did that
no succes
TV Technician: Anthony_Infotech, Technician replied 29 days ago

Clearly and judging by the lead up to this failure the main-board is bad and will need to be replaced is this something you think you can do yourself?

The only obstacle here is you are in S America so I do not know of suppliers there,its something you would need to google once you have the part-number of the board,let me know if you would be comfortable doing this
