Question about Televison & Video
As you have noted, something is clearly loose or burned. However, it is very difficult to say how easy it will be to fix. The bottom line here is it may be easy to fix (for a TV repair person) but if it is something like a cold solder joint, that may still take hours to locate, even if they can.
A 10 year old TV is going to be analog only and are you aware that over the air analog will be gone in a few months?
If you are getting the signal from a cable box of some sort, it might be worth finding a TV repair person to give it a try. A TV is not something I would ever suggest the uninformed try and repair as there are dangerous voltages running even when its switched off. If it were me, I would find the best repair person in the area for that brand and then find out what he charges per hour and I would limit the amount of time I authorize him to work on this set. It might be worth $100 to fix, but I sure would not want to spend $400 to fix it.
Also please tell me the brand and model no of your TV for the manual.
Please do accept this solution and revert for further assistance.
