Question about Televison & Video

1 Answer

ISF I looked into ISF - I live in Toronto Canada (born and raised in US) and there is only 1 tech in my area. He has never worked on this TV before and he charges $300 for a 2 pont and $400 for a 10 point calibration. That is only one input - each additioanl input is $125. Sohe would be $525 (Best Buy caught my attention as they were $300 for two inputs). From the settings you provided - could I expect to see much of a difference from a calibration (or enough to warrnt the cost). The ISF tech seemed really high (probably because he is the only one in the area). As to the Blu-Ray - I do have the s350 - great unit! So, are you ISF as well? What is your first name? Let me know what you think about my calibartions choices and if I should given the cost. Thanks, Dan

Hello Dan, My name is Cassidy and no im a male, my parents must have liked grateful dead or ***** cassidy no seriously though, i would definitely go with best buy, dont get me wrong they can tie their shoes, i guess i was being biased honestly now that i think about it let me retract my previous reply best buy geek squad honestly i think they would be a good pick they wont be the electronic illiterate kids you find selling stuff in the store atleast i would hope not no but if you think about it best buy is gonna spend money to train their geeks well one because they have it, no im not isf certified but one of my best friends is, i sound like alot of the guys on avs forum with my earlier best buy bashing, i would say call them get some info on gurantees,(if any honestly i dont know with them) let them come and ask the kid some general questions and watch all the way from 10 up to 100 when hes running and adjusting the scale youll know if he knows oh and when he gets there ask him how do you access the service menu the answer is hold menu on the remote while holding menu on tv password prompt will appear and here is the million dollar question whats the default password well ur the lucky guy its 0000 honestly there is alot of people out there stumped over that one go into ur menu regular menu and go to the password screen it will ask for ur password hit0000 then you can set ur own 4 number password theres alot of people on avs forum that cant figure that out, lol learning is 75 percent of the fun atleast to me, oh AND WHEN THAT sorry caps was on when the geek squads there ask him questions any that you want if hes like me you wont be able to get rid of him because i believe ur job should be ur passion, well theoretically. 300 for 2 inputs is standard but the way the economy is well isf guys gotta eat.. This is a good set i took back a pz85 panny plasma for this tv if that says anything well the panny plasmas have way to much noise must still be using (genesis)faroudja processors, the lg on the other hand has a awesome processor very smooth hd and sd. i wonder which processor it uses huh theres my next adventure maybe if i get my kids to bed early enough lol.

best buy- yes my calibrations are good i wouldnt give you bad ones i give you my word i know you dont know but trust me principles are very important atleast to me, but all tvs differentiate somewhat tv from tv and yes the same model because the greyscale is set at the end of manufacturing. 400 for one input is way to much way to much.

I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
You can contact a local dealer that can be found in the yellow pages under vacuum or you can call the Kirby factory to see if they have a local dealer or can send out the part to you from the factory. I will give some examples listed below: Contact Us by Phone

Between the hours of 8:00 am to 5:00 pm EST
Monday thru Friday 1-800-328-9430 they can ship out the part if you need it and if you cannot find it anywhere else.
