I'm screaming your praises!! WOW! I plugged my TV in and bammo! The picture came on bright and beautiful. What a relief! YOU saved me some money and headache.

I love this site! $9 instead of a repairman or new/used frig can't be beaten. This older woman will worry less now that she knows about this site. Bless you all.
