I would not be able to do work myself, I am 76, is it much of a job. The set is 3 years old, is the job worth doing?

Graham yes its a 42 inch an its a known issue.

I would estimate the costs to replace the powerboard (most common of the two boards) at around £100_£150

Use your local yellow pages and find a reputable company that way.

I am sorry its nothing easier
