Question about Televison & Video
"IS IT WORTH TAKING 50 MILES TO HAVE IT FIXED" (sic) Well this depends on EXACTLY what is wrong? I would do so, initially to find out whats what..
One has little to loose if one takes the unit in to the repair place and asks for a "Quote" before proceeding with any repairs this way you can get an idea of costings and weather to repair or replace.
Unfortunately the reality as you have discovered is that they go down in value by under half almost as soon as you buy it!
I always tell my clients that they must consider replacement, and putting the monies that would be spent into a nice new unit, with a warranty, and also they will be up-to-date with current technology.
Often my clients,do not go through with repair, unless it is of moderate cost, but in some of the more costly jobs, they see it, as do i, that a replacement, with a warranty, is a better option. As an aside here, one could then tear the OLD TV down, and sell the Known Good bits. You'd be surprised who needs parts, i myself often must by from third party sources to effect a repair. So money could be recouped, somewhat,and help out someone else.
Power surges are a real bane, we get them all the time these days, and surge busters seem to do little to protect equipment, however it is always better than nothing.
