No lights on
TV Technician: Anthony_Infotech, Technician replied 10 months ago

I cansay in every case were there is no power-light lit no sign of life from the set you are sure there is power reaching the set then ideally checks with a volt-ohm meter are needed just to establish that the power-board is bad, its looking like 95% certainty however that it is,this board will likely need to be replaced,is this something you think you can do yourself?I will provide all relevant info for that ,let me know
