Bush tv won't power up. Burnt PCU

So i have a 40inch Bush tv model number LCD40884F1080P

Will not turn on or show any signs of life, opened it up and see a part of the power supply board burnt next to were the prongs in which the power supply is connected. I'm assuming it's going need a new PCU so if anyone has one for sale?

The question is what caused the Power supply to burn up. It could be a fault somewhere else in the circuitry which would burn up any new Power board.

If you need to ask that question then you don't have the expertise to try. Leave it to a professional is my advice.

I'll just search it up on youtube then, I'm no professional but I'm learning

Playing around inside a TV is dangerous even if switched off. You could easily get a fatal electric shock. U-Tube is not the fountain of all knowledge. Don't risk it is the best advice I can give.

you need to take it to a TV repair shop and get a quote, you're probably looking at £60-£80 there fore depending on the age of the TV it may be better to put the money towards a new TV.
