Question about Televison & Video
Hi, well whenever this happens unfortunately it is a rather serious issue. Also the fact that it was gradual, also adds to the issue, as whenever it happens this way, the "Support" components are also stressed to the point of near failure also, (Resulting in extra Componentry that must be replaced that otherwise, may not, have had, to have been) this doesn't usually happen with a catastrophic failure, IE: One that instantly stops the set. usually the damage is contained.
With the FP sets there are No "Guns" that can be separately replaced, no, instead one must replace the entire display, if that's where the fault lays, and the entire color board if not, and on occasion BOTH.
Neither of these components are cheap, and there is also a likely hood of "Other" co-lateral damage due to the slow demise.
There is no realistic way to DIY a modern day set. and most often it is just a waste of time and money, and no guarantee of a result.
It is my professional recommendation that you take the set to an authorised service agent, contact a local or head office of the sets manufacturer, and ask for a referral. Now when at the repair shop always first ask for a "Quote" before allowing any repair work to be undertaken.
This way at least you will be able to make an informed decision as to repair or replace.
You see many of my customers these days prefer to put any monies that would have been spent on expensive repairs, towards a New set with a warranty.
However IF you do wish to DIY, then First you must obtain a service manual, for your make & model. and go from there, the manual will guide one as to exactly what to do.
