TV works just fine, once it comes on, it's just that it take 3-5 minutes to come on, and it's taking longer each time it get's turned on and off
TV Technician: Shahid, Technician replied 6 months ago

Thanks for the info, this kind of problem mostly occurs due to failing capacitors or devalued resistors on the power supply board of the TV and replacement of power supply board on TV will fix it. Please click the following link to view the power supply board image and part number info to search/ google it to get price info if you have a plan to do it yourself

I'm sorry there is no easy or quick fix for this problem and it is definitely hardware failure that needs defective board replacement to resolve the issue. I trust my input will help you out to make the decision about this TV repair or invest that money in new replacement TV.
If you have any additional questions, feel free to ask. If you're satisfied, please rate me a 5-star at the top of your page so I can get the credit for my work on the website.
Thank you.
