Question about Philips 26PF8946 26 in. HD-Ready LCD Television
After watching TV for about 45 mins right hand 1/3rd of screen breaks up and forms like a 'curtain' in either coloured stripes or black obscuring the picture. Rest of picture and sound is fine. If left overnight (to cool down I guess?) it comes on again in full screen for nearly another hour before repeating. Set just over 3 years old (warranty just expired!) Do you reckon its worth fixing? Any idea of cost. Is it possibly a 'board' I could replace myself? Thanks for any help
It sound like to me that one of the boards that power the bad side of the screen is getting hot and quitting. The boards are not too expensive to replace but getting them is generally the big problem. ( At least for our company). The set would be worth tkaing to a local shop and have it looked at, but replacement costs are going down every day it seems.
I hope in some way this has helped
