Question about LG 42PX5D 42 in. Plasma HDTV
One year old 42 inch LG plasma. Had black screen with sound. Called repair man who told me it was a curcuit board and could be replaced within a week for $360. 6 weeks later, repair man says it is a "bad plasma screen" and will cost $1200 to fix. Does this make sense? Can a "plasma screen" cost this much to replace? Thanks.
Unfortunately, the estimate provided by the repair technician may be correct. While screens can generally be replaced, they often prove to be one the most expensive components of any LCD or plasma TV.
If you are in doubt of the prices quoted to you however, I would strongly suggest contacting LG directly for more information. Many manufacturers are able to provide ballpark figures for replacement parts, especially those that are the most prone to damage or susceptible to hardware failure. Remember that labor charges may not be included in any estimate provided to you by LG, so you may wish to confirm with your repair tech if these charges were included in the $1,200.00 you were initially quoted.
Hope this helps you out.
