I have a panasonic 42" flat screen tv, that was given to me…

Customer Question
I have a panasonic...

I have a panasonic 42" flat screen tv, that was given to me by a friend. it's probably about 10 yrs. old. The screen started flickering about 8 months ago and now 1/2 the screen remains blacked out. Is it worth fixing or is there an adjustment I need to do ?

Technician's Assistant: Are there any HDMI cables or A/V jacks (red, yellow, and white cables) plugged into your 42?

No

Technician's Assistant: Was there a power outage recently?

I have power surges all the time
