Question about Hitachi 57F500 57" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television
The boards (one for each of 3 colors) are about $130ea if purchased new.
a good TV repair tech can diagnose the board that is faulty and only replace the failed part(s).
Labor rates are different in every part of the country.
$45/hr here in Michigan.
To disassemble, troubleshoot, repair, and re-assemble is approximately 3 hours work.
Depending on the problem found - you may squeak out with a bill under $300 (worst case).
Not much more - and you can have a HD LCD 49".
Your call :D
