Up for acquisition to someone familiar with repairing an LCD/LED TV is my 1080p Insignia 39" LED TV. I bought this set brand new at Best Buy on 9-3-2012. The original receipt that is included in the sale says that I paid $367.98 out the door. It's been a trouble-free TV up to the time when suddenly the picture stopped displaying although the sound continued to work. For the record, this set has only been used for "over-the-air" HD TV stations in the local area and was viewed by my 96-year-old mother-in-law all of its life. Since it's in excellent cosmetic condition, I decided to try to repair it myself. I purchased all 4 electronic boards inside the TV (the Power Board, the Timing Control Board, the LED Driver Board, and the Main Board). Unfortunately, none of these replacement boards corrected the issue so I was able (fortunately) to return 1 out of 4 of the replacement boards (the other 3 boards can be purchased for what I paid for them, which is about $40 or if you don't want to donate towards what I paid I'll still let you have the boards for free).

Moving on, I've now determined that this is the best that I could do, so it's now time to donate it to someone who has an electronics background and hopefully they can repair the set. I've also deduced, after much time and effort spent in research, that the main issue with the TV was that some of the LED's on the LED light strip had burned out. So, I also replaced that at a cost of about $25. At this point, I'm unsure of what might also be wrong with the set that prevents it from working.

This Insignia TV has 3 HDMI ports (1 with ARC-Audio Return Channel), one USB port, 1 Audio-Out jack for headphone use, Component Video and Analog Audio ports, Composite Video and Analog Audio ports, 1 Digital Output port, AV-In ports, a PC-In VGA port, and the antenna/coax cable port. Please be aware that the width of the unit is advertised as 2.7" on the box but when it's set up on its stand, the stand itself is 8.9" wide.

With all that being said, the set comes with everything that it came with when I purchased it brand new in September of 2012. This includes the original box and packaging Styrofoam inserts, the special "soft-cover" for the TV screen, the original owner's manual (they included a printed manual back then, unlike today), the "Quick Start" guide (English and Spanish versions), the original store receipt, the stand/base for the TV, and 2 remote controls (one has a few buttons that are hard to push-takes AAA batteries). The screen is perfect and there are no dents, dings, scratches, or otherwise any defects that I can see. I even left the protective plastic on the perimeter of the set to protect it even further. I truly believe that this TV is worth repairing if you can do it yourself. My thoughts are that even if you just needed one or more of the boards inside the set for a repair to a similar TV that you own, it would be worth the trip to come get this TV. These boards are hard to find and can get expensive, as you would see if you looked around a bit.

Please note that I prefer not to text and strongly encourage phone calls for any questions that you might wish to ask. Thanks for looking; take care and God bless.
