Hi , I`m Jack
Perhaps I can help you with this problem but first a few questions , please send me a hello when you see this ?

Expert:  Jack replied 1 year ago.

Hi , this is a plasma tv

What is the tv doing now if anything ?
Is there a light or blinking light at the front , clicking sound from inside when you plug in the power cord or try to turn it on ?

Expert:  Jack replied 1 year ago.

O.k then in that case the very first suspect would be the power board.

Did you wish to look into this yourself or simply would like to have an idea of what is involved and the costs of repair ?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
no is there a reset could i put in the new power board or is there a reset anywhere there was no power outages or anything like that
Expert:  Jack replied 1 year ago.

Sorry but if the tv is completely dead then no reset button available on this .

This is a plasma tv and after you`ve installed a new power board you would need to adjust the VA and VS voltage s on it .

This is not plug & play , it will require trimming .

sorry if that is not an easy solution but I`m a tech. and give straight answers ,

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
is it worth and how much do you think it would cost to fix it
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
i was kinda of waiting to get one of those new tvs that are curved and filmed in the special new hd
Expert:  Jack replied 1 year ago.

The power board itself cost around $100 if you were to buy it yourself and then you could be looking at perhaps another $150 to have a tech replace it for you.

I`d say that if you had your eyes on that new model then this would be a better investment for that $250 + instead of fixing this one
