The TV stopped turning on after only 4 years. Not under warranty anymore.
Researched and found the problem is usually the power supply ($178.00), or it could be the control board. I've also read where some have said its usually just 2 capacitors that go bad (about $1.50/ea.) Problem is, which 2?
I've got the back of the TV off and removed the protective cover to the PS. Only 4 screw and 4 plugs to swap it out....seriously easy.
I'm just worried about spending $180.00 and it doesn't fix it.
Anyone else had this issue? How did you fix it?
I hate to junk a $1200 TV after only 4 years, but dont want to blow my money on unnecessary parts either.
A note to help someone who still has one of these.
My old LVM-37w1 finally started to power off (no picture) after running for a while and then it just quit with nothing but the orange led one day. The problem with mine was on the power supply. A bad solder joint in the switching power driver section of the board on a capacitor lead.
