Hi, welcome to Just answer

KevinWhiteJA :

KevinWhiteJA :

KevinWhiteJA :

or does it remain pinkish with a black screen on the right hand side

Customer:

KevinWhiteJA :

ok, how good are your DIY skills ?

KevinWhiteJA :

can you test some parts with a meter ?

Customer:

good with diy, but not tvs, have no meter, is it worth while to call in a technician?

Customer:

pls see attached picture

Customer:

My son says it is a write off , but I don't accept that before I know what may be wrong

KevinWhiteJA :

This is a common problem with Plasma's after few years..it is possible that this is just a bulged capacitor issue or replacing the board completely can also solve the problem...the voltages to some boards have to be checked..a repair might cost you around £110 however, it will depend on the part that requires repair/replacement

Customer:

thanks, XXXXX XXXXX recommend a wayto get a technician

KevinWhiteJA :

to start TV should be unplugged then you will have to take the back off the unit...then first thing is to check the large circuit board

KevinWhiteJA :

you can contact LG or www.supertronics.co.uk to get a quote for repair

KevinWhiteJA :

You can get back to me if you need any assistance and I will help with no additional charges.....

Customer:

Thanks

Customer:

thanks will do
