Question about Panasonic PT-40LC12 40" Rear Projection HDTV
I'v spent $500. to have rebuild of ballast on this TV. Now I'm told that additional boards must have been damaged and that the repair facility needs to order a "kit" from Panasonic so they can hopefully find the problem. This will be an additional charge of $400. . The set stopped working while I was watching it one day. Tried to restart but nothing the fan did not even come on but the green button on the front of the set would flash. In your opinion is it wise to proceed with further repair or am I getting scammed?
Wild4art Did the service center replace these ballast and the set worked for you for awhile?? Or did they say that they replaced the ballast transformers and now the set needs adD.. If its the later yes it sounds like someone misdiagnoised the set ordered the expensive transformer and now are sticking them to you even though you MAY(?) not need them. Its a hard call without seeing the set. How old is this set? if its not to old I would contact panasonic and tell them what this service center is saying and have them investigate as panasonic is very strict with there servicers. Try the # I posted or look in your owners manual for the service department.. Good Luck 800-211-PANA
