Question about Flat Panel Televisions

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.

Tv is on with no picture or sound, only 4 months old!!


Hello
The power supply regulator board to your set has the fault. If you try to open the set, or try to repair it by yourself, the warranty will void. The set must have warranty as it is new. Why do you spend for it? Just contact the nearest authorised service center for Sceptre. the components in this set will be very hard to get from open electronic spare part market, and will costly too.

Vertical lines on my 40 inch lcd mitsubishi hdtv 1080


Similar problem with an eleven and a half month old LT-40148. Approx. 1 inch vertical banding line on left side of screen on all inputs. After about two weeks, same problem on the right side of the screen.

Fortunately this occurred two weeks prior to the one year warranty expiring.

Called Mits customer service and they referred me to an authorized service center who I happened to have dealt with before.

They picked up the set. The front panel (LCD screen ) had to be replaced. Set was gone for two weeks as parts were not in stock. There was no charge. I hope this screen last more than a year.

42'' LG Plasma bought in Australia doesn't work in UK?


Find out if Australia uses a different standard of HD programming than Guernsey or not since it's not picking up any channels at all with an attenna. Does the skybox use only scart connections and that's how your small lcd is connected to it?

Vertical Black line 3 inch width on Plasma Samsung 42C96HD after 2 months of use


I also have the same problem I phoned Samsung today to explain the tv was only 14 months old, they didn't wanna no because it was out of warrenty by 2 months. I am getting a black solid line down the left hand side of the screen. I ended up phoning Dixons were we bought it from, they have told me to get an independent engineers report done & send the report to them within 14 days. Dixon told me it was a known problem with Samsungs. They said they will fix it free of charge if they can if not they will send vouchers to the same value of the television. So beware stay clear of Samsungs.
