`t have the model number i won`t be able to be specific like the part numbers and where to buy but i can still give you a pretty good idea of the problem and costs of repairs.

Just tell me this ;

How old is it approx. ?

What screen size and is it plasma or LCD

By the way , anything younger than 6 years will be lcd

I love this site! $9 instead of a repairman or new/used frig can't be beaten. This older woman will worry less now that she knows about this site. Bless you all.
