If it doesn't have LEDs for back-light, then probably a couple of fluorescents, and one could be bad. There are standard IC chips for driving those fluorescents,
That was exactly the problem. At least it was not an IC chip like before.

You had to replace some fluoro tubes? Where did you get them, are they a "standard" type?

Thanks for the info on TV. I have never torn into one like that, was curious what they actually looked like. I was surprised to see the tube "array", I thought it was just a couple of tubes along the screen edge(s). Maybe some are, don't know... Yeah, keep us advised on the new job.
