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 .
Also ,If you seem to lose me during the chat then refresh your browser (F5 key) and /or scroll down to the last written line at the bottom , that window seem to get stuck at times .
Please send me a hello so i know you can see my reply ?

Note that myself I do not send those $26 phone offers that you will receive , they are automated by the website and I`m not available for it at this time but another expert might be if you`d rather do this on the phone .
Otherwise you can just ignore them if you don`t want it , i have no control over those.

Hello
Phone call session started

I`m ready to accept your phone request but first i want to make sure you understand that this cost an extra $26
Do you still want that call or do you wish to continue in chat mode ?
That offer was sent automated by the website by the way , NOT ME

Also ,Could you please give me the model number written on the tv`s back cover ?

I will need that

Ask Your Own TV Question

Thats correct

If we can fix the tv, it's worth it. If I'm going to need a new tv, not worth it.
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
My phone is(###) ###-#### not 48...

Lets start at the beginning then , like the model number and i can tell you that although you will know what is happening , i can`t promise a fix if your tv needs parts !!

Is it just the screen that shuts off or the tv actually powers down as if you had pressed the power button

Tv shuts off
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
I can still get cable...I don't know if that means just screen or whole tv is off

How do you mean you can still get cable ??

Anything on the screen , any sound etc, or the tv shuts down ?

Ask Your Own TV Question
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
Actually shuts off as if...
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
A couple of times the cable menu would show, but if I pressed tv, it would be blank.

I`m just waiting for the final reply , so far it went from shut down , dead and losing signal

Let me know which one

Ask Your Own TV Question
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
No, the whole thing just shuts down

O.k then you got a power supply circuit problem , this is not just some reset or wiring , there is a hardware problem

Give me a minute on this

Ask Your Own TV Question
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
Ok. Sounds serious...

It is if you`re not going to work on it yourself , otherwise you can get a repair kit that includes all the boards in the tv for $60

Ask Your Own TV Question
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
I don't think I'll be working on it myself...

In that case for a 40" tv i would not recommend a repair shop that would cost 150 to $175 while you can buy a new 40" for around $200

Ask Your Own TV Question

I will close that phone request as we won`t be using it , you may see a charge for it but it will be credited when i send it in as incomplete /canceled
Note that you may not see the credit right away

Customer reply replied 8 months ago
