Should I just throw away these tvs

Two big screen projection tvs no longer work, are they worth paying a repairman to make a service call or should I just throw them away.

    Mine is a Sony, model KP-46XXBR35, it just doesn't turn on.
    My mom's is a Pioneer but I can't get it pulled out to see the other info. Hers won't turn on anymore either.
    We have these two tvs taking up a lot of space. If a repairman can pop the back off and easily see what the problem is then I can justify the cost but if it's goin to be a lot of trial and error type fixes I'd rather dump them both. Thank you for your help.

    Hey There,

    It depends on what you are interested in doing with them and how broken are they? Also what is the make/model# of them??

Where can we get a new screen for our tv? it cracked, but the lamps and everything else is still intact.

Sorry these tv are no longer in productions.But,if it is still do,not worth fixing etheir.Because the tv picture screen panel are 90% important to the tv functions and it is limited productions by the tvs corporations.The only place u can buy the tvs picture screen panels are by the tvs corporations themselves.Yes,they'll sell the picture screen panels to u,but prices will cost the same as a new tvs.Sorry if have a tv,have damages or broken tvs pictures screen panels.Ur tv is not worth a whole tv anymore.Only worth as salvages for it electronic boards for parts,that it.

How much is the tv worth used

If this TV is working fine...The first 250 to 300 bucks should be a reasonable high end price. Unfortunately if this TV has any kind of problem it may be worth much less.....50 bucks. And if it does not work...nothing! Everybody wants a new flat screen and will pay new prices to get one. The older projection and tube TVs are almost worthless now! Thanks for asking and show a few hands of support!

Sorry it a lost cause these DLP tvs are no longer in productions.If even it still in productions,the tvs picture screens panels are 90% important to the tvs and most of the cost of the tvs.The only place u can buy a tvs picture screens panels are the tvs industries themselves.They'll sell it to u,but they'll charges u the same prices as a new tvs.The tvs Techs.policies are tvs that have bad picture screens panels or a broken picture screens panels are those tvs are now,only can be used as salvages tvs for it tvs electronic boards for spare parts,that it.The tvs now are not worth as a whole tvs anymore.

I have a slight yellowing in the center of my screen. We recently replaced the map, and have tried adjusting all picture settings but the yellow patch remains. It's a Sony Grand Wega, by the way.

Don't know if the DLP tvs have a Deguassing coil,inside it bazel frame.Take ur tv aparts check,see if u have big coil rapping with ectrical tapes fit inside ur bazel frame of ur tv.If yes,the componnents parts that make the coil work it dead.This coil demagnictize for the tv tube first turn.All regular small CRT tube tvs '30 inches and down have this dequassing coil inside it bazel frame.

I have a toshiba big screen with three bulbs and the picture has wavey lines on the screen. Does this mean tubes are going out?

Most of these Toshiba sets have a "hyper board" that processes all the signal and a lot of them are going bad---lots of surface mounted filter caps on the board dry out and usually it begins that lines in the picture and after several minutes the problem slowly clears up and or goes away---as time goes on it takes longer and longer for it to go away----For most of these sets the only way to repair is remove the board and send it out for rebuild--rebuild of the board and labor may be more then the TV set is worth.

Rear projection tv issue

As I recall, it was about $300. I knew what the problem was (power supply IC), but I felt it was worth the $300 to have someone else carry the tension of ordering and installing it and if I was wrong, correcting the problem.

It has worked well since. It has been good fortune that I was able to get it fixed twice. Better TVs are coming out all the time and I think we are at a point now where you can get the new HD wide screen units for a pretty good price. If you are able to wait a year or so longer, we might be into OLED TVs and LCDs with LED backlighting. The future is, apparently, 3D. I am going to CES this Thursday where I hear that may be the big thing.

Lamp out - 2nd time in Five years

umm this is very common with progresive scan hd tvs with the lamp. i had a panasonic 52' for 6 years and mines just never turned on. i figured it ws da lamo but we also got fixed before and since these tvs are outdated i suggest u throw it out and sont sell it or fix it its not worth fixing. i suggest you buy a flat screeen lcd because thats all they sell and lcd is better than plasma. they last longer and fixing that JVC you have will cost $$$$ because of labor, bulb replacement and tax.
