I would like an explanation and is it fixable? I noted several other comments posted that said it is not fixable and one that said if you are handy with electronics you could take apart the TV and etc etc. Really???? Come on.
DC

Hi DC,

It could be possible to fix but you would need a certified technician to take apart the TV.
