Hi, welcome to Just answer
Please tell me its complete model number
and how old is it ?
LET40T3.................. three years old. It is perfect when it eventually switches itself on.
can you count the number of flashes
or it just flashes continuously ?
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.
the problem is with the main board of the unit
Are you still with me ?
it seems the capacitors on the main board are bulged and causing this issue
if you take the back off the unit you can check the main board
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 ?
Can the main board be removed easily?
Yes that is right
if you are good with electronics then this is not a difficult job for you
Do you have any idea of a guide price for such a board. I won't hold you to it - just guidance please
well sometimes replacing the capacitors on board will usually solve the problem...a new board will cost around £115
Will the capacitors be visually and obviously damaged to the naked eye
Yes but sometimes testing the board is also required
OK. thanks for your guidance.
