    A friend of mine has a TV which went haywire on him. He has asked me to go over and take a look at it, but he lives a few hours away, so I want to know if it is worth the travel or not (I.e, whether it can be fixed or not).

    I have attached an image he sent to me on the fault of the tv. Its a pretty poor shot, taken from a camera phone but you can see what the problem is.

    I am wondering if its fixable? One would assume the power supply/backlights/panel are working fine as there is output (thinking its the inverter thats gone?), but really, I wouldn't know.

    Wondering if anyone has seen this or would know what the problem of it is.

    Thanks ;)

    almost looks like a messed up signal than a dieing monitor.

    Either a dodgy connection into the back or some dieing component in the video processing circuit.

    Actual LCD and backlight itself looks fine.
    Pinchy says thanks.

    Yeah thats what I was thinking, the panel and backlight looks fine.

    I don't think its a signal problem, unless the antenna connection has gotten loose or something.

    If its the video processing circuit, how hard is that to replace/fix?
