Re: Should I buy this set used or are there many problems...

Do not under any circumstances buy this TV unless you are a service technician. The people who are trying to sell it to you probably already had to have it fixed once before and "forgot" to tell you. This TV is the definition of Lemon. Tell them you know the thing is gonna break and you'll give them $100 to take it off their hands. Otherwise be prepared to replace the power supply in a couple months and spend tons of money or man hours trying to get this thing to work.

5 blinks - check the 5v SOS D Board since the set is a plasma.

Your best best is to obtain a quote from an authorised Panasonic service centre on the likely cost to replace that board if required, then you can make a decision afterwards - to either go ahead with the repair, or cut your losses and purchase a new set if the latter option turns out to be cheaper.

Always ask about and insist on extended warranties whenever you buy a new TV such as plasmas. These will cover you against expensive repairs, and having to buy a new one each time the old one breaks down in the future.

These days manufacturers lean toward board replacement in plasma and LCD TVs rather than individual components, as it is quicker and easier to replace a whole board than to try and fix an old faulty one. It's also tidier in terms of layout.

Connecting JVC television set model AV29LX2 / JVC home theatre system/satellite decoder / Sony DVD recorder

You need to buy a splitter in order to put one to the DVD recorder and one to the tv from the decoder. You should be able to get one at the Local Radio Shack or other electronics store.

If you need help locating a store, please let me know

Otherwise Thank you for using Fixya and Have a Good Day!

and Good Luck...

We have a Samsung 27" Dynaflat HD that won't turn on.

I have over 10 years experience in electronic tech support.

I know this isn't what you want to hear, but the problem you've described can't be fixed with troubleshooting. Your TV will have to be repaired. There is a part that has developed a defect and needs to be replaced. The question will be, is the part still available? Before paying a TV repair person $75+ to diagnose the problem, ask yourself if you're willing to pay $150 minimum to fix this particular set. Also keep in mind that most TVs that old have a very limited number of replacement parts still available. Normally it will cost at least $75 to have the set looked at by a repair shop (diagnostics). If the part needed to complete the repair isn't available, you won't get that money back.

I hope I've provided you useful assistance and that this information allows you to make an informed decision as to how to proceed from here.

Please let me know if I can be of further assistance.

KV 36XBR800

About 5 years ago, I was servicing many of these sets under a warranty service contract. This series of set is fairly complex to work on. It takes a very experienced tech who knows this model series very well to work on these.

After 4 to 5 years it is very possible that the picture tube (CRT) may be weak, and there can be fault conditons in the power supply and scan circuits. Most of the time, these sets are not feasable to service when out of warranty and there are major component failures. Considering that it is a CRT set proprietary replacement parts are not usually available from the manufactures. CRT sets are no longer being produced.

Technicaly, if you want to pay the cost and if the proprietary type replacement parts can be found, your set can be serviced by an experienced Sony service technician. When your set was in production a new factory replacement CRT alone was in the price range of $1200. This does not include the 3 to 4 hours of labour to replace it. If the flyback and horizontal output transistor has to be replaced along with a number of capacitors, you can add on at least another $300 to $500 minimum. Out of the shop a CRT job with a repair can cost about 1/2 the price of its new value!

For much less than what you say you paid for your set, you can get a new LCD or Plasma HDTV for about 1/2 of what you paid. Believe me, if you go for a high end Plasma or Sony set of today it will outperform your CRT set.

Sony trinitron 27" tv not working

Hi. If the picture was good before set went wrong then I would say yes get it fixed. Frame fault is pretty straight forward for tv shop to repair. New sets regardless of make will not last 10 years before they go wrong you will be lucky if a new set lasts 3 years before going wrong. At the moment in the repair shop I work in we are scrapping off LCD & PLASMA that are under 3 years old they are very expensive to repair.
