Found a panasonic plasma smart, hdtv,1080 p, 60z, on side of the road. picked it up and took it to my repair guy. He told me $200 to fix it. Is it worth it or forget it?

Can't find one available for sale to price.
Can you buy a 50" plasma or any other kind of 50" tv for $200?
Does your repair guy offer warranty on his services?

I have a 32 inch LCD TV from Sanyo. There is no display and there is a smoke behind the TV. The guy who came to fix the issue told me that the entire PCB is to be changed. Is this true? If yes, how much...

Your repairer is likely to be entirely correct, without examining the tv directly it's impossible for anyone on FixYa to say he's wrong. Although the circuit board might be repairable, the extra time involved in tracing and fixing the fault will often be higher than any savings made by fixing the part. A repaired pcb with heat damage is also far more likely to cause additional problems in the near future which may not be presently evident, so the prospect of a further call-out for unpaid remedial work means that most repairers will not be interested in repairing the pcb.

Repair costs depend entirely upon local labour rates, taxes, and parts costs, and as you haven't said which country you're in it's impossible to give an opinion. Replacing the board should take under an hour, but many repairers will often clearly state that their minimum charge is for one hour and then charge for additional time in complete half hour units. Expect the total repair cost to be a little in excess of around 50% of the cost of a replacement tv. If it's lower than that then count it as a bonus.

The picture has become blurry and the colors are seperating. Is there an easy fix to the problem? Replacement bulb?

It is an easy problem to repair and it should not be too much in cost, So call up your local Tv repair guy and have him do a diagnostic.
He will tell you whats wrong and how to fix it and what cost

My rca L32HD31 tv stopped working suddenly no sound no picture just A yellow light on I took it to repair center said it was the converter and can"t get part I am A recovering cancer patient hardly watched...

With no sound and no picture it would not be the INVERTER, (no such part as "converter") You have a main board problem and it would cost around $300 to fix. These flat panel sets only last about 2 years, as much as they cost! You need to get a older type CRT television, pawn shops, tv shops, and yard sales have these, they are made much better than these newer sets and last 10 to 15 years or more. They also can be cheaply repaired when they breakdown.

No picture

Plasma TVs are sophisticated, compact assemblies with persistent high voltages inside. Repairs are expensive no matter where you go. All the parts are proprietary.
If you Google your model number and find similar reports of problems, buy a different set.

Hi.42" lg plasma tv , i cracked the screen. can this be repaired?

Bad news.. you might as well go get a replacement TV. You can have it repaired using a TV Repair guy but often it costs as much as a brand new LCD. My daughter broke my $1,600 LCD. It would have cost $1,200 to fix.. so I just bought a new one.After that I picked up a TV screen protector called TV Armor Its designed to protect the TV from damage. Now I dont have to worry anymore when she is playing near it. It works really well.

Same problem...

If its dead completely no lights nothing to show power at all....then its the power supply. if your seeing a blinking light of some sort its probably a code. you can figure out what it means if you download the service manual.
Dont forget to include an extended warranty to the price of your TV! if you see a tv for 500 with the extended warranty and tax it could cost up to 750$ or more

Polaroid purple screen

I started to experience this problem as well. Eventually one day I turned my screen on and all the colors were crazy. Purple, Blue Yellow Green. I thought my TV was broken but then I noticed as well that the menu was not displaying the same issue. After messing with the menu for about 30 minutes I found the solution.

Go to SETTINGS. Then go down to DEFAULT. Select default and everything will be fixed.... for now. I think unplugging the TV over and over screwed up the settings. Hope this helps.
