Thanks in advance for taking a look at this folks!
According to a posting on craigslist, I'm debating on whether or not to buy the TV. I go to look at it tomorrow. What should or can I do to get this thing all fixed up? Is $50 worth the investment.
This is what he posted on criaglist:
"51 inch Panasonic color TV for sale. HDTV capable. TV works fine, but color needs to be readjusted (repaired). Cash only please and will need to be picked up."
The guy explained it to me like the colors don't line up. I asked him, does it look like you're watching the TV with 3D glasses and he said, that's pretty much exactly it. That was a guess on my part... so ANY advice or direction on either self repair or cost to have a tech repair it would be greatly appreciated.

Before replacing it, check whether AGC voltage is correct [changes according to reception of channels]. Auto-tune in and check this voltage. It should vary when a station is tuned in. and when the search will advance. If not, the tuner too should be checked.

In some cases these TVs were to be returned for exchange. As costs were excessive. If this TV is out of warranty and you have no place to go with this TV, you might just have a hobbiest open the darn thing up. I would say you have a bad capacitor or two in the power supply. This is at its easiest repair. If not you may have a bad LCD panel and that is not worth replacing! Hope I could give a something to work with. Thanks for asking!
As I've stated in many previous posts both Belkin and D-link routers (wired and wireless) are "famous" (for lack of a better word) for dropping connection with your internet carrier.
I *highly* recommend Linksys routers ...whether you get wired or not, they're just plain better ...and powered by Cisco technology. The best part - they're roughly the same price or cheaper than those "other" routers.
Go buy one at Walmart. Hook it up. See the difference. If it doesn't do everything like it should, take it back and you've lost nothing. If it does, take the Belkin and sell it on Craigslist or eBay.
