Does this help KDL 40s 2010

Hopefully you have re-booted the set unplug from wall-power wait 5 mins re-plug back in again if you have and from what your saying it sounds like the main-board is bad now to have a tech do this will be around $250, the set is quite old and even an injection of $100 (the basic cost of the board)may not be a good idea for a set of this age?if you dis-agree I will be happy to help you replace that main-board just let me know

Anthony
