Intermittent Backlight Failure. Please help
So, I have been having an intermittent black screen for about a year now. It’s a tv in the basement, so we don’t use it much (mainly because it doesn’t work at times).
Sometimes I will turn the tv on and the picture will come up and other times it won’t come on. When the tv is on black screen, obviously I can see a picture with a flashlight and the sound still works because the picture comes back on, eventually. I usually have to keep the tv on for a few days before the picture comes back. It’s almost like the tv has to warm up before the backlights fire on.
it usually will turn on the next day after I have used it the night before, but if I were to wait a few days in between turning it back on I will normally have a black screen. Once again, I have sound and I do see a picture when the screen does go black.
Any ideas where I should start?
