So What’s Your Problem ?

So What’s Your Problem ?

What information to have when seeking tv repair advice.

It always amazes me when customers call for repair, and they don’t know who the tv is made by. …or when it was made… or the model number. By law, all TVs and bigscreens have to list on a label on the back of the product, these 3 things.

Why this is Important

After servicing electronics for close to 30 years now, ALL manufactures have various common problems. Those problems varied from manufacture and year of manufacturing. Believe it or not, I can usually ( 90% of the time ) tell you what your problem is and a pretty exact price on how much your repair will cost. I will be able to assess if your unit can be repaired inhome or if it needs to go to the ship..

As a servicer committed to helping resolve your problems. Be kind and do due diligence and check for these essential numbers and dates. The more efficient we can be in resolving your problem, the LOWER your cost will be.

Whats Wrong With the TV ?

You will want to also make sure you can answer some additional questions, for they will help keep cost down

1) Is the set dead ?

2) How long does it take for the problem to appear ?

3) Has the set ever been worked on before ? If so, is this the same problem ?

4) Has the set ever been professionally cleaned ?

One of the most FAQ is, is it worth the repair ?  Providing information like age and model will give us a good idea, rather we can comfortably and securely repair your tv without fear of future problems. Some units are just too old and problematic to restore, however, some of the best big screen TVs were manufactured between 1995 and 2004, therefore depending on make and model, they will be a viable option for big screen repair and restoration.
