Question about Televison & Video

14 month old Prima 36 inch lcd tv takes 2+ hours before on.

Hi.

I bought a Prima 37t26 LCD tv about 14 months ago, (with a 12 month warranty through Sears).

Go figure, two months after the warranty expires, I have trouble.

When I power on the tv it takes upwards of two hours to get any response, (except for the ''Prima'' symbol changing from red to blue). Once it does finish powering on the tv works fine, but the time involved is getting longer.

Sears has flat-out turned down any requests for help, and Pirma's support web site just doesn't work.

Any suggestions as to a course of action? I am willing to attempt repairs, (I live in a very small town without any sort of appliance repair depot), as long as it has a reasonable level of difficulty.

Thanks!

    Thanks, but I have already tried this option, only to be told that Sears would not offer any sort of extended warranty on the tv unless I purchased the tv with a Sears credit card.

    Any other ideas?

    Thanks again!

If you purchased the warrenty extra above the cost of the tv Sears will allow you to purchase another extended warrenty. Contact them and let them know your extended warrenty ran out and you would like to buy another. I would leave out the part about the tv being broken.

Do i have any rights if a new clutch was fitted 14 months ago and now i need another new one ?


Only if the manufacturers warranty is for over 14 months. Industry standards are ususally 3-12 months. A Clutch is a wear item that can go bad from abuse, so it is unlikely there is any warranty.

Hi, I have a LN52A850 which i purchased over a year ago. The 1 year warranty has expired. Almost a month ago i spotted a pink thin horizontal line on the middle of the screen while watching it. It stays...


The display is controlled by the T-CON board. You may have faulty contacts on the connector for this board or a bad board. If the connector is cleaned it may improve. Sometimes disconnecting and reconnect the cable can solve the problem. The heating/cooling cycle from turning on the set can make the contacts loose.
IF you know how to work on electronics you can do it yourself or if you have a friend with working knowledge of electronics.

Volume in the tv is not working, and you turn the tv on or off it comes three to four minutes later. The tv was bought nine months ago, it's an LCD 42 inches MODEL #42MF439B/F7


If it is nine months old the set must still be under warranty, the problem you are describing is an intermittent audio problem and can be difficult to locate. I recommend getting in touch with the people you bought it from and get the satisfaction you deserve.

If you are sure the warranty is expired, the cost will be somewhere between $50-150 US. Although it is early for this kind of failure, either the fluorescent back-light or the inverter for it is likely dying.

Tv just went out i bought it back in febuary was wondering if it has a factory warrenty


If your tv unit is less than 12 months old then it comes with a manufacturers warranty, its a standard regulation and its mandatory that they offer at least 12 months warranty.
As long as you have the receipt stating the date or purchase, unless they have a computer record of store purchases, they will be able to honour your warranty.
I hope this helps you in some way. Also read my tip about warranty companies and what to do if you cant reach a satisfactory level of service. Good luck..

Take it back to where you bought it if it's still under warranty, they are obliged to fix it!
