black screen on tv


Recommended Posts

ok,

so im watching tv and suddenly the screen goes dead dark,

sound is fine, and if the room is pitch back i can just about make out some of the picture,

Im assuming this is the backlight that has gone,

is it an economical fix?

its an LG 49" smart tv,

 

:C

I know of someone selling the same TV for £20. Volume control doesnt work though.

 

 

 

 

At that price you can't turn it down :slap
