We agree with Tim. We have a 50 Vizio Plasma. Last Friday the picture shut off. Every electronic repair shop we called laughed when we said it was a vizio and they said good luck. Talked with Vizio, The quoted repair cost was $650+ and it only has a 90 day warrantyl. Paid $2488 + tax for it 2/5/06.

We opted for a new TV and bought the 5 year extended warranty.

Wouldn't buy a vizio if my life depended on it. Check out good name brands such as Sony, Panasonic, Hitachi, and Mitsubishi. no matter what you get its going to brake. I would recommend a 5year extended warranty with any new set you get these days. Also get LCD not plasma!
Let me know if you have more questions or if you have a certain model number you are looking at. With your price point in minde you most likley will need to look at a 42" in these brands. Dont think you will get anything bigger than that. Let me know!

    Unless you find a good deal your going to pay somewhere around $2000 + warranty. for a set that I would put in my home.

    check out this website as well. If I were going to buy a set I would probably buy it here. They also have a outlet section for clearance and refurbished tv's I would most likely buy one from there and get the 5 year warranty with it to save some money. let me know?

My 40 inch screen broke i need a new one

It will be best to buy a new TV, rather than trying to make this tv right. The screen will cost about 2/3rd of the total cost of the TV. You have to spend for it + Service charges. Calculate the total amount you might have to spend to make this TV right.

The screen is black and the power indicator light blinks

me too! i got the caps replaced and the tv still doesn't work. the main board is like $200 dollars. hdtvs are getting way cheap these days. i dont think its worth it. samsung is a terrible company for not doing the right thing and extending the warrenties when they dropped the ball on this one. why should we spend more? i recommend buying a new tv and never buying a SCAMsung product again.

We have lost the base for our 19'' pro flat screen tv can I buy another base instead of wall mounting it ? Where can I buy it from ?

you need to know the brand company. then go to the company service store. to give a spare. but normaly they normaly dont sell spares (because it´s a old model and dont make anymore). it´s the way is companys work now. only sell new sets.(box).

Had my tv looked at by a technician and they said it needed a new main power supply,it was to expensive to fix so i bought a power supply and instaled it but it dont work what can i do

Usually there is a warranty period like 30 days.Ask for a replacement if that dont work either there is another problem goin on.Then just ask for your money back,there is sometimes a restocking fee.

its gonna be cheaper for u to buy a new TV than buy a replacement panel if your looking to buy one I highly doubt you will be able to find one under $1500 and thats not including the shipping charge for a panel that weights 80 lbs. Best bet is too buy a new TV.
