Hello Please BE aware This is tech information service. you are paying for the benefit of my real world experience and can save you time and money
There is no picture tube
this is a plasma tv
and you could have many issues to casue this
the cheapest repair will run 200.00
the most exspensive that is within reason 500.00
ad beyond that the plasma panal will not be worth any repair if its bad
youll need a meter and a lot of skill repairing electronics
or you can refer to a servicer
if it were mine i would go the cheaper repair beyond that
i would replace the tv
the power board could be he culprit and fits the 200.00 repair scenario
any more info will require hands on troubleshooting to be more specific
thanks for using JAIf you have further questions
ill get the message
With the cost of TV's going down do you think it would be best to just get a new TV?? What would you do if it were you??
as I posted above
I would repair it if it did not exceed the 200.00 mark
If I have a repairman come to my home to service the TV what is the usual charge just to diagnose the problem? I can't take that big TV myself to a shop. I don't want to pay out $100 just to find out the repair would cost me $200 or more on top of that.
thats up to you
typical service charge is anywhere from 50-100 depending on how far you are from servicer
if you dont feel like investing in it then the servicer will not either ....so your best bet is to get a new tv
The TV is 7 - 8 yrs. old......I think I'll get a new one. Thank you for your help.
Thanks for using JA I would reccomend a LED tv over a PLASMA they dont last as long as yours did anymore
