Yes, I was betreger. Tax time is next month, so less will be available, I'm paying down 2 at a time, everyone else is getting their minimums, which varies. I hope I can apply for an Liheap check in 2018, I could use it, to replace a window here.

Ok the TV is turned around, yes It needs vacuuming, and I could barely lift the TV an inch. Sorry about the bad pic, it's a smart phone pic. Looks like maybe 20 screws.
The stand swivels some, but not a lot. At least the TV fits on the modified Gusdorf TV stand, but then this stand used to have a 4th shelf at one time, since the TV stand
was made for a 27" TV at most, but this way a larger TV can be used, and a 27" weighed more than this TV, and isolates the TV from earthquakes,
there is one steel bolt in each corner, each bolt goes from top to bottom, I've had 2 earthquakes happen here, both at about 90 degrees to each other.

Good, the only other thought is I hope you are being most aggressive on the cards with the highest interest rates.

Yes, one is a secured card, and the other just has a high limit.

There is wiggle room in the words "off topic".

Say I began a thread about widgets. In the original post I state, this is a thread about widgets. If you want to talk about widgets, please do so here. Post unrelated to widgets will be removed.

As the OP, I have the right to red-flag posts about what-it's because they are off topic in my thread about widgets.

Perhaps I will be magnanimous, take the high road and ignore all your what-it's posts in my widget thread. This does not take away my right to red flag your off topic post in my widget thread. It just means that I have chosen not to bother with your what-it post today.

Glad to see you've managed to pay your rent. Was that one or two month's money? I remember you saying there was an issue with a recent rent bill being stuck at their end of the chain and can't recall the resolution.

Ran out of time?
Had visitors?
Fine control of wrists gave out?
Got bored?
etc.
Any one of a long list of things that have no impact on the ability to drive.

Why do certain SETI fanboys not have to follow the rules? The double standard is alive and well here.

No, that was 1, I've always been on time. The last manager and the park had a problem, the park is using tenants as managers here, help is hard to find. Which I suspect is why Eddie World in Yermo is not open yet, they have not found either enough employees or enough qualified employees or some combo of the two.

Right now I just have a sour stomach, I had to up the heat here to stop coughing and making excess amounts phlegm, which is not digestible, and yes I feel terrible, though not as bad as yesterday.

Although an ankle can be limiting, in this case the right ankle, the stiffer it gets, the harder it gets to drive.
The ankle that was operated on was My left ankle, the right was never operated on.

Ok I got the metal back off of the TV, disconnected the 2 cables, and removed the last 5 screws, I hope this wasn't a waste of time and energy, cause I'm soaked.

The left cable was hard to unhook, the top was easy, different connectors. The main board is the green board on the left, the power board location is on the right, the new board is in the bag, the old board is on the aquarium. I just hope the main board is ok, since it controls picture and sound, while the power board supplies power for everything else, including the led backlighting. The main board is hard to find, I'm watching a used one for $109.28 delivered, there is one for the moment elsewhere, but at just over $300.00, forget that for the moment.

And the screws, well they are divided into color and size, 5 silver, and the rest are black and of 2 sizes, at least I know where all of them go, right now they are all on top of the aquarium.

And even though I took My pills earlier, I'm melting, or at least I feel like I am. And since My throat is feeling a bit raw, I sprayed it with some throat spray.

Glad to see you are making progress on your TV.
Just don't overdo it - it sounds as if you've managed to pick up a bug recently, so take care.

I just replaced the power board, I get power, and sound, I hooked up a coax cable for a signal, I have not reinstalled the metal back plate yet, this is for testing, I get some picture, mostly dark, shopjimmy.com said My power board that I sent them is good, even though when I bought the board it was listed as bad on ebay. The red led is not, I repeat not blinking.

So I hope I just have to replace the back, and that the LED's are just washed out, cause I can see some picture, just not much.

And yes I'm cooler now. And I'm tired too.

That doesn't sound promising - you should be able to see the back light LEDs even in daylight. Look carefully at the edge of the screen where it goes into the housing and you should be able to see them glowing. Likewise masking around the red (power?) LED with your hand, or a bit of paper you should be able to see it quite clearly.

Yeah, ShopJimmy seems to think it might be a main board problem, that's the green board on the left, the power board only nominally gives power to the leds, the main board does the rest, I'm told a double failure is not impossible. If so that would be some $, yes it would be a setback, but if I want a fully working TV I may just have to spend the money, and no ShopJimmy does not repair main boards, I asked, I was referred somewhere, but that website is for sale, so that is a dead end.

I can see something, and I can hear everything one can expect to hear, I'm also told not to waste time with the menus, like I can see them, the picture is too dark to see any menu.

I found 3 main board on ebay for sale, yep, all are used, one is an auction, the other two offer "or Best Offer", the auction I asked a question of the seller, since I need a working BN94-04358P main board, and the for auction says both UN55D6050 and UN46D6000SF, but does not say BN94-04358P, and more importantly it looks like My board and is tested 100% functional, bidding is at $33.56 w/1 bid, shipping is $9.75 and there are about 5 hrs and 26 mins left in the auction.
