From what I've been able to gleen from here and other sites, it's possibly just a dodgy solder joint. Does the panel think it's something I could check/fix myself, or is it qualified techy only? (I know basic electronics but that's at component level rather than what you get when you join 'em all together to make something that works:( )

Can you solder neatly?

as a tv engineer myself i prefer people to get qualified engineers to repair their tv's.i have had too much stuff coming into the workshop with the customer saying "i had a go myself but now it isnt working".--this is an easy repair though

I would much rather get a tv engineer to do it, but it's a case of "once-bitten, twice-shy" I'm afraid. Several years ago a local shop charged me £60 for a VCR repair which I later found out was just an internal fuse replacement :(
