    I looked for a buffer board for this brand of Hitachi but did not see anything that was specifically labed as such. Do you have any idea of how much one mught cost and how difficult it would be to replace it?

    Thank you.

No Picture on a Hitachi 42EDT41A

Then it is probably not cold solder joints. You wouldn't think that an lcd TV would need a high voltage transformer but it does. They are very small compared to CRT televisions but they power up the screen. Without it you have no backround light to veiw what is there. There are two neon lamps on either side of the screen but they rarley go bad. My guess is the transformer ot the power supply feeding it.
