    First time it has died. About 4 years old. The screen is now all green.

    What brand is it? A 4-year-old TV shouldn't be doing that. I just hope I don't have the same brand.

    dunno, never done it.

    I dont know if the cost to fix it would be worth it, or you might just be better off with a new tv.

    All green screen? Is it still dark? (does it seem like there's a light behind there?)

    Its light green. Doing research on it most signs point to a bad chip. So need to find someone to fix it. Tried to get a new and wife didnt seem to happy about that.

    Re: My TV is sick question

    A lot of times tv repairs, when out of warranty, cost almost as much as buying new.

    Also, i think now is about the time where the new tv model year starts coming out, so deals start popping up on slickdeals and amazon for last years models.

    You need an old priest, a young priest, and a mirror. Usually isn't that expensive, depending on how big a mirror you get
