Hello
TV Technician: Anthony_Infotech, Technician replied 4 months ago

I am afraid you do have a back-lighting issue with the set that wil need service, if you need a tech www.tvrepairpros.com will locate a tech in your area, however you need to consider the age of the set before injecting repair money into it,the set is older than 5 years and it may not be a good idea what do you think?

Ok thank you
TV Technician: Anthony_Infotech, Technician replied 4 months ago

Sorry for bad news here back-lighting issues can be expensive

A positive rating at this point is welcome of 5 stars (hopefully) with the rating bar of stars at the top of the page thank you,the site will then release a payment to me thanks again,note question remains open for 30 days
