The limiting factor in repair these days isn't really time (though it is significant) it's the parts, open up your TV and see what you actually replace in there. Even if you have the skills to replace SMD components you won't know what part you need and even if you did by some miracle find the part number you couldn't buy a replacement as they aren't made any more as the fabrication plants are making newer components now. So unless you want buy a complete power supply/motherboard/screen for basically the price of a new device you can't repair it. If you can find a similar model you might be able to swap out parts but model numbers change fast these days as well.

The best way to accelerate a Macintoy is at 9.8 meters per second per second.
