By the way
If you received a $26 phone offer or any offers they are automated by the website ,NOT BY ME , I`m an independent tech. and have no control over those, they are optional and you can just ignore them if you don`t want it , or use it if you`d rather do it on the phone .

Does the screen light up at all ?

Ask Your Own TV Question
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
NO
TV Technician: Jack, Technician replied 6 months ago

OK but you said that it cycles on/off ?

Ask Your Own TV Question
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
YOU SEE THE LIGHT AND THEN FIGHT BACK OFF, IF I DO NOT TURN IT OFF IT WLL KEEP CLICKING ON AND OFF
TV Technician: Jack, Technician replied 6 months ago

OK then right now i can tell you that unless you were to look into this yourself then i would recommend going shopping

A in home repair could cost you some $300 and you can get a new 50" with all the bells and whistles for around or less than $400 now

If you want to look into this yourself then once you have the back cover remove i will have you try a few troubleshooting procedures , let me know

TV Technician: Jack, Technician replied 6 months ago

Sorry but I am not privy to any of the money matters or subscription or trials etc. etc. not an employee here but an independent tech. that gets paid by this website once you rate me for my help .

Please use this link or phone number for these questions, i have absolutely nothing to do with billing here;
