Question about Televison & Video

2 Answers

I am in Arlington, VA. My Belkin Power Console surged and took out my 50" Pioneer Plasma TV. It does not respond to anything. Belkin wants a professional repair estimate or a replacement estimate if it can not be repaired. I am paying out of pocket for this. Help!

    Belkin is going to replace the power console. They should also cover the TV repairs or replacement. Problem is everyone I call wants
    $150 just to provide the written estimate. And Belkin requires that I pay that out of pocket up front.

That's easy i do repair estimates, insurance reports all the time for clients, simply take you unit or get a servioceman to call and tell them what you want. They will then write a report for you which you then forward on to the firm concerned. simple. It may cost you initially but it will be worth it in the long run. I usually charge $65.00 for the report and our usual service charge, I don't know what you will be charged but it will pale in comparison to having to outlay YOUR money to buy/repair another 50" TV and Power Console.
You will then be reimbursed for the cost of everything. It may take a while, but just keep on at them every day until you prevail.

    have you contacted a local TV repair shop? they should not charge you for an estimate.

  • gdadd Aug 02, 2010

    I have contacted 8 of them and they all charge $100-$160 for an estimate.

    Sorry; I've never heard of charging for an estimate from a TV repair shop; maybe you can get a hard copy estimate from pioneer.

Hi there! If you have a decoder and this was plugged in on the panel it may have damaged the input board. Alternatively have the decoder checked first or try another TV on the same decoder. Lightning can hit the dish and run down through the line into the decoder and/or into the TV. Best Wishes and Good Luck, JUS004
