Question about Mitsubishi WS-55857 55" Rear Projection Television
I have had this TV for seven years and it's worked fine until this weekend. It started dropping out video segments of as TV show last night. This morning it won't show anything (just blue screen). I wired the satellite feed directly from the sat receiver box to the TV -- but nothing just blue screen. When I tried to access the TV's onscreen Menu (pressing the Menu button on the TV remote), the screen went all black -- when I hit that button again, it returned to a blue screen. I toggle through all the input channels on the TV -- nothing changed but the channel ID in the upper left corner. I can hear sound through my surround sound system -- so I know the sat receiver is working OK.
I think the TV chipset is dead -- Is this worth fixing, or should I just buy a new TV?
The repairs may cost starting at $ 75.00 to $100.00 for the estimate and basic trouble shooting the final cost of the repair may be about $200 to $400.00 dllars depending on the price of the part and the labor that is charged.
