Question about Televison & Video
I got this set for free, and have been repeatedly assured that it was in perfect working condition when I picked it up. The power cord had been misplaced by the previous owner, so I ordered a new one along with a new remote. The set will not turn on with either remote (old or new) nor with the power button on the front panel. The glass fuse near the power input appears to be okay - no fog on the glass, intact filament.
I've spoken to a local repair shop, and will likely be sending the tv to them for inspection and estimate. I've heard that it might be the "splitter" or "flyback".
Whatever the problem is likely to be, is it possible that it occured while we were moving the set from one house to the other? We were very careful while moving it, and it was strapped securely in the truck. I guess my main question other than the cause of the problem is whether the set was actually working properly when I picked it up, or if the guy "conveniently" lost the power cord so I couldn't test the set to confirm it operated properly.
Like I said, I got it for free. So spending a little money to get it working properly isn't too big of a deal. What would be a reasonable amount to pay for your repair/tune-up suggestions?
Thanks for your help, this site is wonderful resource for us uneducated consumers.
The price to pay for a TV repair or any other appliance is 1/3 of the price of the appliance.
Try to find out how much the TV cost before and how much will it cost now if functional and make a decision base on that.
