thank you IN ADVANCE !!
Well, thats 12 years ago...and in human years that a blink of an eye..in TV years, its a lifetime. It sounds as though the power supply is leaking AC into the circuits.
That being said...now what. The reason that TV repair shops are dropping like flies, is that there is no way to make money in TV repair. The local repair shop here charges $75.00...JUST TO DO A QUOTE. Now, I can mosey down to Wal-Mart, and buy a really nice TV for around $150 that is bigger, and looks better than my dead one...so what are MOST people going to do. Ok, I know...a wal-Mart TV isnt probibly going to last as long as your old one...as a matter of fact, it will probibly last only about 4-6 years, but, it costs probibly a quarter of what you paid for your original TV, and only a bit more than you will pay for your TVs repair.
Even a small repair is going to take 2 hours, and at 35-45$ a hour..it just aint worth it. As well, to keep costs down, most manufacturers are dropping any sort of parts support, or tech support, so specific parts are getting impossible to find.
....its a whole new world...electronically that is!
