flip down TV

#1
Not sure if this is a DIY project or not, but here goes.

I have a flip down TV in the kitchen, which I think may be an LCD type. I have had it for a couple of years so it hasn't done bad, but it has recently gone "dark". I think it is an electrical problem, so not yet tried the hammer approach :D .

Sound is still fine, but the picture is really hard to see as the screen has gone really dark and you can just make things out so impossible to watch. I have wacked the brightness, and contrast up to the maximum to little avail, so I think it is something on the TV, however does anyone know if it is easily repairable (either by me, or a little man), or is it more of a write off and shop around for another to keep the boss happy?.

Buy her a radio, she should be looking at the roast cooking in the oven anyway!

It could be the inverter - not too expensive, or difficult to replace ...... If you can find a straight replacement! If it's the backlight knackered it can be fixed but not for the amateur. Depending on size, might be reasonable to just replace.

Sounds like the backlight has gone ,
If you can get spares for it then yup i,m sure it can be repaired.
As for cost i really wouldn't have a clue, it may work out cheaper to get a new one.

kind regards

Cheers, I did give the screen a clean in case it made any difference, but to no avail.

I am a bit of a fiddler, so happy to take something apart and start soldering bits back together, but if it is more of a specialised job, I might be better off having a nose around the shops.

Cheers all
