Bad display ditti - same eproblem. TV is 15 months old. just went dead. A $1000 repair for a $700 TV!!!!

    After two days of talking w/ Sony their "solution" to my problem is to sell me a lesser quality TV for a "steal" price of $300. Let's see... I started 2008 with a KDL-32ml130 for $700. I've gone through two of them in less than 18 months. Si in the end, if I take their deal I'm left with paying roughly $1200 (after bench charges and fees and out of pocket warranty) for a $600 (@ retail) TV. So I requested the 3 year service plan thrown in gratis. If I'm going to take it on the chin the least they can do is back it up. They said no dice. Best they can do is three more months. So I guess they can't back up their product. As far as I can tell the displays fail at 15 months or so. At least the ones built around Jan 2008. I'm shipping this pile of glass/plastic/metal back to San Diego so they can have a proper burial for it and saving my pennies for a different brand. I will never buy another Sony product as long as I live!. And that is a promise. Best of luck to you all.

HP Pavilion F1503 only displays a split second?


well, its a 2003 LDC 13 years old ,
its bad
the monitor itself of the power pack to it is bad.
you can test it on any PC< or laptop made
if its dead on all , then its dead.
what more needs saying,
older LCD monitors had old CCFL, lamps. that love to fail
newer are LED back lights that last for ever. it seems
so up grade?
seems your back light is dead
ever do the flash light trick
shine it at the dead screen see good data
yes, then the CCFL is DEAD< (or its power supply ,deep inside)
fixed may but would never do a 2003, not now.
lots of used good LED for sale,

The repair man said we need anew screen for 1000 dollars. tv is 4 years old and iI pais 2200 dollars, I bout it from Costco Westbury Ny I paid 169 dollars twice,they couldn't fix it. When we turn on it...


Somehow I don't believe the Display is bad. This sounds like either the Z sustain board or the logic board is bad. Besides, that display costs more than $1000.00, so that raised a red flag to me right away. My recommendation is to take it into a more reputable service center in your area.

LG TV completely dead


Hi,

I'll think your power supply is down.
Since your tv is 15 month old, you've still got waranty left.
Just contact you supplier or LG service.

Kind regards,
Gerard

Screen won't display


I found your site confusing. If you had read my post, you would have noticed that my problem referred to a 15" flat screen 'CELLO' .TV/DVD combo. I had sound but no picture. When switched on, the screen lit up and the word CELLO appeared then the sreen went black

After 20 months old and now dead


I purchased this tv 2/06 and it went POP in 04/07. Less than 60 days after my warranty expired. Went back and forth with Zenith for several months. I refused to take NO for an answer. Customer service stinks and you have to be very persistent. They eventually agreed to fix it. Repairs cost over $2000 and I have my tv back. Next time it breaks just going to throw it out. Zenith sucks.
