Facing TV Problems? Ask a TV Technician.
Hello, My name is ***** ***** I'll be helping you with this.A few questions coming up and please note that there may be delays between replies if i have to gather various info ;Could you please give me the model number written on the tv`s back cover ?
Is the screen just blank with some background light or completely dark like when the tv is off ?If you`re not sure then darken the room and turn the tv off and on again while you observe the screen .
O.k and you do get a picture in there ?
So the screen is totally dark and to top it off there is nothing when you try the flashlight test , is that it ?
It is sometimes difficult to see the picture in the background if the screen is not lit
Very rare that you would have both the backlighting and t-con board fail at the same time
When you first turn it on ,do you get a brief flash of light on the screen ?
O.k then please give me a minute to type this down
By the look of it I`m afraid that what your tv has is another case of defective LED strips and this is very common with LED tv`s nowadaysThose LED`s are supposed to last a zillion hours but they do not , they are failing all over the place and not only in LG
If you had in mind to repair this yourself then i must say that this is not an easy job to do and you will have to be comfortable working with electronic circuits , here is a video that shows you how its done ; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YgaL6X6eSaU
If that is not your cup of tea so to speak then to have this repaired at home could cost you around $250 parts included and perhaps $50 less if you take it to the shop yourself .
