Soldering isn't welding; which is an actual trade. I learned how to solder pretty quickly at a job I once had.

It does take some skill to do it well, which comes with practice, but there is no real risk involved unless you drop the hot soldering iron in your lap. Safety tip: don't solder in the nude.

A person just can't repair the internal circuitry of a TV, if they don't know what they're doing. YouTube videos are fine for minor household repairs, but there some things that only a professional should do. The TV is 10 years old, and it will be economical to buy a new one.
The TV is already dead, so your analogy about heart surgery really doesn't apply here.

As the TV is already dead, and long out of warranty, he has NOTHING to lose by attempting to repair it. He might even learn a useful skill in the attempt. Like soldering.

We got a free 32" Toshiba Regza to tide us over. Probably also 10+ years old. But it works. It beats using our outdoor projector on the wall, which we had been doing.

I got a 55" Hisense U8G last December, after doing research, and I'm in love with it. At almost $800, it wasn't exactly cheap, but it's loaded with features of pricier sets. There's probably a newer model out by now, but if not, I recommend the U8G.

Unhappy [HELP] Samsung TV Not Connecting To Wi-Fi

I'm having an odd problem with my Samsung 43-inch Smart TV. Since last evening, it has stopped connecting to Wi-Fi. After rebooting the TV several times, it is still not connecting to my Wi-Fi. Could anyone help me to resolve this issue? I would appreciate any kind of response. Thank you!
