my tv model LE40M86BD SERIAL NO AJ3R3SKP500047N
Been to KNOWHOW as it keeps switching itself on and of after 10 min but they said parts are no longer available according to them (knowhow) as it needs a new Mainboard
Hello, my name is George..

What they have told you about the mainboard being at fault sounds correct for that type of issue... The mainboards are available from repairers, or you could send yours to be repaired..

There is one on ebay at the moment if you LOOK HERE

Please remember to rate any assistance given & kindly be patient whilst awaiting any responses from me as I'm not constantly available.

They have said mainboard no longer available and that cost £95


Knowhow will only let you know what is available as Brand-new from the manufacturer; they will not let you know about what is available as refurbished.

You also have the option of sourcing a repair of the current board in the TV from electrical repair shops that do 'Applied Electronics'
