KevinWhiteJA :

Hi, welcome to Just answer

KevinWhiteJA :

Please tell me its complete model number

KevinWhiteJA :

and how old is it ?

Customer:

LET40T3.................. three years old. It is perfect when it eventually switches itself on.

KevinWhiteJA :

can you count the number of flashes

KevinWhiteJA :

or it just flashes continuously ?

Customer:

It is irregular. This morning it has flashed dozens of times. I simply unplug and switch it on. It then flashes again for a long time. Today it has taken me over 30 minutes of doing this repetitively. The picture has just come on.

KevinWhiteJA :

OK

KevinWhiteJA :

the problem is with the main board of the unit

Customer:

Are you still with me ?

KevinWhiteJA :

it seems the capacitors on the main board are bulged and causing this issue

KevinWhiteJA :

if you take the back off the unit you can check the main board

Customer:

I've just looked at the back of the TV. Do I unscrew all the screws around the edge of the back paNEL ?. Inother words. remove the entire back ?

Customer:

Can the main board be removed easily?

KevinWhiteJA :

Yes that is right

KevinWhiteJA :

if you are good with electronics then this is not a difficult job for you

Customer:

Do you have any idea of a guide price for such a board. I won't hold you to it - just guidance please

KevinWhiteJA :

well sometimes replacing the capacitors on board will usually solve the problem...a new board will cost around £115

Customer:

Will the capacitors be visually and obviously damaged to the naked eye

KevinWhiteJA :

Yes but sometimes testing the board is also required

Customer:

OK. thanks for your guidance.

No thankyou. So far so good. how do I get back to you should I need to?
