Customer Question
When I turn on...

When I turn on the TV I just get for a second a light over the screen and disaapears fast, this will repeat itself. Is my TV gone or can it be fixed?

Technician's Assistant: Sometimes things that you think will be really complicated end up being easy to fix. The TV Technician I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts. Tell me a bit more about what's going on so he can help you best.

I don't get a real picture and no sound.

Technician's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the TV Technician should know?

Not that I can think of, Have not used the TV that much.

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.
