Hi and welcome to JustAnswer; an independent site with members providing product information, repair tips and technical assistance as a form of paid Q & A service.
My name is ***** ***** I'll be assisting you with your question.
I apologize for the extended wait time you experienced, I've only just come online now and would like to assist you with your question.

Ask Your Own TV Question

Initially, the described symptom of "...stripes and plaids marking on screen but won't make a picture..." almost always is indicative of an internal hardware issue.

The TV would be needing (substantial) repairs.

Are you then considering a DIY (do-it-yourself) repair approach? If yes, do you have access to and familiarity with a multi-meter (and even perhaps a soldering iron)?

I realize that the above information may perhaps be not what was expected. Unfortunately, there is no quick-n-easy fix and neither is there a workaround; sorry for having to be the bearer of bad news.

Perhaps a replacement rather than repairs would be more to your advantage.

Hi again,
Is further information / interaction still needed with the "...TV to Dish Network...."

I love this site! $9 instead of a repairman or new/used frig can't be beaten. This older woman will worry less now that she knows about this site. Bless you all.
