ok. The tv is about 3 years old. Do you think with thw cost of the power board plus the time of a technician it would be more cost affective getting a new tv?
Sorry for delayed response.. it might work for long time ... if the repair costs exceed more than 120-150 I recommend buying a new one ________________________________________________________________________________________If you have further questions I will be pleased to assist you ..
