Not at this time

If you received a $26 phone offer or any offers they are automated by the website ,NOT BY ME and WITHOUT MY KNOWLEDGE , 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 .

The power is going off and on not the screen going black

This looks like a power supply circuit problem but the main board could also be in cause , ii give this an 80% for the power supply

Are you going to work on this yourself or would just like to have an idea of the parts and costs involved ?

Ask Your Own TV Question

Can you check the tv`s serial number and tell me if it starts with DS1 ?
