#3: An image comes on the screen, but is not correct color, or has strange shadowing or lines in the picture.. This is usually more of a
major type of problem, but not necessarily a death sentence to the TV.. Some units, such as plasma TV's can be fixed with this
condition, others, such as LED sets, may be a little more tricky, but its not unheard of to be able to fix these.. It all depends on what a
thorough troubleshooting and diagnonis will uncover.
#4: A DLP or LCD projection screen, such as a Mitsubishi or Samsung DLP TV comes on, but the screen is dark.. This is usually a pretty
quick fix, which is inexpensive for the customer, but should be performed by a qualified technician to ensure that the correct
parts are installedand all the necessary servic eprocedures are followed to prevent repeat failure.

#6: Intermittant power, it comes on slowly or takes a while to turn on, sometimes clicking, and eventually stays on - very common is
Samsung, LG and many other TV's. This is usually quite fixable, but definitely needs a professional troubleshoot to fully repair
the issue with the PC boards.
#7: No Audio or sound.. This can be a board issue, usually is, but can be the speakers or the setting in the telvision's menu as well.
#8; Cracked screen on an LCD,LED or PLASMA TV.. NEVER FIXABLE, ALWAYS better to replace the TV.. We hate to bring you bad news,
but, the cost of the screen assemblies is just too expensive, not worth fixing!!
