Some top brands in no particular order are, Panasonic, LG, Samsung, Sony, Sharp, Toshiba. Bear in mind that within any brand, there are budget models, mid-range and top range models. The LCD panels will range in quality based on their price range. Features will improve with price as well. One top feature is 120 hertz refresh rate leading to very smooth motion. You may not require such smoothness. Size is probably the most overlooked consideration. Take the screen diagonal measure and double it for the closest distance the screen should be from your viewing location. Three times the screen should be the maximum. For a 42" screen it might be 42" x 2 = 84" or 7' minimum and 42" x 3" = 126" or about 10' maximum. Measure your existing viewing distance, go to a Best Buy and stand at that distance to see how it might look in your home. Don't get hung up on precision if you are a few inches outside of these guidelines.

If your viewing area is brightly lit from outside light, favor LCD. If you will be in a dark room, plasma TV's are an option, but they will run hotter, draw more power and will be heavier requiring a substantial mount to wall mount them, not a one man job.

There is no cable screw in jack on tv, how do I hook up tv to cable box

Using an hdmi cable which is the whole point of buying flat screen televisions for the amazing picture quality. They should come with the television but they don't.

Your screw in cable is analogue but your television is now digital. Buy good quality cables with gold flashed contacts. Be prepared for the shock of seeing such a fantastic pin shap picture ??

Why does my 50in vizio cuts off by itself

Please tell me that you didn't REALLY buy a REFURBISHED TV!?!?!?! And a Vizio to boot! The problem with refurbished units is that they rarely get properly tested. Many are returned with intermittent problems that do not show up at the refurbishing center, and thus they are resold with the same defect present. Vizio used to be the YUGO of the TV market. They have gained some credibility, but they still lag far behind the competition for reliability. What you are probably experiencing is a power supply problem, which is the most common problem with flat panel TVs, and a seemingly inevitable problem among Vizios.....usually a week or two after the warranty expires. I hope that you got some kind of warranty with the refurb....many are only 90 days which basically says - good luck sucker!

It will be cheaper for you to buy a new TV set. Replacement screen most likely will cost more than the price of a new set

How much to replace screen on bravia ktl-ex4 46 tv?

Now days a lot of these sets come with the display and controller boards attached in one package, and usually is not cost effective. Cheaper to get new television. Be sure to buy a top quality surge protector to protect your next tv from electrical surges. Spend at least $200.00 or more. Best buy has some good ones too. Radio shack has some but not as high quality as most.

I'm afraid you'll have to buy a new plasma screen. The gas inside the screen is a sealed unit and it would have been disturbed by dropping the plasma screen. If the seal is broken then all sorts of funny colours and pictures would show on the screen, and unfortunately it would require a completley new plasma. I wouldnt of thought it would be fixable.
