Get estimates but as the price fell to less than the shop counter fee you don't see these repaired unless it's in warranty.
Samsung Smart TV
Model code UN32F5500AFXZA
TV has sound but no picture. A very dimly lit picture blinks in and out every 7 seconds, then blinks back to black. Before it went out completely, it would occasionally blink off completely, and then come back on.
When viewing the tv from the back, there’s a faint light that blinks on when the picture blinks on showing through the vents. The light appears at the upper left and the right corners of the back of the tv vents. But back lights in general are not working.
There’s blue light activity at the bottom, showing through the vents.
Everything else works - sound, able to change channels, just no picture or rather no picture that stays on the screen.
Approximately how much would it cost to repair this tv by a professional? Or is it possible to find a replacement part for the defective part and install myself?
