Almost anything is repairable if you throw enough money at it. If it's too bad, it would probably end up being less expensive to buy a new TV honestly. It's a pretty vague question but I hope it helps.

Depending on exactly what has been damaged it may be repairable. Of course this would not be covered under your warranty. You may end up finding out that repairing the tv will be more expensive than replacing it depending on what has been damaged.

Have 52"sanyo plasma .


Hi Michelle.
What you are describing is called " capacitor flu".

The capacitors in your tv produce a charge that energizes the screen, and they are failing on you.

The popping noise is the capacitors trying to send electric pulses to the screen, but because one or more of them are defective, the screen doesn't come on, just sound.
And then when the protection circuit kicks in, it shuts the set back off to prevent further damage.

If your tv is under warranty, then by all means send it in for warranty work.
If, like most, the warranty is expired, then you might find that it is cheaper to get a new tv instead of fixing the old one.

This is because in order to make sure that the problem is completely resolved, the repair center will have to remove and replace every capacitor in the set.
This is a time consuming effort, and can be quite expensive to do.

I wish I had better news for you, but sadly this is not the case.

If you do decide to repair it, Fry's, Staple's, and Best Buy are the safest place to get the repairs done at.

They all have trained service techs for this type of repair.

Good luck to you, ma'am, and have a good day.

My hubby kicked our plasma the screen is busted is circle but tv turns on but is black in the circle where kicked can it be fixed


The only way to fix this is to replace the plasma panel itself. This is usually a very expensive repair. WIthout the model number, I can not get you exact costs, but the panel typically will cost almost as much as a replacement set. If you'd like more details, please update this with the model number and I'll try to get the part number and cost.


Thanks,
Dan

I PLUG MY SPEAKER WIRES INTO THE BACK PART OF THE TV, BUT FORGOT TO UNPLUG MY WIRE FROM THE RADIO AN TURN THE RADIO UP AN THE TV WENT OUT. NOW THE TV HAS NO SOUND AND IT KICKS ON AND OFF. TV REPAIR MAN...


Very bad!! By connecting the radio and the TV to the same speakers at the same time, the TV lost and you have blown up the audio amplifiers in the TV. this type of failure can involve a short circuit in the amplifier which could cause the TV to turn itself off as a protection measure.
Didn't the repair person tell you all this?

TV will not turn on.


Good Evening,
Sounds like the Startup Circuit is not kicking in. Looks like a repair shop issue. You can call first and get an estimate should that be the problem.
Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa!

The fix is to replace the screen.
Depending on the size and age of the TV, in some cases it is almost as expensive to repair as it is to replace the entire unit.
Especially with the drop in prices for these types of TV's

What is the age, size and model of your TV?
