1 Answer

My Plasma TV

I cannot physically take the TV to a shop :(. Will need TWO MEN for that and don't have even 1/2 of a one ;).

Is there a possibility I can have somebody come to look at it and evaluate if it can be fixed or not?

Greetings jo2358,

You could call 1-888-BestBuy and ask for in home service. They should be able to provide service for you, however if there is no warranty on the television, it would be at your expense. I would call and see how much it would be to get an estimate in your home.

I hope this helps!

Blue dots on my tv screen

The model indicated is a Plasma set and if blue dots in motion (moving) may be either on the MAIN board (processes all signal) or it is even possible to be a problem on the power supply board.

Most likely a shop repair as someone would have to look, order board/s and actually replace them to find which board is bad.

This is the nature of repairs in all Plasma sets.

Only boards are sold and no individual parts.

It might be possible that you own a plasma tv that doesn't have RCA plugins for composite video? If so then you will need to purchase a Wii to HDMI adapter:


It might be possible that you just can't find all the plugins for your Plasma TV? Have you looked on the side of your TV to see if there are any component plugin doors? Or on the bottom of your Plasma? If you had given the make and model of your Plasma Tv then that would have been more helpful in finding out if it actually does have plugins someplace on it.

Can i replace a broken screen on a 42 inch plasma tv a vizio

You can indeed, although they are outrageously expensive. The BEST way, is to get a screen, from a Junked unit, that has had some other problem other than the screen. I often do this in my shop, to effect repair that otherwise would be cost prohibitive.
Why do you think you need a new screen, is it physically damaged? I ask this as screens are relatively "Hardy" and it is usually the electronics that fails and not the Plasma screen

50 " Samsung Plasma TV

Get the tech supplier to tell to the manufacture and the store what he told you.

Physical damage on any electronic device is very hard to have serviced under warranty. I have never seen a plasma display crack on its own. But, anything can happen.

I once saw a man drop a newly bought plasma TV in a parking lot outside from where he bought it and the screen broke. He never even made it home from the store!

Maybe you should contact a lawyer or someone who can give you legal advice about how to proceed with this. In different countries and different states the consumer protection laws are different.

Philips plasma

I had this problem. If you are saying it happened on your plasma screen rather than the receiver box, then the problem can be that the power source inside the plasma needs to be replaced.But Philips will charge a fortune for just looking at the TV. So you might as well take it to your local repair shop.
