Question about Panasonic SDR-H18 USB Hard Drive

1 Answer

The tech guy said that the main board needs to be replaced. But the cost of changing would buy me another camera. Is there any way to repair the same one?

Yes, but it will probably cost more than to buy another camera.

You probably can remove the disk-drive, and connect it to your computer, to "rescue" any movies currently on the camera.

Or, if you purchase an identical camera, you can temporarily "transplant" the old disk-drive from the old camera into the new camera, and then upload any movies to your computer. Then, re-insert the new disk-drive into the new camera.

I need help with my television repair.

Fault to the main power supply regulator section. Either it will be a separate board, or the part of main board. Check and replace damaged component/s at its main power regulator [SMPS] section circuit. Contact any service technician. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Surf the site with patience. Pull up older posts.
It will be best to replace the power supply regulator board as card basis rather than making "Surgery" to it; which usually will make loss for both money and time. Even though you can make it right, it will cost around an amount equal to the cost of a new board; including the cost of (spare parts + service charge) More to say, most of the spare parts to it will be difficult to get from open electronic spare part market. This is true to most of the flat panel TV power supply boards; irrespective of its brand and screen size.

Singer 4552 = pattern selection dial changes but not the indicator on top. What part needs to be replaced so it will work? the local repairman said it would cost more than buying a new machine but I don't...

Normally that means your main board is blown. Average cost close to $300. If you are feeling high tech you can pull it out and try to re solder all the connections, but boards going out is a pretty normal thing. That machine sells on eBay for $100. Shop rate at most repair shops is $70 per hour. You will do better with another machine.

The reason the blue pixels are igniting is caused by the driver board, not the power supply or main board. The drivers are part of the LG screen and cannot be replaced.

No sound picture is fine

This seems to be an occurring problem with this model.
It will need to get in for repair. My thoughts is either an issue with the main power supply not sending the appropriate voltage to the audio board or the audio board itself where the Amplifiers have gone bad. Probably going to be a $100 to 200 repair cost at a good TV Service Shop.

Hello, we are in Australia and the cost of the repair is very expensive due to the part cost.
