Question about Philips 43PP9202 43" Rear Projection Television
This is a really hard question to answer due too there are so many things that could have gone wrong to cause this symptom. but to me if it just died without warning you may have a major problem with the motherboard, power supply or video processor. with these older projection tvs its almost always more expensive to fix than it is to replace. because of the parts and of course you have to have someone that has more than a little expertise in this area to fix them. that means you can easily get 500 to 800 + dollars into the repair of an older tv that at the end of its life and may not last much longer.
for 650 my son just bought a NEW 42inch insignia 1080p HD 120HZ LCD flat panel on sale at best buy. let me say I have a 61" projection magnavox that works fine but the picture quality on his when you set these two up next to each other his tv is amazing. so Im going to say if you think you want to try to repair it look around and get the best quote you can before the technician comes out. that will be 50-100 dollars right there and then they never have the right part on the truck to fix your tv in your living room so he must transport it to his shop. 2-3 weeks go by and he finally gets the parts and repairs it then there will be the bill which you must pay first before he brings your tv back that will include transport both ways a bench fee parts labor fuel and tax.
then you realize you could have bought a new one for $300.00 less ouch! If this sounds familiar my best friend just went threw this last year. also if you decide to get a new tv don't be afraid to haggle over the price my sons tv was originally $850.00 and he got it for 650.00 not bad. well I hope this helps some I know its probably not what you want to here but im trying to be honest where most people wouldn't. I hope I was a little helpfull if you have any more info on the tv that would help me diagnose your problem or I can be of assistance to you please let me know
