Hi ,my name Jack

I will try to assist you the best i can through this medium.

Not a fast typist (but a fully qualified tech. though) so please be patient with my response time or very possible typos

A question on this ;

Is that inverted V blinking ?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No, it stays on white, solid, while its on. It looks like when the backlight turns on momentarily, the bottom left corner (as you are looking at it) of the screen doesn't get lit up.

Ok then your TV has a power board problem , How do you want to proceed from here ?
Look into this yourself or the repair shop ?

Let me know and i will help you along if you wish to look into repairing this yourself ,otherwise i will give you the details and costs you could expect.

Hello again

Not sure what happened above but that reply was meant for someone else

Did you say "bad LED " ?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I no longer need your services, thank you. The edge-lit LED strip has a bad LED in it that is causing the TV to not turn on.Thank you.
