    What's wrong with my TV.............aaaaaargh

    hi, for the past couple of days when i turn my 3 year old samsung lcd it switches on/off/on/off/on/off several times before eventually turning on, but today it kept doing this for 15 mins before turning on.

    What could be wrong?

    had a customer whose tv (samsung le40r74bdx) was doing the exact same and it just needed new capacitors . i work for an independent electrical company i could find out how much it cost to fix if it helps

    My 50"samsung plasma is only just a year old and is doing the same thing

    it cost £150 with vat and labor , but as it could be a number of things u would need it looked at by a service agent . if u have good house insurance maybe wise going through them and paying the excess . the cost of repair could range from £100-£350 so u might wanna buy a new tv instead of throwing money at a faulty one .

    if you do go for a new tv go for a panasonic (5 year gt) or sony (3 year gt) that way u dont have to worry if something happens

    good luck

    thats the only thing about these free limited warranties, folks.
    no specified turnaround time.
    fine if its not your main tv or you have a decent sized spare.

    but if you don't, you're waiting what? a week or so for it to be picked up and then maybe up to 4 weeks for it to be fixed.

    still, i guess thats why they're free. you want better service, you have to pay.
    i don't believe all these free 3 & 5 year warranties are the gold that people on here seem to think they are.

    am actually surprised they do a home pickup service, but i suppose it'll all just come off the same repair bill.

    paying for a warranty certainly doesn't speed up the repair , not even in the slightest . its circumstantial , if your tv breaks and you ring sony they will pick it up the next day if they are in the area if they aren't close by they will pick it up as soon as same as panasonic . most manufactures have a lead time of 6 weeks which is deemed a reasonable amount of time to take to repair a tv and unless you can prove there was an inherent fault theres not much can be done . you would think thats all i sit here in work sorting out :thumbsup:

    Get a new tv its cheaper than fixing nowadays.
